Architecture 1: Ranch House Design
This year Architecture 1 developed a ranch house design. This project is designed to be culmination of all the student skills learned this school year. Students were first tasked with designing a functional kitchen. Next, students were tasked with designing a 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom ranch house design based on their kitchen design. Students employed their skills of hand sketching and Autodesk Revit to expand their design to meet the project requirements. Students finalized their project by creating 3D Renderings using Lumion Rendering to create photo realistic images of their design solution.
