Lenschow & Pihlmann – Summer house
Architectural visualization in the ideal location.
Our work: 3D/CGI & Retouch
3D visualization of buildings is now an established part of the architectural process. Normally this happens before the building exists. However in this case the situation was reversed as the building had already been built.
The aim of this project was to show the building in an ideal situation, surrounded by nature and close to the sea. Lenschow and Pihlmann envisioned the house in a typically Nordic coastal situation, so they pointed us towards Sweden’s archipelago as the perfect location for their summer home.
As the project progressed we consulted with the architectural team in setting up cameras that highlighted the homes design and it’s relationship to the immediate surroundings.
Lenschow & Pihlmann were impressed to see that we could art direct nature, using our 3D tools to create naturalistic looking controlled chaos. Working from our extensive library of objects we furnished the various rooms and finally added the lighting to match the requested times of day.
The final touches
The final renders where passed onto the retouch department. Organic features such as the sea and fire where added in post using stock from our photo library. From here the process was very similar to how we would handle photographic material, adjustments were made to create a Nordic look and enhance the small details.
This project is a great example of our ability to recreate objects on a small and large scale. Our CADline process allows us to build virtual versions of products, but it doesn’t stop there. We have the ability to create models without CAD data, on an architectural scale, whilst presenting your design in the best context.
