Mixed Use

Postby bcthompson » Thu Aug 12, 2010 3:51 pm

Design study for a mixed use building with retail at street level since I usually do residential and wanted to branch out a bit. This is the first of 2 design options, the second will have right-angled glazing at wall corners, right-angles on the balcony corners with glass railings, and more traditonal shed roofing for a more modern look (may upload a parametric standing seam metal roof if I decide to make one for this project). Probably going to dupe one of the levels as well to make it 5story. Each design option will have a second view from the back parking lot as well, I'll post those when I finsh them.

The car models were downloaded from RevitCity (didn't think to check here first) and the scalies were just Bing searches that I photoshopped out of their backgrounds.

Thanks, currently taking an Intro to Sketchup class and working on the final (only a simple model is required but I'm doing all the framing and finishes for practice ;) ) so it will probably be a few weeks before I get back to work on this thing

Thanks for sharing this with us! Superb piece of work.

When you saying taking an intro to Sketchup course- are you learning it, or are you teaching it?

Sketchup is a brilliant bit of kit- I love it! It's like chalk and cheese when compared to Revit- but it's all "horses for courses"

Cheers,

Just taking, not teaching, although it's something I'm very familiar with so I end up helping out a lot of the folks who are falling behind. Learning some interesting things though, like making an animation between two sections to show a building sort of being built from the ground up. Makes me want to play with Revit's animation functions...

'Sounds great. What level is the course pitched at? Sounds like you may be too advanced for it?! ;)
