Ranch : Perspectives

These are the beginning renderings I created. Using a ban through the center of the living room into the dining, I interlocked these spaces by keeping the same use of materials. Playing with Materials from soft to hard and maintaining the same color also helped me achieve my goal of intelocking each space.

With this model I looked at how light played with the negative and positive space.

Using this model to show color, I decided to show how the color would remain the same yet be used in a different way.

In the process of coming up with a concept for the Ranch house, we did a series of charettes. When considering, material, light and color, i planned on being consistent with the materials and interlocking them from room to room.

Nurb Gallery : Flat Gallery

This is an art gallery that I designed using a new computer software. Rhino was a challenge to work with, however, i feel that it gave me an opportunity to try modeling different things in 3D modeling softwares. In the end, I am very happy with the final outcome.

Ranch : Parti

After analyzing my painting I then took into consideration a graphic that I would want to use to move forward in my project. The first set of Parti's 1-7 were beginning to look to much like the original painting so I then decided to drift away from what the artwork "looks like" and abstract it into what I thought described my concept. What I concluded with was that each space will contain something different, but at the same time one specific element in the previous room will tie into the next. This will then unify the previous space with the next, creating an interlocking theme throughout the house.

Ranch : Inspiration : Gallery


"An abstraction surrealist who was heavily influenced by jazz music of 1940's and 1950's. He translated syncopation and rhythm into a visual for, often using interlocking lines to create architectonic compositions. "

From this image we are to take inspiration for the Ranch design.

Ranch : Precedent Analysis

The next project consist of the redesign of a Ranch. This week we have began constructing the construction documents for this house, and investigating the differences between the previous "bungalow style" and "ranch style". This are some images that we were taken at a Ranch House in Greensboro, NC. I really enjoyed all the variety of furniture the house had as well as the unity it created.

Bungalow : Illusion Phase 2

After a process of design, the next to follow is hand renderings. Time consuming, dedication, no sleep and absolutely concentration. When working on these hand drawings one of the most key factors to keep in mind are the materials and shadows that the lighting may project.
