an exercise in revitalising zeitgeist in a slightly out-of-date residence

This project involved looking through Hemnet.se, a Swedish platform for selling and buying properties, in order to find a house in need of renovation. The task was to modernise the interior and then visualise my ideas in 3D.

I chose to work on Storuman 279, a 1940s two story villa located in Lappland, northern Sweden. It’s been renovated in several stages since it was first built. As of today, its facades are still clad in fibrolite – asbestos cement – highly due for a replacement. The interior is dominated by yellowed pine ceilings and plastic carpet floors, reminiscent of the 90s. 

The interior shots shown above – the living room; the kitchen and the upstairs office respectively, are also the views I recreated. This was done to show a clear comparison before and after my proposed changes.

Tools used: 3Ds Max, Corona, AutoCAD, Photoshop
