On the Go and “Over The Top”

I made this page using my cell phone to test how intuitive it is both for me the author and you the end-user.  WordPress created an app that enables me to administer my site from my phone!

How does that help us?

This will allow me to share at the moment the good idea comes and share when we are on the go.

So here is a project that I helped design utilizing 3D graphics and also managed construction for Strite Design Remodel.

Who can guess where this is?

These are the 3D renders:

3D view looking towards the back wall, view from door

We had to use a crane to get this done.

We made the counter for the stone sink from 3oo+ year old wood, we cut the mirror to create an organic slope, we ran the tiles vertical with a tapering organic leading edge.  The walls are Venetian plaster, the floor is stained concrete, built like a shower including a drain, and the structure was built to commercial code requirements with a stucco exterior.  The door was recycled from a fire, and was re cut into a proper size door for this project.  Pretty fun.

Here are a couple of actual photos:

We will showcase this project at some point, but wanted to try creating a page from my phone.

Designing In My Neighborhood

Sometimes, I like working close to home. This one is within a few blocks of my house.

This was the first thing I saw on this project…hmmm, now to make it legit.

The real question was, “What can we do with this space?”

I designed the following solution.

Our clients were happy with the results.

So they built it.

Now they really love it.

In fact, they loved it so much they had us design them a deck, patio and railing too…

Custom Cabinetry at Hoff Design Build starts with great design including thinking both inside and outside the box.  Once the project is designed, we then build locally in Boise Idaho, with great management and craftsmanship.

Modern Craftsman

Hoff Design Build is able to assist you in New Construction and Remodel design and planning.  We help you to see the project before you begin.  Although this process is not necessarily inexpensive, it by far has proven to be worth every penny once the actual construction begins.  Peace of mind comes with visual clarity.

Here is a sample of a current project that I have been working on this week (May 7, 2015) for Strite Design Remodel.

Rendered images require time and planning to make them represent the actual look,  many times we improvise by creating the objects that you see in these images from scratch.

The posts, beams, patio and deck were not library items in my CAD program, so all that needed to be made by creating objects and applying textures to them.

As you can see in this drawing, the ground follows a slope.  We are able to assign elevation information to our drawings to assist in creating as realistic representation as possible.

I take photos to use in the backgrounds which helps to make a good rendering more realistic.

Notice the shadows?  We are able to apply sun data based on time and location…pretty cool.

Ocean Front Property…Really?

3D Design by Hoff Design Build

Ocean Front Property
3D rendering of a future condo to be built on the beach by Hoff Design Build

The idea behind great 3D design is to be able to see it before it becomes a reality.  So in this project that ocean in the background is really not there, but in order to make the sales brochures believable to the clients, they need to see what they will be purchasing.  It was important to my client that the view in the images be the same view buyers will have when they purchase these condos.

So How did we pull it off?  I created a wide image consisting of pictures taken on location in a panoramic view and made a 3D wall in my architectural software program, and pasted the image to the wall.  I directed lighting at the wall until i was comfortable with a feel like the sun.  I placed the models of the condos in front of the arched wall and then rendered from inside the condos.

And that is how it was done.

We did not have to draw the entire structure, just the space necessary to show the views of the ocean.

And the kitchen of course…

3D Archictectural Design and Church?

What about a Church?

Our 3D design services really came in handy to help communicate the big idea of converting the Coors Warehouse into a cool Church Building.  It worked! It was built.

First I needed to create the “As-Built” plans in order to have something to work from.
