Domus-AU is an Australian company offering a unique modular housing system. According to the founder and architect Edward Duc, the aim has always been a design to achieve quality at a reasonable cost as well as consideration of simplicity of construction. Sustainability plays an important part in “the freedom house”, aiming for a long life, loose fit and low energy consumption.
After the first prototype of the domus-AU concept was assembled near Newcastle NSW in 2016, Ronny met Edward at the 2018 Modular Construction and Pre-Fabrication ANZ Conference in Sydney. A year after the presentation and our initial meeting, Edward wanted to bring his system to the market. He approached DSGNK to develop a concept for illustrations representing the core ideas of his modular system in Australian settings.
Having tried other visualisation services before, Edward was very particular with the outcome and level of detail he wanted. After establishing some basic ideas for the visualisation of three different designs – Snug, Breezeway and Deck House – we went through a process of preparing sketches and collages, before producing 3D renderings for each of the designs. Due to the clients specific requirements and his trained eye for detail, it took us a little while to get it right, but receiving a “your images look fantastic” feedback at the end is proof of our work being appreciated.
