Modern Northwestern Small House
Inspired by modern architecture and the cool forests of the northwest, this modern small home uses clean lines and rich wood textures to create an inviting, efficient, and carefully lit scene in Unreal Engine 5 with Lumen.
Modern Northwestern Small House - UE5
Inspired by modern architecture and the cool forests of the Northwestern United States, this modern small home is one of my first attempts working with architectural visualization in Unreal Engine 5. I wanted to use clean lines and rich wood textures to compose an inviting interior and an eye-catching exterior.
The project uses Lumen Global Illumination to accurately mimic an environment set in the Northwestern United States. I carefully designed the outdoor lighting to highlight the crisp angles throughout the architecture.
The interior uses suspended track lighting to create an inviting open floor plan that feels larger than it truly is. A sensation of warmth was important, and this I emphasized blending natural wood textures with pops of color. The living room lighting was designed to mimic that of a stage, taking advantage of tall windows and natural light to bring the cool outdoor environment into the warm living space.
In contrast with the brightly lit first floor designed for entertaining; the bedroom is sparsely lit with cubic lighting to create a dark, moody aesthetic. I wanted to build a striking contrast between the two floors with a sharp transition from the warmer living space to the cozy secretiveness of the dark bedroom loft.
