Y'know, for the years I've been following this site I never thought it had much of a genuine draw for architects (apart from us armchair architects).

But holy cow. Some of the designs that are showcased here are AMAZING. I love the level of detail that went into the homes that Plinko designed.

It is so great that you guys are sharing your work with us. Thanks.

Architectural Illustrations

Very nice work on this thread!

I used to be an Architect, but I left the biz to be an illustrator. With the economy in the tank for the past couple years, I haven't done as much architectural work as I'd like, but I've been keeping busy with some technical illustrations and infographic work.

My renderings are kind of a "soft-style", that is to say, non photo-realistic. My work is here:

Thanks!

Wow, I didnt know this thread existed. Great work everyone, I always wondered exactly what some of us did in the design realm. I have been designing high end residential work here in Texas for 15 years. I enjoy working in many different styles, and lately have enjoyed mixing the traditional with the contemporary.

This project was built on a difficult lot, 65' of drop front to back. Of course the result of the design is a reflection of client wants. As with some of the discussion on Mcmansions go, of course thats a bit of a derogatory term. Many of these true custom homes are built to very high standards with very good quality materials. I would imagine the term Mcmansion more to describe large tract houses with poorly done details. Saying that, there is some phenomenal work being done all over the country, loved your house Plinko btw, very nice.
This home is built with native Texas limestone, custom cast stone, real clay brick & chimney pots, slate roofing, and real copper accents gutters/finials etc.

Wine Cellar - cant see it but its sub grade with a main groin vaulted room and two tunnels that lead to smaller rooms.

I'm a student, so this isn't real. It's a little warming hut for a ski resort in Montana. Concrete study stuff.

Very cool! I assume that it was modeled in Sketchup. But, what did you use to render it or is that just a print screen of the model with applied materials and then everything else photoshopped?

I don't frequent these parts of the forum that often. So, please message me.

Austin, Texas - Perfect Canvas

A project I designed and built in 2004 overlooking Lake Travis. About 3200 sf. on three floors. Looking at the photos, I am reminded of how the spaces constantly change and shift as one moves through them - a real 'everything AND the kitchen sink' project. Also, the light was remarkable. With over 60 windows and 13 glass doors, the house really took in its paradisic surroundings and the sun and shadows shift all day long. Design influences ranged from Christopher Alexander's 'A Pattern Language' and Charles Moore, to old Tuscan styles, to urban loft, historic Texas/San Antonio, and even Chinatown shop fronts and Oil Derrick iconography! My first house design and hopefully not my last. A bit busy and even kitschy, but that was the plan...

These are great. Love the cor-ten wall.

I'm keeping busy these days doing heavy industrial work. Not sexy architecture...definitely an exercise in 'form follows function'

Interesting stuff! I would have to guess that most real estate-related professionally employed people on this site are in the field of architecture/planning.

I'm glad to be a part of the forum with so many talented individuals.

trueviking: the buildings turned out good. My only complaint is that from the one photo the brick pavers seem kind of Home Depotish, but both of the buildings turned out really well and any city would be fortunate to have them.
