the goal of this project was to create a villa model to sell waterfront properties
in Drachten on the east side of the Drait River in the Netherlands. The design
centers on a Scandinavian theme and features water that surrounds the villa
on the south and west sides, which can be seen upon entering the villa.
The hallway and glass roof gives the villa a spacious feel. The design also
integrates the boathouse into the architecture of the villa and a veranda that
faces the west side of the waterfront provides an intimate feeling. The design
team used MicroStation to build a 3D model to create visualizations, which
enhanced the team’s ability to collaborate. The design team successfully
delivered the project, largely due to its use of visuals and animation.
