Finish this House Entries

Very nice. Did you actually do that with SketchUp for Schools?

Believe it or not, I’m emotionally attached to Sketchup make 2017 haha

As an architect, I’ve used the desktop program since 2003 or so, but at a teacher, I’ve used both SketchUp for Schools and Make 2017. I prefer the latter and have to use it for Match Photo since SUfS won’t do it.

I was lucky enough to work on a film project in Mauritius a couple of years ago. It was this cliff that inspired my contest entry. Not sure you’d get planning permission but it would be worth asking for the view

This is my first attempt. I kept it simple and clean. I’ll make another try without using any materials from 3DWH

Hola!
I decided to create this tropical house representing the caribbean architecture from Colombia, This idea of beach house would be located in Palomino, Guajira, Colombia (of course). I wanted to capture the feeling of being in a hostel in front of the caribean sea, the facade made completely of folding wood elements wich uncover the inside of the house creating this 360° view around the beach, and the colors and textures evoke peace and relaxation, and represent the caribean lifestyle.

Here are some views from the model

Edit, here is the link, https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/model/ef4367b5-66c1-4f82-9366-29936c645d52/Rock-Arch-House

I can’t get the warehouse to come up on Edge on this machine, but it will come up on Chrome on my laptop. Strange.

I opted to put the structure under a natural rock arch the house is built against a cave feature essentially gaining an extra room, in which I have only placed a hot tub.

I also bumped the stair landing outside the structure into a little indent in the rock. Within that indent is a waterfall and pool feature drained by a creek that passes under the structure to the lake behind the home. The creek and its bed are revealed through a series of three grates in the floor.

I tried to incorporate the motif from the windows into various elements of the home and its furnishings. I hope you like it and I hope I’m not breaking any rules. I did add a column of glass block to close off a sliver left between the structure and the rock at the stairwell, let me know if that was a no-no and I’ll fix it.

The texture I use in the waterfall came from a model by Tito Renarto and the logs in the fireplace are a model by Peter Newberry. I was using some other things but ended up swapping them out for my own creations.

Version 1.0 - still very much a work in progress, with the interior fitout and furnishings to be finished, plus landscaping to be done. Biggest problem has been my habit of constantly changing my mind with the internal floorplan!

Bravo on an excellent model and render. I’d encourage you to check out the ICAA… the Institute of Classical Architecture and Art. I’m a member in the Rocky Mountain chapter and there are chapters all over the country… and you don’t have to solely focus on Classicism to be a member!

This retreat focuses on the communal areas of the residence. The house has lots of windows and open spaces to enjoy the surrounding and the company of people.

Shades of Gilligan’s Island. Nice

Fun project, here’s my idea…

564 Artemis. Inspired by the Teesdale House by Erno Goldfinger, is a modern retreat with warm lines designed to provide a peaceful escape from the fast ever threatening world…



…model to big to upload to the warehouse so I probably don’t qualify to “win” but the reward’s in the work, right?!

Enjoy
