Riverfront Park In A Wood Model

This was an interesting project. Usually, clients ask for wood models because that is what they are used to building in school. They think it might be easier or cheaper in wood. The reality is that wood is a harder material to work with for a professional model shop. East West Partners – the developers of the Riverfront Park area in Denver wanted a wood model to show off a different style in there new marketing center. We have built dozens of a model for this client over the years. They have all been made using different plastics with many lighting effects they are also highly detailed and very precise. So when they asked for a wood look in this model it was for style reasons. They did not want to lose the detail or effectiveness of the sales tool.

We went to work using many different types of wood surfaces and many layers of etched patterns. We created a unique look that grabs the viewer attention as soon as they see it. This model highlights the building that East West has developed and keeps the surrounding building in a neutral color with less detail. I personally have never been a fan of building models with wood but this project has changed my mind. It is a very welcoming and organic material that – if done right – can be a very effective marketing tool.

Data Center Model

Some models are a combination of architecture and engineering. One such project we recently completed is the Winchester Data Center in Kansas City. This model is used to give tours of this highly sensitive and high-security facility. The building is unique in that is house secure computer servers. the wiring around all the roofs is actually a continuous lighting rod mitigate any hint of an electrical surge.

Visiting this building is no easy task. After your car search, you must go through two separate barrier systems to gain access. Since VIP visitors are only allowed limited access the model is the first stop.

Numerous lighting events show off the data streams, the server locations, and the internal computer systems. The main center roof section rises up to show the lower level systems. external underground fuel tanks also light up to demonstrate their independence to the grid. We had to create some brand new lighting systems to accomplish all that was needed.

Scale Models of Resorts | Colorado Grand | Interactive Model

Controlled interactive model

Breckenridge Colorado has some of the best ski terrain available. The Colorado Grand is a timeshare resort destination in Breckenridge which needed an exiting display to help generate sales. The Colorado Grand came to Archetype 3D to build an exterior model to show off both summer and winter activities along with a very interactive lighting system.

One of our challenges on this project was to give the sales staff complete control over the complex model lighting. We place individual LED’s into each unit. We had many events that our client wanted to feature including phasing, time share weeks, pet friendly units, units with vaulted ceilings. one bedroom, two bedroom . . . the list goes on. In order to provide them with all the control that they requested we programmed a tablet which connected to the model via Bluetooth. Each individual unit could be lit up separately along with all of the many categories. Marketing is not just about winter sports which is why the model also featured warm weather actives including an alpine slide. and human maze.
