Expansion

So, in my professional life, I’m a little space hungry. Especially horizontal surfaces, I don’t think it’s possible for me to have enough of them. This is a tad bit ironic, when compared to my personal life where my needs are rather modest. So here in the studio, I had a lofted mezzanine office space and a single, albeit large, drafting table for all my designing and officing needs. And it really didn’t cut it. So I’ve been working on building out an extension to the original mezzanine accessible via catwalk. I love catwalks. More broadly speaking, I love aerial space of all sort. The build-out is almost complete and here’s the result, in all of it’s 14 foot long desk AND drafting table to boot glory:

3D

It’s been a while since I’ve really had a chance to dive into 3-D design tools for architecture. I switched software platforms from what I used to use (formZ) to 3DS Max Design 2009. It’s a *very* powerful 3D package, especially when it comes to it’s photorealistic rendering capabilities. It’s also a *very* deep and complex program and it’s taking me a bit to get up to speed. This is an early render for a project I’m working on.
