Ludvík Koutný showcases a remarkable set of renders, recreating Louis Kahn’s Esherick House in 3D using Mental Ray as his render engine. We don’t see too many Architectural Visualizations that good done with Mental Ray… And this house design by Louis Kahn is new too me so I’m grateful for it for this reason too.

Check out the original post on Ludvík’s personal blog – Esherick House by L. Kahn

Go ahead and add your feedback and questions down below. Would be interesting to get more insight about how this scene was made. More insight about this scene is available in the Making of Articles – Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 & Part 4.

Ludvik's render is being featured on archdaily as a photo... no better complement than that, right? I sent them a message about it, so the credit is done right.

The renders were awesome but the best part for me was the little animal checking out the camera as he was scaling the tree. He obviously has a sense of humour :)

Can we get a rare "making-of" for us metal ray users? fantastic renders and a great blog, thanks to each of you!

Memory peak was about 10GB, i never hidden any objects that were out of camera frame. I wanted to create whole place, and then virtually walk around, and take pictures :)

Amazing work, some minor things could have taken a little more care but overall is fantastic. I specially love the greenery in most of the shots, reminds me a lot to the renderings of Alessandro Prodan.

Very nice renderings!! I'm agree with Ronen about the grass, maybe is also too thick.. Anyway I really like these images!

I wonder how much memory did this scene use at render time... peak value?

I especially like the last frontal dusk image with lights inside and the Interiors have such a photographic feel to them it is remarkable.

About the exterior foliage... although in general it is very well done - the grass is a bit repetitive and needs more variations... but this is nitpicking!

Great work @rawalanche
