2015 Royal Pavilion Brighton

2015 Royal Pavilion Brighton

The Royal Pavilion has been carefully modelled using Lightwave3D©.

The outside walls are positioned from a floor plan, first published in 1826 in "Views of the Royal Pavilion" by John Nash.

Roof details are always a problem for anyone trying to produce an accurate model but the Model Designer found a YouTube video from a drone which was flown over the building in 2014. The level of accuracy, achieved in this model, would not have been possible without this video and we are very grateful to the gentleman who produced it.

Humphry Repton’s ‘Red Book’ of 1806 shows an important stage in the evolution of the Royal Pavilion — even though none of his designs were ever implemented. 

In the early 1800s, George, then Prince of Wales, decided to remodel his Marine Pavilion. In 1805 Repton was commissioned to produce a series of illustrations showing the palace redeveloped in an ‘oriental’ style.

As part of the objective to model Brighton's most famous buildings, in 2015 Colin decided to model Brighton Pier.

After an attempt to find plans for the structure on line proved unsuccessful, Colin took photos from every angle. Additionally, a YouTube video of a drone journey along the length of the pier revealed the roof detail perfectly.

The finished model has 127,438 polygons and represents hundreds of man hours of work. There are 69 images applied to the polygons as textures which make the finished model realistic.

Danny House is an impressive Grade I listed Elizabethan red brick Mansion near Hurstpierpoint in West Sussex, England. It lies at the northern foot of Wolstonbury Hill and is regarded as one of the finest stately houses in Sussex. Colin worked, over several weeks, with the Owner, to produce a computer model which was ultimately signed off as an accurate reproduction of this spectacular building.

I found Colin to be a highly effective manager who combines a great breadth of technical knowledge with a confident but very personable management style.
