Resumen del concurso

I build media walls that are framed with dimensional lumber, and then covered with sheetrock, rock, paint, and other surface treatments. I frequently have wood components such as shelving, cabinets, etc. There are often fireplace inserts (electric or gas). And always TVs. There are always LED lighting fixtures incorporated into the design.

I am looking for someone to help me design and render these wall systems in Sketchup. I know there are better rendering applications out there, but Sketchup will let me make small edits to the file myself.

Visually appealing designs are difficult to create. The best ones involve multiple levels or planes to create dynamic lines and break up wall surface. See the green arrows in Primary Target image.

Intersecting lines (orange dashed lines) are visually appealing, but when overdone can be confusing.

Color schemes are almost always muted earth tones of tan – brown. Occasionally we’ll get a customer who wants grey, but it is less common.

The features incorporate radius edges & corners (either .75” or 1.5” radius) and often have gentle curves. If you understand sheetrock over wood framing, I use these products extensively

Rock is merely an accent, and should be used sparingly. These are not masonry walls. Wood should be used for trim, highlights or shelves. It’s important to keep the primary component painted sheetrock.

I am always careful to create designs that do NOT place the television into a boxed frame. Television sizes change too frequently, and a customer does not want to remodel their home when they purchase a new or larger unit. TV’s should be wall hung - “floated” over features in a way that size change would not affect the overall design.

I am looking for original designs, and continuing to work with the winner on multiple designs for future projects. Each will have unique dimensions, layouts, and features. Each design has many revisions but mostly in color selection or very general dimensions so they aren’t overly time consuming. A “library” of components such as shelves, curved pieces, fireplace hearth, etc could be built and re-used multiple times.
Similarly, many components are manufactured in a shop, and then simply installed on-site. See blue arrows in Primary Target image. This makes installations more precise and faster.

I am currently working on two projects

A. is a wall 144” tall, 168” wide, and maximum depth of 24”
B. is a wall 144” tall, 267” wide, and maximum depth of 22”

Photo similar renderings are appreciated, but I understand the limitations of SketchUp rendering. I’m not sure if SketchUp files can be loaded into other applications with more powerful rendering capabilities.

The attached files are NOT photographs of my work. They are professional photographs of the very best companies who do this style of work.

    other rendering software is Okay. If we develop a longer term working relationship, arrangements will have to be made since I only have limited 3D skills in Sketchup, no other applications.

    a grey wall is fine. it's certainly an option that people like. Using two or three shades often gives the wall depth and more character.

    Almost no entries! Winner will re-create file "Primary Target image" as accurately and faithfully as possible. Do not need to include furniture or artwork. Simply the wall framing, fireplace, rock, etc.

    PLEASE NOTE! In all sample images the primary material is sheetrock (drywall, gypsum board) on wood framing. Look at the sample images. Do not apply wood cabinets, frames, Please look at new images step 1, step 2, and step 3. It's easy, put the energy into the design, not the added pieces.
