Conservatory Sunroom Model – Scale 1:15
Made for a company that specializes in high quality conservatories, this detailed model needed to reflect the product’s elegant design and high levels of finish (inside and out). The model’s primary purpose was to act as an eye catching display at shows and exhibitions to help attract potential customers to the company’s stand. To give it a bit of extra “sparkle” we incorporated battery powered working interior lights which you can see in one of the inset pics. As a further complication, the model also had to be made strong enough to withstand conventional courier delivery to central Scotland where the company is based. The client was really pleased with the finished model and is currently planning further models of some of their other designs.
Floor Plan Model – 1:50 Scale
The client, one of the country’s biggest national home builders, asked us to create a model that showed the internal layout of a typical floor plan so that prospective purchasers could visualize the room spaces in the different apartment designs. This 1:50 scale model uses clean, white finishes and stylized representation of furniture/fittings to give the viewer an instant understanding of room usage and spatial organization.
Small Scale Housing Model – Scale 1:500
This is an unusually small scale for a housing development marketing model – 1:200 scale or 1:250 is more typical for this type of project. This small scale was chosen due to limited space and a tight budget. But although this lacks the detail of the larger scales it does convey a clear easy to understand overview of this large spread out site. The grey blocks represent existing buildings that are not part of the development. If you click on the Enlarge Image feature on the picture, you’ll see that a surprising level of detail is shown (even though the house elevations are only about 14mm high) and we’ve even created accurate topography with stepped roof levels and sloping contours, etc.
Housing Marketing Model – Scale 1:150
October was a busy month and some of the projects are still ongoing – here’s one we did finish though, a marketing model for one of the UK’s largest house builders. We produced a similar model for the same company back in August and they were very pleased with the results. This one has been extremely well received as well. At 1:150 it’s at a slightly larger scale than normal for these sort of developments. This was because the client wanted to ensure that prospective buyers could easily appreciate the carefully designed levels and contours of this complex sloping site.
Housing Development Model – Scale 1:200
Commissioned for use in an on-site Sales Office, this is a typical marketing model for a new housing development. We have produced scores of these models over the years and this particular example was for one of the UK’s largest house builders. They liked it so much they’ve now asked us to quote for another.
