Basswood architectural models are a warm, stylish and natural-looking way to communicate designs and concepts visually, and can be a nice traditional departure from typical modern architectural models. Basswood architectural models are a dynamic way to construct a monochromatic model, when colors or finishes have not been finalized. No other medium generates the same level of excitement, interest and understanding than a fully realized scale model which all viewers can experience and discuss simultaneously. These architectural models can be used to pre-sell homes or condos, pre-lease office space, win projects, communicate ideas during a design review, or to allow the public to experience the layout and design of a space before the project is completed.
As architectural model makers, we have vast experience working with architects, developers, marketing firms hired by a developer, clients, or any combination of those in conjunction to provide not only the highest quality model, but the one most appropriate to your needs. We can work with you to assess your requirements, and guide you to choose the best scale and level of finish to fit your budget, and needs. We have the experience to create a compelling basswood architecture model whether its a large massing model, or a single family residence.
When creating scale basswood architecture models, we typically fabricate these with a laser cutter, enabling us to add detail to your model in the form of scribe lines, or laser engraved detail. We are also able to source large blocks of basswood to create solid block buildings for massing models. As skilled architectural model builders we are also extremely well versed in the more traditional manual model-making techniques, and use all methods combined to achieve the highest quality, most economical and efficiently constructed models you can find. We can also create highly accurate site and terrain for your architectural models using our 3-axis CNC, or matching basswood laser-cut stepped contours. The site quality and accuracy is limited only by the quality of information we are provided. We can also hand-fabricate impressive details from a wide range of materials such as acrylic, polyurethane foam, and polystyrene, and paint these finer details to match the tone and texture of basswood for seamless integration into the model. Browse our portfolio to see some of the stunning projects we have produced as an architectural model company. You will quickly see the depth and breadth of our capabilities as model makers. We have produced many detailed sites, private homes, schools, historic landmarks, commercial properties, towers, stadiums, industrial factories and much more.
We can usually provide a quote within 24 hours. To get a quote started for an architectural model, we need a few pieces of information. Elevation and plan drawings in CAD format such as a DWG file, are preferred, however we can usually provide a ball park price range with just a perspective rendering. If only PDFs are available, then ideally vector format is by far better than raster. Please note that the more complete information we have the lower the price of the architectural model. We will also need to know the extents of the site the model is to cover, contours numbered so we know which way is up, and which details you wish to show on the site, such as trees, shrubs, planters and pathways. We will also need to know the scale you wish to have your architectural model built in, and the level of detail desired. We can provide photos of previous jobs to give you an idea of the various levels of detail available.
