Renderings to Study the Sun

Using Technology to enhance design.

b Studio Architecture utilizes 3 dimensional computer modeling (BIM) to visualize and study our projects long before any dirt is even disturbed. Along side rendered still color images of buildings, we are able to incorporate video and realistic environments to help client visualize their future spaces. These tools also allow us to understand the environmental effect each piece of the building has on the design. Looking at the Sun’s movement during the day and seasons, we interpret those angles and sculpt windows and eves to best take advantage of natural light and views.

Each site has it’s unique features, and a custom building should look to utilize the best aspects of of nature in its design.

b Studio Architecture Project on

Dingle Street

See our Urban Compound on Dingle street Complete and featured on!

“A modern home nestled in the middle of Charleston, the creation of this sanctuary was based on a desire to bring multi-generational living back to the urban core. While many historic properties in the area might have a carriage house, this home took the opposite approach. The existing small “freeman’s cottage” was restored and updated into a cozy guest cottage, while the more modern main home rises behind its historic neighbors. Nestled in the trees, this tall home creates an urban refuge to enjoy. The home’s two-story screened porch and rooftop deck connect it to the seasonally tuned weather of the south. Catching breezes and connecting the interior to nature, a large movable glass wall helps bring the outdoors into this modern urban home. Wrapped in shou sugi ban siding, tall windows, and minimalist modern fixtures, this home is still able to blend in the background and create a hidden urban utopia for the owners.”
