Portfolio update: Bury Hill (Part one)

Architectural visualisation services for property development.

Good morning! – Hope you all have that Friday feeling as we tumble towards another (hopefully) relaxing and rewarding weekend.

It’s been quite busy in the land of Click3D recently – most recently assistance has been delivered in the setting up of an in-house visualisation department at a design and build firm, with phase one complete and future phases waiting in the wings. So, taking that into account, perhaps it is time to add another image to the portfolio – This latest entry was created for a private client in Surrey who required visuals showing a striking house and its integration into the existing site.

The project itself offered up some interesting challenges in terms of modelling as there were some very specific details to observe – most obviously the sedum roof which incorporated parametric curves, as well as the need to accurately depict the existing reeds and irises, not to mention the landscape which had some quite severe gradients to work with.

The cameras required a careful and sensitive approach to their positioning as the core of the brief was to illustrate that although the design of the property was clearly modern and eye-catching, it sat well and unobtrusively within the context of its surroundings. Several initial positions were set up and discussed and gradually repositioned and reduced in number until the final two were resolved. Time of day was another important element within the client’s brief, this being discussed and fixed after the physical positions of the cameras had been established. All in all, this was a very enjoyable and successful project to work on, which is hopefully communicated within this blog entry and the images created.
