Your Own Personal Work
 
It's really fun (and sometimes not so fun) to hear the various perspectives of people around the forum, but it might help to understand people more if we see the sort of design work that they actually do.

That said, I'll be the first to throw mine out there! A lot of you will probably hate it, because I design traditional architecture and urbanism, but whatever:)

Anyone else have blogs, sites, or photos! Share them here!

I'm all for the traditional stuff so thanks for sharing! =)
Unfortunately I'm in IT and not directly involved with the stuff on this site. Just an interest.

Nice work Santhelima! We need more of you.

Cirrus Oct 28, 2010 8:07 PM

Very nice. It was clear you have ties to Notre Dame even before reading the intro.

I'm a transportation planner by day. Most of my job involves deciding what to build and then trying to find money to build it, and it is always done as part of a group. I don't sit at a desk drawing plans; I sit in meetings making decisions about what plans should say. Here are a couple of things I've worked on recently (all links are pdfs):

Grant application for a large expansion of Washington's bikesharing program

I-66 Transit/TDM Study

Then of course there's my personal blog, BeyondDC, which is about urbanism in general. As an extension of BeyondDC I write for the Washington Post and Greater Greater Washington.

Samthelima Oct 28, 2010 10:57 PM

Cirrus, I've definitely seen BeyondDC before (love DC), and there's always something interesting to read there. Actually, only two of the projects on my site are from my time at Notre Dame (where I am studying primarily urban design). Most of them are from my time at Judson University. I haven't posted any built projects, because they belong to firms that I have worked for.

Those are great!


I'd like to post more of the work I do unfortunately much of it is confidential as of right now. I'd have to clear the designs and renderings with my company for a public posting :(

M.K. Oct 29, 2010 11:51 AM

Of course it is not my preference style, but not laugh at all. When decent, i think all is valid. I tend to like those modernist futurism structural simple well thought projects and not rubbish Rococcos or old colonial styles, but we know those cost more, so sometimes a valid not so expensive old-school goes. I don't like much old and decandent things, but when the construction is new and very good mantained, then does not matter much in which style it is. Those are good for libraries, small public buildings, big houses, all valid. I think you make the diagrams in gauche very nice. You can even upload them as diagrams with your talent. I am, unfortunate, not in any artist activity today, but if I had the chance to do like yours, would not think twice, would even make me pleasure. Be happy you have this lovely work.

plinko Oct 29, 2010 10:03 PM

I've always hesitated to show any of my work on the forum because generally I design very high end large houses for very wealthy people. Most are traditional, a few contemporaries. Most large single family homes are derided on this forum as wasteful and stupid because they aren't 'in the city' (or simply characterized as McMansions).

Nonetheless, maybe I should dig up some photos and renderings.

Rizzo Oct 29, 2010 10:52 PM

Edit.........

M.K. Oct 30, 2010 10:23 PM

@ Plinko, for sure most here in this forum never had an opportunity to live close in the houses you draw, so show us, because I am sure people would continue to be jealous. Most of time critics come when is an inside passive answer of not can affording some day, if had the chance, droping immediately the No, without even immagining the other reasons' side. So you do what your clients ask to be done, then ok, decent big to be lived. Better than the poors' quality, for sure. I am the one who can't afford your houses, but give everytime a :tup: .

uaarkson Oct 31, 2010 4:17 PM

I'm pretty sure no one here is jealous of people living in McMansions.

Zerton Oct 31, 2010 8:13 PM

Your paintings are really great. You're right, not my particular style but they still look like really nice buildings

I have to say i really like most of your work. I am more of a modernist and cityplaner, but i like traditional works like yours. Thats the only way historistic buildings should be build. I hate those semimodernist buildings with pseudohistoric elements spreading in so many cities around the world.

Heres a thread with some of my works...

Hope you like!

Cirrus Nov 2, 2010 4:33 PM

If you're designing each one individually then they're not McMansions; they're regular mansions.

And I don't want to live in Samthelima's habitat for humanity house either, but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate it as architecture.

If you're proud of your work, post it.

plinko Nov 2, 2010 7:15 PM

These are some photos of one of my recently completed designs in Montecito, CA. The house is 5 bedrooms + pool cabana on an acre of land. 100% solar electric, 100% solar hot water (including pool heating), 100% rainwater capture. Would have qualified for LEED silver, but the client wasn't interested in the cost of the paperwork.

I was generally pleased with the end product of this design. There are a few things I might have done differently.

As far as McMansions go, that is quite good. The interior is stunning and the outside pool building is very well designed.

Please explain exactly how this is a 'McMansion'?

Wrightguy0 Nov 2, 2010 7:34 PM

that's no mcmansion, that's a genuine estate, it's not tacky, or ovedone, it's simple and elegant and is low impact, also a Mcmansion is meant to be seen, this one looks to be nestled in with the surrounding countryside, probably at the end of a driveway and behind a gate

Edit: I also like the slight art deco influence on the doors and windows, especially in the media room

photoLith Nov 2, 2010 8:09 PM

Sorry, its not a McMansion.

i_am_hydrogen Nov 2, 2010 8:14 PM

That's very impressive, plinko. I'm going to sticky this thread in the hopes that others will be encouraged to share their work.

plinko Nov 2, 2010 8:28 PM

I'll post one more for now. This is a soon to be under construction contemporary home in Ventura, CA. The house sits on a very narrow lot that cascades down a canyon. The most interesting part about this house is that it is essentially designed upsidedown in terms of program. While most of the house faces the canyon, the topmost floor (the Entry Floor) has views back down towards the ocean and the Ventura pier.

The lowest level (the Deck Level) has a home theater, a game room, a covered outdoor bar and eating area, and an infinity edge pool.

Cool pool idea, but there doesn't appear to be any basement windows, unless the bottom habitable floor is at the pool level.

Cirrus Nov 2, 2010 9:34 PM

Your stuff is interesting, proportional, and contextually sensitive. You should be proud of it.

Flamesrule Nov 2, 2010 11:21 PM

Very, Very impressive Plinko! I really like the last house that you just posted.

rockyi Nov 4, 2010 1:36 AM

Nice work, guys.

Matthew Nov 4, 2010 3:09 AM

I love the first house Plinko! When I'm ready for a new house, I should contact you about designing it. (It would have to be half this size though) I love the windows in the first house. Those are amazing. I'm always attracted to the windows first. The Victorian design reminds me of Biltmore Village, which I love! The kitchen, those doors, the flooring choices, I don't know where to start in telling you how beautiful it is.

trueviking Nov 12, 2010 3:22 AM

there are two buildings that i designed under construction right now....

the first is called the 'family centre' and is a multi purpose pavilion in winnipeg's main city park.

This is a really cool thread! You guys are all very talented!

I hope its ok I post something of mine, because it is nothing that has or ever will be built, but is instead merely something I did for fun. (I start college next year)

This is meant to be an alternative to the many faux historic homes springing up all around Chicago. I wanted to design something very modern looking but at the same time could fit in well with Chicago's historic neighborhoods. I tried doing this by stressing the horizontal and using dark brick as the main material in the front. Anything that is not brick is prefab concrete (I think - i'm not sure what exactly its called).

http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4145/...216c6d54_b.jpg

The only reason the living room is so small is because I ran out of paper space. And yes, it did take nearly forever to draw the bricks. :)

trueviking Nov 16, 2010 3:29 AM

Very nice. Good luck in college!

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.:tup:

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!

SLO Jan 12, 2011 2:04 AM

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.
