Azuma House Archviz

Haha, I just saw a youtube video about that house… very nice :slight_smile:

hi looks great . I got a question are you using tessellation for any of the textures or is it all normal maps . thanks :slight_smile:

normal maps :slight_smile:

Excellent work!

Beautiful scene!

Thanks guys! Looking at the scene now I think the end result could’ve been a little colder.

I disagree. I think you’ve got it spot on. I think the warmth is a nice contrast to the typical cold feeling of concrete.

Thanks for the info above about the scene. Can I ask for a little more info on how you did the vegetation again? You mentioned it being a model from 3dsky, which i was able to find a few, but when I try to add a second uv channel using steamroller 3ds max comes to a halt with such a high poly count.

Also, what’s your software pipeline (i.e., rhino, 3dsmax, sketchup, etc.)?

Thanks again!

I am always preparing models in Cinema4D with built in uv tools.
Unwrapping Uv’s for the ivy also took a little bit of time. I didn’t touch my PC for half an hour after unwrapping started, but in the end the second channel came out quite nice.

Great project! Can you be more specific about what you mean by “mix textures with different scales”?


very nice :slight_smile:

could you tell us your lighting workflow and what are the lightmass settings both in editor and .ini file? 4.11 or 4.10 version?

The project was done in 4.11 preview. Actually there was no need to change settings in ini files. My world settings were SLLS=0.5, ILQ=6

This is WHY I like UE4 for architectural rendering and animation. The material rendition is exceptional and so is the realistic quality of light. My only complaint? The concrete doesn’t mimic Ando’s and Ando is all about his concrete:



Excellent work!!

That raw concrete gives not a cosy feeling, rather like a WW2 bunker. Would you personally like to live in a bunker?

I love that style of architecture!

That is pretty **** amazing right there

well done! im working on detailed koshino house with that so called “ando concrete” all around. it’s really pain in the *** to tile them properly on different walls to look seamless. maybe he choose that way because of that.

i also like to know what he means about that mix thingy.

I think he just meant a blend material… and scale each texture separately to achieve the look he want… Nothing very complex!

Texturecoordinate node (change tiling = scale)

Great work. Love the lighting!
