We recently completed this Architectural model of Georges Dock in Dublin city at a scale of 1:250, for an architectural student at DIT. He needed to recreate the existing built fabric of 3 IFSC Buildings and the CHQ building.
We used laser cut MDF to create the base layout and then laser cut birch plywood for the building models. A lot of hours went in to this project but we were pleased with the end result, as was our client who needed this architectural model for part of his final year project.
You can watch a time lapse video of this Architectural Model Making project build here:
Laser cutting for model making allows you to get a lot of detail and accuracy. These projects are something that our team enjoy doing. If you have an Architectural Model Making project, then please get in touch with us, we would be happy to quote you.
As well as laser cut model making we can also use our 3D Printer to create models. This project included some 3D printed vehicles to bring some life to the streetscape. We can work with CAD models from a variety of software packages, from SketchUp to AutoCAD.
Having a physical model made of your architecture project serves as a functional guide to the architectural design. It can also be a nice keepsake created after the building has been finished. We have also worked with hobbyists who like to recreate existing building for pleasure or for use on railway sets or similar.
Here are some pictures of the completed project:
The original architects of the IFSC were Burke Kennedy Doyle who worked with the Custom House Docks Company. Phase 1 of the IFSC was built in 1998. It started with the construction of The International Centre, IFSC House and La Touche House.
