GROUND FLOOR PLAN DESIGN PROCESS The overall impression of the brand from visiting the Conran Chelsea store was clean lines, block colours and a mid modernist style. Display areas were also a key feature. The aim for the visuals was to reflect the brand and the direction chosen was to create a hand drawn, sketchy style. The sections were used as a main visual so many elements were drawn in Autocad then rendered in Photoshop. A basic Revit model with a walk-through was created. A Sketchup model also made and visuals taken from the model were rendered using the Dennis Technique, creating a watercolour image with sketched line detailing. Not to Scale These visuals allow the colour blocking and clean lines within the design to standout.
