Corona Loft by Bertrand Benoit

Bertrand Benoit seems to have more and more fun with Corona. After uploading a few full V-Ray scenes to his warehouse, seeing a full Corona interior scene up there seemed like the next logical thing, and indeed – The Corona Loft is up their for grabs.

Octane Corners by Bertrand Benoit

It is safe to say that no matter what render engine Bertrand Benoit picks up, the outcome will be among the best that was ever made! with that render engine.

Graticule House 3D Recreation by Bertrand Benoit

Bertrand Benoit posted on the forums a masterful recreation of a house designed by David Jameson Architects – the Graticule House (see the original Graticule House it in the inspiration section).

I wish I can “never finish” projects this way!

Graticule House / David Jameson Architects

There are many photos to explore in this set offering great reference for how such a house could look both day and night, in and out. You should also check out Bertrand Benoit’s 3d recreation of Graticule House.
