Prize(s)Honorable Mention
Entry Description

ONE NORTH is an experimental study in lighting for residential apartments. We took a cold shell apartment in an upcoming project in our city and designed a layout. By adding the right elements of furniture, backgrounds and interesting sources of lighting, we let the software do its magic.
The result is a transformation of a blank space into a vibrant modern apartment space.
The use of colors, textures and materials add to the luxurious scheme.
The outdoor terrace was visualized as a space to contemplate after hours.
The renders were realized as night views, when its time to unwind and reflect.
