Sunny Hertfordshire

So, a quick update from the Click3D bunker for you all: Yesterday morning was spent on site taking reference photographs with the shiny-new Canon 550D. Inexplicable traffic jams on the M4 and M25 aside, there are far worse ways to spend a Monday morning. The photographs consisted of a mixture between high-resolution RAW files for photomontage purposes and JPEGs giving visual reference for colours, finishes, form and so on, as well as backplates for post-production. Once back in the office ...

Good morning and welcome.

So, welcome to the new iteration of the Click3D website. This has been under development for quite some time now in conjunction with KGK Creative (www.kgkcreative.co.uk) but, suffice to say, this has been well worth the wait.

As you can no doubt see, the design of the site has been more slick than the original, albeit retaining some key graphical aspects, and there is added content and functionality such as this here blog. Over the coming weeks more images will be ...

This image was one of three created which were required to illustrate the re-imagining of the former storage area into a new home.

KASC Administration Building

Architectural illustration of office building.

A visualisation for a proposed administration building in Saudi Arabia. Every single panel, inspired by the Voronoi pattern, was modelled in 3D to achieve the necessary realistic effect.

This rendering was part of a suite of images required for the abortive KASC project, with the brief and design evolving over time. As opposed to the traditional architectural visualisation project which has all elements in place at the beginning, this was driven by an ongoing design process and the drip-feed of data ...

Kitchen Render

Architectural rendering of a kitchen.

This rendering depicts a kitchen with the image’s intention being to illustrate the quality of fixture and fitting and sell the idea of a particular lifestyle.

As it was to form part of a property marketing exercise, it was necessary to create an image that offered both an aspirational feeling yet achievable at the same time, effectively illustrating a high degree of quality of finish but not at the expense of portraying something intangible or beyond the prospective buyer’s means.

Summer Getaway

Architectural visualisation of summer home.

A rendering of a summer getaway, somewhere outside Barcelona. The image seeks to depict serenity and peace and the possibility of escape from the day-to-day world.

This visualisation project took some loose sketches of a building similar to that illustrated and worked with the feeling they offered to create a site. With a strong rectilinear form, it was felt that reflecting this in the surrounding area would offer the best solution. Also, with a change of level in the dwelling itself, ...

Interior Conversion

3D rendering of a living room.

A visual for marketing material showing the interior of a bank which was to be converted into flats, this image illustrating a living room and so the space, quality and lifestyle to potential buyers. One image from a set of three (See also the “Kitchen Render” post).

As with all marketing material, it was critical to create a rendering that offered not only a sense of space but one of quality and aspiration in order to make prospective purchasers want to ...

KASC Station

Architectural visualisation of transport hub.

A rendering which takes a conceptual approach to illustrate space and spatial interaction within a rail station, achieved by ‘exploding’ the building into individual elements, giving the image a 3D model effect.

This was a different project to many architectural visualisation tasks in the sense that it dealt with spatial interaction and became part of the design process instead of simply being a slick visual. A key part to this project was the desire to take it away from the slick ...

Interior Visualisation of Public House

3D rendering of a public house interior.

This interior visualisation was commissioned to illustrate the quality of interior design principles applied to a proposed public house within a very sensitive site, namely a Grade-II listed building.

This was an interesting project owing to the site and also the high level of detail required in order to make the final rendered image a realistic indicator of the treatments proposed.

A number of carved stone elements were present within the site and it was these which offered a not insignificant challenge ...
