After the design of the project was completed, I was asked to make a quick render for the client. I was playing with different camera angles and I stumbled into this one. I wasn’t really involved in the design of the project, my work mates and project manager were the one in charge.
I usually don’t like (or make) rainy renderings, but with this project we explored a number of options for making the scene feel more like “Portland”. And, the weather during the last few weeks has provided plenty of inspiration. 😀 🌧
“Home” was the word that used to be very personal and depicted emotions of that varied person to person. With modern times came modern trends – such as renting out private spaces for the sake of earning more money – that have taken away the beauty of such emotions and private spaces leaving behind empty and silent spaces which might be filled with people but lack the emotional integrity and richness. The visual depicts the transformation of a “home” into a “house”.
This was done in collaboration with BIAS Architecture, and the Revit model was provided by their team from which I produced these images. For lighting up the scenes, I used Peter Guthrie Hdri’s 1224 Clear Sky and 1735 Clear Sky for daylight views rendered in Corona renderer.

People discovered fire. Fire keeps us safe and warm. Fire helped people to gather into groups, created families and later – countries. It is the origin of modern life. Thanks to fire, communities left caves and became mobile, having more opportunities to discover the world.
Our fjordseeing shelter opens the possibility to enjoy the beauty of Norwegian fjords 24 hours a day. It allows visitors to appreciate outstanding views under any weather conditions and have rest after the exhausting journey.
The shape of the building emerged from the environment of beautiful Scandinavian land, harsh weather and a hearth aimed to handle these circumstances. It is designed to cause minimal interventions to the natural landscapes, carefully merging humanmade and nature-made forms. Inside, one can find all needed supplies for survival and enjoy 360° view.

The main piece here is the bookcase made of thin construction steel, complemented by the oak wood wall panel.
