Architecture and Interior Design
Architecture is not just skin-deep. It’s not just about how the space looks, it’s about how it’s being used, how it interacts with a person. While I mostly work in residential interior design, I’m passionate about natural building materials and sustainable architecture.
A picture is worth a thousand words. Whether it’s a product or an architectural design, both interior and exterior, single image, video or even an interactive game-like presentation, having a visualisation can help communicate ideas and even market and sell them.
Digital 3D models have a wide range of use, from proof of concept, to assets for your digital project even to CAM uses. Different projects require different types of approaches. I have experience with polygonal modelling, where proper topology is necessary, as well as NURBS modelling for CAD and CAM use cases. Another exciting field is Procedural modelling, that allows for the creation of models, that would be otherwise too complex to model by hand and rapid iteration or versioning is another great advantage of this approach.
Creating accurate digital representations of physical models is becoming really popular. Whether documenting archaeological sites or artefacts, buildings before reconstruction, a model of a person, face, or even car for your project, 3D scanning can save a lot of time, provide extremely precise data and add a new level of realism.
Sometimes, a physical model is better, than even VR. Whether it’s a working prototype to test, a replacement part that isn’t sold anymore, a product, that will only be manufactured in small numbers or even a one-of-a-kind architectural model, that can be taken apart and allows the client to experience your idea with more than just a screen in front of them, 3D printing is the future.
Sometimes, you need a very specific tool, or you’re facing a very specific repetitive task. Most 3D software today has a Python API, that allows the user to save hours, sometimes even days of work with just a few lines of code and create custom tools, that fit your workflow or project precisely.
For those times, when modelling and rendering is overkill and there’s a physical object available, photography is still the best and most efficient way to document and present both things and ideas. With the help of advanced retouching and color grading techniques, a photo can be edited beyond recognition to suit the needs of the project.
