It was with this that I came up with the idea to produce a 3D of a building that had been inspired by the Farnsworth house, so I set about looking for similar buildings and eventually found myself repeatedly coming back to one building in particular; the Olnick Spanu House by Alberto Campo Baeza. This was exactly the project I was looking for with a modern, sleek, minimal building set against a backdrop of heavy forrest with a stunning vista across a river to the hills beyond.
So I've started creating the building, piece by piece using photographs gleaned from the internet; I had to re-draw in CAD all of the floorplans and tweak little bits & pieces to get them to work properly, but it was worth it as it's taken a lot of the headache out of working out certain details.
Here are my work in progress images.:
[small update] A few more shots to add:
Currently focusing my efforts on the kitchen area, which is gradually coming together. I'm having to freestyle this quite a bit as I've almost exhausted all the info that can be gleaned from the photo's I've got.
