deDraft's DA Residence by James Whitaker

I just realised that I haven't posted any photographs recently on my blog. So here's a lovely project by deDraft that I photographed back in the autumn.

Grant and his team have got off to a great start to 2018 with this project being shortlisted for this year's Don't Move, Improve awards. My fingers are crossed for them (and my other friends in contention, but mostly for deDraft).

Inner Working by James Whitaker

This visualisation is of a proposed 8 storey office building, with retail and coffee shop at ground floor. You can compare the final image with the computer model below to see what we did in 3D. I prefer to create as much of the image as possible in the 3D model and keep photoshop work to a minimum. Partly that's just how I like to work, but it has the giant benefit that it increases our ability to adopt client changes as late into the process as possible, and minimise the impact of that one final tweak to the design.

Folding House by James Whitaker

I recently photographed this rather nice extension by Thomas & Spiers Architects in south west London. I believe the budget for the construction was relatively modest, yet they've crafted a really lovely space with a calm quality of light in it. I would happily move in!

This visualisation is of a new development in Elephant and Castle by A Zero Architects. There will be a nursery at ground floor with three town houses above. Construction work is due to start in Autumn 2015.
