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.

Various Shopping Malls

We have models done for shopping mall throughout the country. Some are simple forms for city council planning meetings. Others are more elaborate sales models to attract vendors as tenants. The models can range in cost quite a bit depending on the audience and the amount of detail required.

Shopping Signs

Signs are marketing tools and models of signs help to sell the elaborate designs needed to help sell the shopping experience. These model not only prove out the concepts but they also allow cities to see the elegance and style that the designer intends.

The Mills Corporation is known for creating elaborate entrances for there mall developments. Archetype 3D was commissioned to build a series of models to show many of the different styles that they design.
