Links To My Semi Design!

Whilst browsing I came across this site:

How surprised I was to find a sketchup model by yours truly posted on this site. It is my semi design that I posted onto my architecture blog.

I have since left a comment on this site and have exchanged emails with the editor (who is one Stefan Geens and lives in Stockholm, Sweden)

I am overjoyed about this as I never would have expected for this to happen!!
Since he posted it on his site I have had over 140 visitors to my arch blog in less than a week!!!
Great exposure for my archi blog!

I'm now going to try post more on my blog since I now have a much broader audience.

Concept and Idea Development

This was the process I took for my design development. I worked with many models, of varying sizes, exploring massing, windows, light and construction methods.

My quick initial concept model for my semi design.

A 1:100 cardboard model exploring massing and three-dimentionality.

Exploring light and the window configuration.

Exploring the facade configuration.

Exploring and experimenting with the concrete frame skeleton.
