    Single Pole House/ Tree house

    ABOUT THE PROJECT

    For the project I used AutoCAD (modelling), 3dsMAX (Modelling & rendering with MentalRay), Photoshop (Postproduction)

    REASON/

    Increasing population of present cities caused rapid decline in their attractiveness. Both, better road infrastructure and wide variety of public transport encourage us to move out to the more peaceful and quiet greenbelts. However, did we ever thought how it is possible that there always is a place for another new estate?

    Sometimes we forget that deforestation is the only way to expand in a traditional way. Like a virus we are taking territories that do not belong to us. We want to be “close” to nature and in the same time we are the ones responsible for its devastation. This project is an example of the solution to this problem.

    INSPIRATION/IDEAS/

    The main inspiration for this project was a functionality and structure of a tree. Studyinging its nature, allowed me to come up with ideas and solutions to create a completely self-sufficient construction.

    For most of the animals, trees are the best natural shelters against predators, moisture and weather. Coincidence? We must remember that in nature nothing is accidental. Everything has a reason and a purpose. It all balance out just like this project.

    SOLUTION/

    The aim was to design a structure that would not have any footprint on the nature. Fully functional interior was intended for two people and if needed, in special occasions could be extended up to four. In order to provide as much space as possible alternating threads stairs were implemented. This allowed fitting spacious interior into a compact and light form. Construction divides into 4 levels with a clear different functional program on each floor. This well equipped structure is a balance of comfortableness and practicality.

    The idea



    First of all I started by making precise model in AutoCAD together with construction which I wanted to show in different renders of this project. I also made some sketches and organize the interior space to make it as efficient as possible.

    Secondly I started modeling details in 3dsMAX such as zink elevation and interior. I used furniture for interior from the companies that designed them. (for example Tom Dixon free liblary)

    adding shadow for the top volumetric light (changing exposure level of the part of the picture)

    and changing the interior color by adding yellowish mask (overlay layer and screen)

    Very important step od adding realistic reflections. Using part of the background picture you have to manipulate its position and lightness. Then by making three different layers lith different transparency and layer type (lighten, screen, Color dodge) I addiasted them over the window
