Free architectural scene using Blender and Cycles (Italian Flat)
As an effort to give examples of real projects that use Blender, we have a rich list of downloadable files available from the Foundation website. There you can grab the latest version of Blender and also some great examples with full access to settings and assets. That way, it is possible to open and study each project to see how they work.
There are many interesting options related to architecture like:
- Barcelona Pavillon
- Lone Monk
Besides those files, we also have a new addition to the list! From architect and artist Flavio Della Tommasa, you can download a scene called “Italian Flat”. Look for the file in the Cycles section.
From the file, you can look at settings and even append some of the assets in other projects as long as you give credit to the author. Notice that this file uses a CC-BY license, and you must mention the author in any derivate work.
If you were looking to learn Blender for interior render, it is a great opportunity to start from a high-quality example.
