Somewhere on the Volga River

Archviz of one of my projects, done in collaboration with KLM-Art Co. (Russia, Krasnoyarsk-Moscow). The project was created for promotional purposes, the main task was to convey a feeling of comfort, which give the house of laminated veneer lumber. The house is called the Volga; Volga is the main Russian river, the artery of the whole country.



In this project I was inspired by the traditions of Russian nature and Russian construction. Glued laminated timber, wood. I used a gray wall with white inclusions – is allowed to focus on nature, emphasizing the volume of the building with light. Therefore, I have chosen to render the twilight.


Autodesk 3ds Max, Corona Renderer, Eyeon Fusion, Adobe Photoshop, Nik Software Color Efex Pro.
CAD model was taken as a basis; Then I used 3ds Max & Corona Renderer for raw render, and then – post-production in Fusion & Photoshop – thats my method.

I learned new ways of expression and depth of the atmosphere, because before I did mostly midday archviz. It’s a great experience – twilight blur the boundaries between day and night, and the architecture is starting to show its full volume.
