Residential Design and Visualization: Concept Development

All great homes start with a great concept. Residential designs take inspiration from the client, existing architecture, and the designer’s imagination. This course shows how to take those ideas and incorporate them into presentation materials for a single family home. Instructor George Maestri progresses through a series of simple, easy-to-follow steps, using low-cost 2D and 3D software such as SketchUp. He introduces techniques for performing research; sketching your ideas; creating massing studies; blocking out a floor plan with walls, windows, and doors; and adding exterior and interior details. Finally, learn to create simple images, videos, and even a virtual reality walkthrough of your concepts that will help clients understand the results.
