hidden pool

When I first saw the photographs from ROMAIN LAPRADE for the exhibition summer pools, I felt in love with the design and architecture of this privat swimming pool. So I took some spare time to visualize these images about the white oasis pool designed by Alain Capeillères for his summer home hidden in the hills of Six-Fours-les-Plages. I hope you like them. Can you feel the Summer?

House in Leira

Probably the most complicated part of the entire project was modelling the house. Firstly it was challenging because even after days I would discover new details and spaces that I hadn’t seen before or are not visible in photos. The modelling part was done with an obsession for the details.
The house itself is so minimal that would result in a non-photorealistic render if all the little details and shadow gaps were not modelled properly. So the main focus was to obtain a model as detail as possible. The second challenge was lighting and fine tuning the textures of the wood and reflections.
Once I was happy with both model and materials, I started to study different cameras and particularly different lighting conditions.
And I guess it’s worth mentioning the grass and gravel which were all 3d modelled and scattered with Multiscatter.
I hope you like it.

This series of images looks to capture different atmospheres and moments that the client may find during the everyday. By creating a holistic 3D environment, the project was able to be explored in full and the images were not limited to preconceived compositions. This process allows for the images to tell a more realistic story of the place.

Located in on a secluded site, surrounded by tall pines, this project breaks the typical house plan into three programmatic volumes. This separation allows each room to have maximum access to light and views of the forest. These different volumes are connected by two small programmed passageways, and are unified by a single roof line that is manipulated to allow for a loft space and unique spatial moments that gather light. This singular canopy ties the project together, giving each volume it’s own unique spatial and lighting qualities, while resonating with the surrounding tree canopy.

The massing strategy also allows the project to be built over the course of multiple phases that fit the client’s changing lifestyle, family size, and timeline.
