Making of artists’ office

Making of artists’ office

This scene is not very complicated, but there are some small tricks that make it special. First – it is rather small office space, so we used Vray camera with small focal length. To lighten this small interior, we used not only light sources but also atmospheric effects (Vray fog) that give this perfect “lazy-afternoon” mood. A lot of high quality props were used to achieve “artistic mess”. Finally we put some cars and buildings on the other side of the street, to set the scene in a city. So, despite that the scene is small in cubic meters, it contains a lot of different objects that make it believable.


CetraRuddy Designs Tallest Building in New York’s Meatpacking District

CetraRuddy has been selected to design a new 18-story office building in Manhattan’s trendy Meatpacking District. With plans filed before zoning ordinances in the area changed the height limit to 130 feet, the project will feature an extra 140 feet, with a total height of 270 feet.

Located on West 15th Street near Ninth Avenue, the office building—which was previously designed as a hotel—will connect to a landmark district building on West 14th Street, which will be renovated as a part of the project. Together, the two buildings will feature 250,000 square feet of office space with a landscaped rooftop and an additional five terraces for communal work and relaxation areas.
