STAGE 2
Massing Model

A SketchUp model was built from a CAD site plan. Building heights ranged from 2-3 stories. Multiple camera options from this general location were reviewed by the client. This camera location reveals both sides of the development while highlighting the central green. The terminus of the view is the tall clock tower.

STAGE 3

Preliminary View

We really start to see the character and fabric of the project here. The SketchUp model is articulated with details. Cars, people, trees and vegetation are carefully composed and roughly sketched in to further enhance the focal point. All of the elements direct the viewers attention inward. The cars are centrally pointed. The eye dances around the image and is always recentered at the tower.

STAGE 4

Final Drawing

The final drawing refines the people, cars, trees and architecture. Here we see the start of shadow areas that help define the overall environmental feel. Small changes were incorporated prior the final colorization.

STAGE 5

Final Rendering

Coloring the image in a watercolor style provides a "soft touch" to the project. This rendering style leaves room for imagination and interpretation. The buildings are really a backdrop for the intended life style of the project. There's retail activity at the first floor. Residential spots are above. Kids are playing. Mom is walking the little one. People are easting under shade umbrellas. Light poles are accented by flowering pots. It's all in there. It looks designed and hits the right tone.

STAGE 1

Documentation Gathering

This town center perspective was one of 4 renderings produced for the project. The client provided a master site plan and photos for design direction.
