Work Portfolio - Glanworth extensions

Glanworth is the name of the residence situated in Darling Point, the most desirable address in Australia. Located adjacent to the Opera House in Sydney, this waterfront address is the most prominent location possible in Sydney Harbour, Australia.

Purchased by Kerry Stokes in 1998 for a cool $10 million dollars, he engaged Heather Buttrose Associates to design and supervise the construction of a $3 million dollar extension !

In January 1999, VRgrafix completed photomontages of a proposal to extend the heritage listed 'Glanworth' residence.

Working in conjunction with Heather Buttrose Associates, a 3D model was constructed of the existing residence, with the proposed extension for submission to council.

Wide format professional photographs were taken of the site as existing, which were scanned in at a high resolution to be used as backgrounds.

The 3D model was textured up with sandstone, tile and materials to match existing - to try and approximate how the finished extension would look.

The model was then perspective matched to the scanned photos and composted together to create "Photomontages" using Photoshop.
