Architectural Models 1:500 Scale (2mm represents 1 metre)
Cardiff Bay Marketing Model
Built to illustrate the proposed scale of several major development areas in a prime waterside location, this model used illumination to highlight the key sites in the project. Each of 11 different plots can be illuminated individually at the touch of a button
Wales Millennium Centre Site Model
This much-travelled model was set up at every press event related to Wales new Opera House/Arts Centre in the heart of Cardiff Bay. Basically a block site model, it used limited detail and subdued colours to make it more visually appealing to the public.
Site Model for New Hospital
Compact and easily portable, this model gives a good overview of the site layout and the high level of detail in the buildings is a very authentic representation of the proposed materials and finishes
International Sports Village
International Sports Village – A white stylized, 1:500 scale site model for the proposed international sports village in Cardiff Bay. The client wanted to combine wood, Perspex, white surfaces and bright illumination in what is essentially a concept model with the theme "Snow, ice, fire, water".
A surprisingly detailed appearance at this small scale is achieved by applying much of the elevation treatments as rub down transfers. A useful and effective technique for certain types of schemes.
Manufacturing Plant Site Model
This model is displayed in the reception area of an international company's Research & Manufacturing premises. Its main purpose is as an orientation tool for new staff and visitors to the site.
Small Scale Housing Model
This unusually small scale for a housing development marketing model was chosen due to limited space and a tight budget. Although it lacks the detail of the larger scales it does convey a clear, easy to understand overview of this large, spread-out site. If you enlarge the image you’ll see that a surprising level of detail can be shown and we’ve even created accurate topography with stepped roof levels and sloping contours, etc.
