We have been working with the Regional and Local Architects on the creating images and animations that were used to help City Officials gauge the relative merits of a proposed Marriott Suites Hotel. The site is one of Charlottesville’s most prominent under developed lots . The Developer and the entire design team wanted to highlight the investments of integrated design, public amenities and exterior finishes planned for the building. Using the images and animations we produced, the project marched through the entitlement process and won approval from the Planning Department, BAR, and the City Council. Welcome to Charlottesville Marriott Suites!
Working with the Architect’s drawings we created 3d solids for the home and the surrounding site. We then added textures,entourage and landscape features based on the planting schedule and site plans. These final images will be used in an on going marketing campaign that will include animations of entire site, a wide range of amenities including community fire pit, walking paths, equestrian trail, tree house, and entrance gates. Now that we have the entire site modeled, every aspect of the project can be explored!
We are very excited to be publishing this animation using a newly integrated rendering software recently incorporated into our work flow. This clip shows amazing exterior decks and patios for a new mixed use building. We created the model from CAD drawings provided by the architect, and populated the scenes with furniture, people and plants to illustrate how the exterior spaces might function.
This animation was created for the development team responsible for the design of this 500+ acre planned community. The program consists of a new retail and corporate office core with strong connections to existing road and river infrastructure. The scheme is further developed with multi-family, townhomes and single family residential units with significant density to support GEM car designated pathways, pedestrian thoroughfares and natural trails by a well known and stocked trout fish steam.
Leveraging the existing natural amenities of the site and surrounding national parks, additional facilities including a hotel lodge, cottages and camping areas nestled in between an existing pond and riverway. This animation was used by the development team to help secure funding for the project, as well as allowing the design team to envision the project’s intentions 3 dimensionally.
I was hired by a design/build contractor to help the homeowner of this project visualize a new 4 season porch. The homeowner wanted to know how the planned renovations would effect the overall look and feel of the house. Using Sketchup and a newly incorporated rendering/animation program, we were able to show the builder and the home owner interior and exterior views.
These stills were created for a presentation to the board of trustees for a exclusive Northern Virginia Country Club. The new facility includes open and enclosed swing bays overlooking an existing driving range, 4 Simulator Bays, outdoor porches, a Restaurant and putting greens. My client and the the board where very excited to see the design concept brought to life. Next step is communicating these ideas to the rest of the members.
These images where used by the architects to illustrate design intentions, urban scale, and material quality of a new Marriott Suites Hotel situated on a prominent corner lot near the Historic Downtown Mall.
Commissioned by Charlottesvillle Tomorrow, we created renderings and animations of the very contentious and expensive “Western Bypass”. Thanks to a very successful Kickstarter Campaign Charlottesville Tomorrow hosted, the animation and visualization project we did was completely funded by concerned community members.:
