Design your space so you can see it, before you start.

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…

Ocean Front Property…Really?

3D Design 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.

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.
