hey guys, i just got the 1.41 eval podium last night and ive sort of been tinkering with it. here's my first attempt in rendering. ive included the whole sheet so you can see the rendered image in context to its final placement.

its a project i am currently working on.
thats about it for now. gotta work on my thesis.

I love the page layout! The upper rendering is a little gloomy and dark... maybe it is the color of the walls. I'd suggest adjusting the levels in photoshop. The floor material looks like a shipping crate.

The plan and bottom rendering are excellent use of Sketchup. Nice work!

 

The more i look at the layout... the upper and lower rendering are almost the same view - a bit redundant. Maybe you could use Podium to get an eye-level view from inside the space for the upper rendering? Help people to feel like they are in the room.

thanks zem. im a fan of your work man. just a couple of things though.
the gloominess was intentional. the clients have a liking for deep earth tones, hence the predominance of wood. the wood-crate flooring in the main dining area is exactly that, they are beaten wood planks treated with an acrylic matte sealant. 4"x6' if i remember correctly. the grey areas are 600mmx600mm polished granite tiles. i did not put a realistic perspective as this layout was meant for the contractor. hence the redundancy in details. since they might want to view certain aspects of the space indepedently (say a general contractor vs a foreman vs a cabinetry fabricator perhaps). i have a different sheet for the client presentation. will try to thinker with light levels i guess. it may help in the general character of the space, as you mentioned.

on a different note. is there a chance at all of releasing a student license? [tbd this is for you]. im just a working student. and i honestly cannot afford the license. so im stuck with the eval. hope i get the chance to develop my skills with it. but then when the eval expires, im pretty much screwed.

I second that Zem! I love the layout of the page..the mix of a rendered scene with dimensioned and annotated drawings with descriptions really gets the point across..and looks cool too! I guess he has a point about the repetition of the first and last image, but I kind of like the mixed media look of the last image. I like the design of the space..it  has a bit of an industrial feel to it. Very nice..looking forward to seeing more of your work

I have a couple of dumb questions..how did you arrange the different images on that one page layout..PS? How large is the finished page?

Wow... this is the first time i heard of anyone doing a rendering and layout of this quality for the contractor!

 

The granite tile is perfect... but i still think the wood flooring looks weird because there seem to be gaps between each plank, and one can see the joists running below. Looks like an exterior wood deck. In reality the planks would be tongue-in-grooved together, no? Also the greenish wall color is not helping the space i think... but maybe it looks better in eye level perspective. I would love to see the client presentation sheet.

 

Cool work! Good luck with your thesis...

Nice work

 

The layout is great, maybe a little over the top as others have commented, your choice of textures needs some second considerations. I understand this is a hyperthetical project and you will be graded, however as you said the owner/investor noted their preferances and they favored earth tones and darker woods...well in my experiances they would carry that theme to cabinetary too. The refrigerator and eye level stove need to be 18" apart by code and your access around the island needs to be at least 36" (looks less). Dishwasher?

 

Oh replace dinning table with a 6 seater as the 10 seater makes area look very small.

 

Otherwise awsome presentation.

good day everyone. here is one of my simulations shown in an avp for the
client. in response to zem, the wood floors do have space. they are old beaten down planks (of the sort used outdoors) laid out like tiles. no tongue-and-groove. you are right though. the other rendering was a thad dark. this one is lighter for a night effect. as to maxmax, this is not a hypothetical project. it is an actual design for a couple client. the clearance on the three sides of the island is 950mm (37.5") and the span from the cabinet to the ref is about a meter. the plan in the layout is scaled, so you can zoom in. to fella 77, it was laid out in ps cs2. the final image is sized for a3 printing.

i guess since ive mentioned it, i should post some of my presentation boards for thesis. i think i need your guys' help and feedback on that one more. i am still currently trying to figure out my presentation scheme for my thesis delibarations. i always want my avp presentations to have a certain conceptual look. just finished my pre-deliberations 3 days ago. my final deliberations is in two weeks. im pressed for time since im balancing thesis and classes with working so i can earn. but then again, its an experience.

thanks everyone. i hope you guys can provide some feedback on my thesis boards, of course that will be a different thread altogether.

Nice perspective! It looked a little too yellow so i changed the hue and lightened it a little. How's this? I think it might be nicer if the omnis are not so strong. The light cast is perhaps too bright.

 

Since maxmax brought up clearances... is it really ok for the fridge to be adjacent to the oven? Seems to be a conflict in hot-cold.

 

That's very unusual to use flooring with gaps inside... how to clean it? it could trap a lot of dirt. Or are you filling the gaps with acrylic sealant???

 

I look forward to seeing your thesis, wabisabi =) I bet it looks awesome. For some reason i always think your name is wasabi...

oh i see your online man. the planks are sitting on top of a mesh, with a tray catch underneath at the pool end of the dinind area (the pool surrounds and bends the two sides of this space). the spacing of the planks is intentional, so if there is water it will seep through and magically disappear.

thanks, i had a similar render using it think either a soft light or screen blending mode. but i opted to use this one since it looked too sepia-like. might offend the young couple. you are right, it is too yellow. but i assumed its ok since it is a night shot. the brightness of the light i cant really help. had to provide a glary contrast since its supposedly night.

will look forward to posting my thesis boards prototypes.

Wasabi (?!)

Thanks for the response. I would love to see more of your layout sheets..please post them. I like the scene above, the Zem re touch looks a bit better than the original IMHO! It looks like the only thing in the scene that's render output is the floor, and the lights? Really nice work..

I don't think I would put a fridge right next to a double oven either..I love the look of the floor but the functionality?...I wouldn't walk across it with high heels on (not that I own high heels,or wear them...really, I don't...no,really..)

sorry guys. i shouldve explained the details of the design. though putting the oven beside the ref seem counter-intuitive there are some details that i should've mentioned beforehand. it really is hard to imagine without knowing all the specs of the space.

door to the right leads to the dirty kitchen, where the messy cooking takes place. oven at the formal (performing) kitchen is for finishing only. there is an additional counter to the right of the island, beside a glass panelling wall overlooking a library. the island itself has a concealed sink system, without a cover panel. and the end where the stools are located extends by 600mm to become a serving table for large gatherings. the top counter of the island is on tracks that provide the extension as well as conceal the sink.
