    epatripla house | final images

    original attached images and information at the end of the thread
    good luck to everybody


    hallo everyone
    i am also in...

    this project is not a real one, at least not yet...
    in fact it is not a real building but it is a real project.

    so, i have a friend [a real one] who recently asked me to design his house at the countryside in north greece.
    the house should be really small [ about 50 sqm ] and really low budget [ guess most of you are familiar with the economic crisis in greece ] and also made in such way to block electromagnetic radiation as the project site is close to a radar used by the nearby airport.

    as the site is on a slight slope i designed two versions of concrete houses buried from the one side [ in order to block, in a way, the radiation ] , really similar to each other only with diffrent orientation.

    as long as he wasn't able to choose his version, i took the decision to realize both of them through this competition.

    so, i was looking for a way to connect them morphologically and conceptually.
    the thing is that me and this guy used to skateboard together as young students and always dreamed of a skateramp, a dream never come true as there were no money for such a construction and the local authorities in greece never payed attention to such aspects.

    since architectural visualization is more or less what we dream of, i finally connected the two houses with a concrete miniramp, suposing that the one house is for him and the second one for visitors... like me!

    another aspect of this concept is that this guy is a carpenter so most of the furniture have to be handmade by wood

    below you can see the plans of the houses, reference photos of miniramps founded on the internet and the first model of it.

    this project is dedicated to my friend - i really hope that he's going to make that true since he is about to build it almost by himself...

    good luck to everybody!

    epatripla house texturing

    think i'm almost done with main texturing...at least for now.

    using 3dsmax and photoshop so far.
    most of the textures are from the cgtextures website and some other free ones modified in most cases.

    gonna go for object modeling, texturing and placing now...

    have a good day!

    epatripla house objects and light test

    have been making some progress with the shene...

    object modeling is quite simple but i spended some time making a research on grapevines! - [great plant and great product as a result in fact...]

    also made a first camera setup and a light test in order to deal with the vegetation and the concept of the image from now and on...

    here are some pics...

    Very nice idea but i should have done something with the windows at the start of the halfpipe . They seems to close to the halfpipe it can be quite dangerous .

    thanks guys!
    been also thinking about that window, especially if you consider the fact that there is a bed below it!!!
    it will probably be covered with a rack or somethinh like that...
