Group Five Buildings for The Clove Town Center by Built4ever Group Five Buildings for The Clove Town Center by Built4ever
This should be the final front elevation sketch for the "Group Five" buildings in "The Clove" town design (see gallery.) I have the floor plans done and I'm just finishing up details on the side elevations/cross sections. The cafe is actually at an angle to the other three, if you look at the overall layout of the ground plan submitted recently. Architectural style based loosely on Tuscany and other hill town architecture, but also has hints of northern Europe (stepped facade of number three,) and the U.S. (front porch of number one.) Balconies influenced by Spanish and Spanish-colonial (American) architecture.

Technique: drawn in scale 1/16" = one foot on white vellum over graph paper, mostly using "hard" pencils with sharp points such as 2H and 4H. Then I scan, darken a bit, clean it up, and label it. As usual, completely drawn by hand.

So much detail!

And exceedingly difficult and time-consuming to model in 3D...

Sounds like you have more fun with the pencil than with the computer...

There have been many times when I wanted to pitch the 'puter out the window. I don't get angry with my pencils.

Very, very nice!! Everything fits and is context. I see a lot of Tuscan elements and the Dutch/German elements blend it very well.

Yes! Thanks, that's what I'm trying to do. All built, the colors and materials would unify the styles even more. Wait til you see the bizarre roof I'm cooking up for number three! Side views coming later...I agree with and took your advice on the other group (in the gallery) with the problematic small storefront that looked out of place, and I moved it to another location, directly across from these.

That's wonderful moving the problematic storefront to a better location, and still keeping it as part of the whole project. Did you re-sketch that group of buildings?
I am intreagued by what you're teasing me with regarding the unique roof you are coming up with.. I wonder if it's buildable??
