Model Making is a specialist art of building 3D representations of a new design scheme. Model Making ranges from large scale tower blocks showing specific design details to small scale masterplan models showing entire cities.

Our portfolio includes 3D representation of newly designed scheme or alteration to an existing scheme and is usually exhibited at an exhibition and marketing event. Model making is still one of the best ways to fully understand a new design. The viewer can walk around the model and by crouching or standing tall, can see every possible angle and view.

Model Makers and Model Making in the Middle East is very popular. The growth in Dubai for bigger and better passes to the model making required so extremely large and elaborate models are made throughout the year to exhibit at the many exhibitions in the region. Cityscape Abu Dhabi and Cityscape Dubai are the most popular exhibition event for model making. At these events there are many hundred models. Very popular models are scheme model making with the sole purpose of selling apartments or villas. The prospective purchaser can see where their new apartment will be and the view from the balcony and what is surrounding the new apartment blocks. All this can an is done by model making.

Also popular at the many events are masterplan models showing new developments. Some of these masterplan models have 2,000 – 3,000 villas as small matchbox size blocks, all individually lit with landscaping, trees and people. These vast models take thousands of man hours to make.

Architects use architectural models as a design tool to develop and fine tune designs as well as for client design presentations. Model making at a design stage ensures the look is as it should when built and also more importantly, any issues of fit and function can be worked at at the design stage through the model making to avoid costly corrections on site whilst building the actual scheme. For this reason design models and design development models should be to very exact dimensions. Design development models could be at a variety of scales usually 1:20 – 1:50 however in some cases scales could be from 1:10 to 1:1 if actual built materials are required as a mock up.

Architectural Models – Muted Colours

April 30th, 2012 Posted by Architectural Model Making, Architectural Model Making Abu Dhabi, Architectural Model Making Dubai, Model Making, Model Making Middle East, Model Making UAE No Comment yet

Architectural Models – Muted Colours

As architectural model makers we often get asked to produce models which overemphasise colours especially greens for landscaping and trees so the model portrays a look of a more fertile environment.  When making models for Western clients the complete opposite is expected with models showing muted and washed out colours which are toned down to match a models scale.  It is important to remember when making a model that colours require scaling too as well as the building elements.  Landscaping, trees and street furniture should blend in with the model in both size and colour.

 

This architectural model is a good example how colours can be muted to match a model’s scale.  All colours complement each other and no single element jumps out or is over emphasised. This toned down finish is achieved using a “frost” technique applied as a spray and usually benefits a model required for exhibition and marketing purposes.  Models of this nature are lit for maximum effect via a light source housed within the model base. The “frost” finish helps catch the light and maximises the glow from the internal light source creating more visually appealing model for exhibition and marketing events.

Colour is also changeable via the internal light source. LED colour control panels offer any mixture of colour to be achieved. By fitting an interactive touchscreen display the viewer is engaged with detailed information about a specific area or feature available instantly at the user’s fingertips.

All model components are made using laser cut parts drawn from CAD drawings with the same surface details applied either as a laser cut line, score line or etched details.

Architectural Models – Materials

Architectural Models – Materials

 

A variety of materials can be used when making architectural models. Traditionally acrylic is used in the Middle East however timber models are very popular in Western countries. Timber models are not as popular in the Middle east due to the moisture content of the air and the use of AC, timber moves in different environments and movement on any architectural model should be fixed for obvious reasons.

Architectural models made using wood are made the same way as any other model, a carcass is assembled using mdf* and veneers are applied to the surface. Each veneer is laser cut the same as acrylic parts, with surface score details shown as a slightly burnt line instead of a surface score with acrylic models.

Using timber veneers for models are very popular with architects as timber is see as a more natural look. Also timber models are very rarely sprayed so time spent choosing and agreeing model colours is not required.

*MDF is used as it has no grain therefore does not move or twist.

Middle East: Architectural Model Making

 

Keeping standards high when making architectural models in the Middle East is a challenge.

SMME produce architectural models to UK standards with a London look and feel using various industry leading suppliers from around the world.  High end materials are essential to produce high end models and we do everything we can to not compromise on this. However for clients who prefer costs are streamlined we use local materials which do not have the same exact tolerances as western suppliers but is much more cost effective.
