Chiswick Apartments

In January 2016 I was thrown into the task of creating designs for 6 apartments in Chiswick for our sister company Edward Sunderland Ltd, of  which I’m creative director.

Simple, perhaps, but complex, as we were also adapting and designing the building at the same time. 6 kitchens, 11 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms and 6 open plan living spaces all needed to be designed individually to enable purchasers to see the  potential in each apartment.

I needed floor plans, room data sheets, 3D views as well as high resolution CGI images of each room I use a software called ARCHLine.XP from CadLine Ltd., on all my projects, and to various degrees of finish, some simple some complex, but these needed to be so much better. There was only one way to do this in the time, Call CadLine and order a CGI service!

It was to be 6 months work.
For a better understanding of how  this could be done, I needed the experts.
Erika Harosi, Sales and Product manager of CadLine Ltd. came to my aid once again, and we worked out a detailed programme on how this would work for both of us. I needed to design each room individually, creating mood boards, choosing fabrics, furniture styles lighting wall coverings, and create folders of each of these items. The mood board presented the layout, and a document listing each item and its web link was created, providing as much information as possible was crucial, and being adaptable was necessary! 

With Erika based in Budapest Skype played a crucial role in its progress, and we would often be chatting, sharing screens reviewing and changing late into the evening.

The apartments were on 3 floors, 2 on each so we worked from the ground upwards, using DWG files from our architects the floors were created, and at the same time the 3D model was built, it’s an ingenious piece of software. Erika worked tirelessly, and not for the first time, I use this service regularly, and the first floor started to appear. Once I was happy with each room, the 3D was signed off, and it was then handed over to Kristina Harosi to convert the drawings into Hi Res CGI, adding further nuances and details to the images. It was a collaboration that in my opinion produced exceptional work.

Over  the next few months we worked through each room in each apartment getting ready for marketing, sales and of course website promotions. By the end of CadLine Ltd. had created dozens of drawings, elevations, and projections as well as over 50 CGI renditions each of which took 8 hours to process such was the detail. It was by far the largest project we have done together and not only did it run smoothly and on schedule, but the finished results were beyond our expectations. Posting on sales agents websites was the aim to sell off plan, as the building will only start to appear in August.
