Proposed Porcelanosa Stair, Geoffrey Packer @ Spiral Staircase Systems (3D)

Title: Proposed Porcelanosa Stair
Name: Geoffrey Packer @ Spiral Staircase Systems
Country: United Kingdom
Software: Photoshop, VIZ, VRay

The second of 2 renders for a forthcoming book to celebrate 35 years of staircase designed and fabricated by the company I work for.

This is the design we proposed to the porcelanosa tile company, and not accepted (Just as well really as it is a prototype design which works fine in domestic situations, but possibly not in public!). It makes a good render none the less. Some horrible looking stair was made in its place!

Added furniture in which will probably be cropped in advertising, but adds something to the scene.

Viz, vray and photoshop used

Composited background in (guess where you would have to be too this view?). This is the dodgyist bit IMO. C&C welcome

- I like this image because it is very simplistic with out being empty.
- I believe that the outside is a little too dark for the interior lighting though.
- Nice clean geometry and good use of space, looks like a place I'd like to live.

Woah nice work. Like the feel. The Design has come good and the Camera has also given a good a very very good impact. .

I feel compared to the Exterior Background lighting the light that fills the room should be more sharp.

Rest is very nice. You get rated.

Vray Rocks .

Wonderful image!
One Question: Is that an elevator in the middle, which the staircase raps around?

Is that a smoking waste can? in a building in chicago? on a floor other than the first floor?

It looks great, just thought I would make mention of that funny bit there.

I think the lighting is very well matched for the scene.

Very elegent. I like the flow of the pice. Well done.
However it looks like if you were walking along the edge of the step the glass and all the railing would cause it to bow atleast vibrate a bit with your foot falls.

Hello thanks for all your comments.


Blackcarrot : We are based in Sussex, in a village called Glynde (as in gyndebourne the opera house) near Brighton. This is obviously not the view out of window! cows are about the only things I can see!
DevilHacker: yes, it is a lift in the middle.
azozel : it doesn't move! we have made 4/5 of these stairs, with another 2 at least on the 'drawing board' (or should I say screen) some with structural calcs. We do have photos of them.
TheCleaner: I have BSc in Architectural Techincian-ing or something! Most of the other draughtsman have BA's in product design.
andrewjohn81: LOL. didn't think of fire regs. better put some sprinklers in to....

Fantastic image! 5 stars from me

(i'm wondering how it's possible that this thread has gotten a rating as low as 3 stars at the moment. I'm seeing these ridiculously low ratings for images that really deserve better more and more on this forum :( )

Amazing work. I really love the light feeling in this room. The top of the ceiling has a nice shape. Great work!
