Log cabin in the woods is actually two houses together on a sloping site. Single storey at high level and double storey at the low level. The house was modelled in Sketchup and brought into 3ds Max, forest pack combined with assets from megascans, maxtree and evermotion. The saw cut log ends were modelled and scattered on the front of the cabin and floor generator was used to model each individual piece of plank cladding to the sides and rear. Lit with a Peter Guthrie Hdri and rendered with fog in Corona. This scene was used as a homework for Canaletto Online Archviz School with Santi Sanchez, which I highly recommend.
The corrugated house was obtained through a texture with bump and displacement texture that was instanced into a corona displacement mod. The environment was created with textures and assets from Megascan and scattered about with Forest pack.
The design attempts to make the pond and residence a single entity in which the owners can enjoy and connect with the wild creatures that come to the water on both regular and varied schedules. To this end, the building of Douglas Fir and Cor-ten steel was placed as a bridge across the north end of the pond. The pond itself was enlarged and loosely ordered to integrate with the structure of the residence.
The site plan was choreographed so that visitors park their vehicles 150 feet away. They then walk through the forest to a bridge crossing a small section of the pond, and on to the main entry. The broad vista of the pond offers a compressive release upon opening the front door. It is the hope that this experience will be memorable to the visitor.
A smooth and clean evening view mbr to city view.
The scene was rendered in 3ds Max, my render engine of vray. I used CameraRaw in PSD for some slight noise reduction and all other tonemapping is done.
Hope you enjoy!
