The house model for this Challenge will be provided for you. You will have to create two images – Exterior and Interior. The environment is totally up to you but keep the basic house geometry as it is… other than that you can do whatever you like. You might want to add some details here and there depending the viewpoints you pick since some areas of the model have less detail then others

About GH House 3d model

GH House was designed by Dunsky Kornhauser Architects, an Israeli based firm. By downloading and using the house model you agree to credit blog and original author of the model – Ronen Bekerman. Other then that you may use it for anything you like other then actually building a real house based on this design… the architects will not like that 🙂
