This week I returned to the Mediterranean style design, and pretty much followed the same procedure as with the traditional style I worked on last week. The plan and envelope was more or less fixed in week 5, I just needed to follow through with the finer details, fix the window style, the eaves details, roof tiles and ridges, the garage doors and external steps, most of which follow some precedent for the building type, so are not really hard design decisions to make, but they can be quite fiddly to model. The roof pantiles were modelled with displacement mapping, which is a lot easier than trying to solid model individual tiles.
The rather generic site layout was further tweaked to better suit the building, and 3D entourage added to give the images a photo-real look, with palm trees giving a feel of a Mediterranean setting.
Not much more to say on this one, but I hope the images speak from themselves. Let me know what you think in the comments
