What you will need: Photoshop…hence the titleA simple image of your building; the sample image was rendered using V-ray. Now with all those elements in a nice new folder start a new Photoshop project and drag them onto your canvas. note: I did not include a few elements seen in the sample image; this was done for time sake since the method I will be demonstrating can be applied to any objects and there is no need to be redundant. Layout note: Some images will have to be duplicated to fit your canvas.

Hillside Luxury: Head Road 1816 by SAOTA This four-bedroom residence is located in the Fresnaye section of Cape Town, South Africa and was designed by the incomparable SAOTA (Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects). Built for a young family, Head Road 1816 provides luxury with optimal indoor/outdoor connectivity. The main living space opens up to the outdoors, optimizing the coastal views and making the area perfect for entertaining. Open the siding glass doors and hop in the pool for a swim. Wood slats are a prominent feature throughout the house, including on these sliding screens that offer privacy and shade. The upper floor houses the private areas of the home, including the bedrooms. That view! I love that they utilized an open floor plan because it makes the house feel extra huge. This cozy seating area sits adjacent to the main staircase. Photos by Adam Letch.

Maracana House by Terra e Tuma Arquitetos Contemporary house designed in 2009 by Terra e Tuma Arquitetos Associados located on the Maracanã Street in São Paulo, Brazil. São Paulo. In this city, which contemporaneity is able to perform the most extraordinary urban contrasts for us, living can reveal an encouraging condition. In search of a place where this could be experienced, the idea of an elementary residence acquires the character of a happening. Thus, as this house decided to silently place itself at the westerly metropolitan meanders, is how it is presented at Maracanã Street. The plans which define the geometry – opaque in grayish materiality, clear in glass surfaces or vibrant on the access mural – shows its presence like a new event around the bucolic surroundings, where curious people wonder this new construction. More than a space, its levels gradually form a path through which outside and inside merge in a proper and continuous shape. Visit Terra e Tuma Arquitetos

MM++ Architects PRIVATE HOUSE Nam Bui photography TUTORIALS A lot of people have been asking me how I create my renderings. Since I am finished with grad school, I decided to develop some tutorials that explain techniques I used throughout architecture school. Many of the techniques only require Sketchup and Photoshop. Others later on will be a little more advanced and involve rendering programs that can be downloaded for free. . Limantos Residence - Sao Paulo, Brazil We are scratching our heads, searching for new words to describe the attraction we have for buildings such as the Limantos residence by Fernanda Marques Arquitetos Associados. The one-family residence of 820 square meters (8,826 sq.ft) is built on three levels on a steep 780 square-meter (8,395 sq.ft.) plot in the upscale neighbourhood of Cidade Jardim (Garden City) in the West Zone of São Paulo, Brazil. What is it that so appeals to us in this? Yes, it is the clean, classic lines, the Miesian harmony between nature and the indoors, the understated elegance of less is more. It is also the achievement of open-space opulence without pretentious pomposity. Maybe it is that the building just seems to belong. To avoid sounding overly pompous ourselves, let’s just say that we wouldn’t mind living in this house. The house consists of 13 rooms: living, dining, kitchen, mezzanine, kids’ playroom, three bedroom suites, powder room, two staff suites, plus laundry and garage.

NATURAL NEIGHBORHOOD Facts Location : Oslo, Norway Year : 2009Client : IT Fornebu AS Program : 70.000 m2 Airport-Re-use Masterplan, including 575 dwellings, offices, and parking Budget : Undisclosed About The development of the area of the former airport of Fornebu can be defined as a semi-urban area inbetween the surrounding villages and Oslo. It is beyond question that the overwhelming beauty and presence of nature defines the unique character of the country. Pedestrian access to the basements is given by new stairs (combined with elevators where needed), that connect to the public space activate these areas. Green bands of public spaces follow the edges of the plateaus on top of the basements, creating public ‘balconies’ overlooking the surrounding area and defining the plateaus as ‘monumental or historic’ elements.A green ring along the boundaries of the site at the higher level (plateau level) is realized, connecting the bands at the plateaus and giving access from all sides of the site.

LONG TAN PARK Facts Location : Liuzhou, China Client : Liuzhou He Jia Real Estate Co. Ltd., Liuzhou, China Program : 200.000 m2 masterplan, 2.700 housing units Budget : Undisclosed About Liuzhou is a city in the south of China located on the edge of an exceptionally beautiful Karst mountain range, protected as a World Heritage site. Locating the 2,700 houses in the valley would harm the potential continuation of the park and avoid the protection of the eroded mountains, whilst also creating homes without views and ventilation. The houses are conceived as individual ‘boxes with a view’ that respect the desire for individuality and that avoid a ‘hotel’ feeling.
