Extruded House in Blender
What is the best way to practice your architectural visualization skills? The best approach to develop your skills with Blender and become more familiar with an architectural workflow is with practice. If you don't have your design to create a visualization, use existing projects as a base.
Here is an example of a project that uses an existing design as a practice. The digital artist Paweł Pęcherzewski choose the award winner Extruded House from MCK Architecture and manage to create the full project in Blender.
For this particular render, he didn't pick Eevee for real-time. Instead, he went with a more traditional approach with Cycles.
The results are impressive and show what you can achieve with time and practice. One of the challenges for this particular type of project is that you must work with a mix of interiors and exteriors due to the design.
Since it is an open space with no blinds or curtains, you will have to show the exterior on any interior render.
Using Blender for architecture
Do you want to use Blender for architecture or render your projects using Cycles or Eevee? We have three books available that could help you!
They cover the use of Blender for producing architectural content and also all information you need to render projects in real-time:
- Blender 2.8 for architecture: Modeling and rendering with Eevee and Cycles
- Blender 2.8 parametric modeling: Drivers, Custom Properties, and Shape Keys for 3D modeling
- Blender 2.9: The beginner's guide
- Blender Eevee: The guide to real-time rendering with Blender 2.8
You can get them in both digital and paperback formats. By ordering those books, you will not only improve your skills with Blender for architecture but also support Blender 3D Architect.
