First Interior
Read 4720 times

Hi. I am getting more and more fascinated by creating interiors, solving lighting problems and so on.
What I find a bit disturbing is the blue background behind the images. Wish it were white or light grey. At least some neutral color.
Modeled in TurboCad - as always - and rendered in Vue 7.4 Infinite. No postwork.

Wonderful image, great POV.

What are the stairs made of and how are they constructed so that they do not flex like diving boards. How are they fastened?

Hi, John. I mean the blue background that surrounds the image. In fact, the base color of this gallery and the same color you get when replying to a thread.

Hi, Don.
That is a difficult question. I have seen stairs constructed that way in architectural magazines and found that a beautiful solution. The material is wood with steel rods protruding through the wall and entering the steps of the stairs. How all is fastened, don't ask me. No idea.
This interior was an old project for which only the exterior was needed. The architect had a different staircase, but I liked my solution better ( visually). I did this thing just for myself and not for a client. Business is slow these days.

re: Blue background

Ah, the Blue they use to alternate the posts. Unfortunately, the first post will always be blue when using the Default theme. Go to your Profile page, "Look and Layout Preferences" and change the "Current Theme". You might find the "Babylon Theme" more to your liking.

Thanks Rob. Perhaps it id done something along the line of these: http://books.google.com/books?id=e-TTTU3ISeoC&lpg=PA134&ots=kjB9BTrlOZ&dq=stringerless%20stair%20construction&pg=PA135

You've gotta be very very careful with such an approach. It may not be obvious that a load applied to the tread will produce a significant bending moment in the supporting stud. Structural failure, and perhaps personal injury, could result.

Yes, Don. I had thought it would be something like that.
Oh, Henry, don't worry. The houses are already built last year with conventional stairs. As an illustrator I don't have the right to change the design of the architect. In this case I just made the illustration for myself.  I think the design is very elegant but would most certainly not feel very happy mounting these stairs!

Hi, Julian.
This looks very good too. It has the openness I was after.
