Model of Data Centre Systems for International Bank
Some projects are very hard to explain in just a few lines, and this is definitely one of them. The aim of this model was to provide a visual demonstration of the complex networks involved in data handling and storage for the various services of a major international bank. It was a fully interactive model with the viewer able to press seven different labelled buttons which would then illustrate through complex sequences of moving lights how the data for each banking operation is processed and stored.
Large Housing Development – Scale 1:200
Commissioned by a major national developer, this very large model became the focal point of a sophisticated marketing suite for a large residential development in the south of England. The brown field site included an unusual combination of buildings, combining refurbishment of existing structures with complementary new build elements.
Block Model for Proposed Harbour Redevelopment – Scale 1.750
This model demonstrates how three different levels of detail can be combined to create an informative, attractive but not overly expensive block model. The ordinary off-site context buildings are made with very simplified flat roofs; the landmark off-site buildings are made to a very detailed recognizable level with windows and accurate roof pitches, while the proposed new buildings (which are still only a concept design) are made to crisply detailed level somewhere in between. You should be able to see all this if you click on the image to see a close-up view.
College Redevelopment – Scale 1:250
At 1:250 scale this large full colour, detailed model was used to illustrate the redevelopment proposals for a Devon college site. The landform had to be very accurately to illustrate the changing levels, complex steps and embankments across the site.
White Styled School – Scale 1:500
A white stylized model of a proposed school with accurate land forming to show how the sports pitches and buildings are accommodated on this sloping site. Whilst the general look is stylized, the buildings are made to fairly detailed level.
