Hi girls 'n guys,
I'm currently teaming up with a company that develops interior and exterior designs for restaurants, nightclubs, discos, offices, hotels, showrooms, exhibitions.
First task is an entrance for a dance club for 4000 people... this portal is 5.5 meters high = 18 feet. Made of black or raw iron, translucent plastic tubes with different diameters and tons of spot lights and neon bulbs in the tubes. Still have to model the building 'behind the scene', but I thought I can already post it for your comments. Please note that this stuff doesn't have to be perfect in terms of the smallest rendering detail, the focus is on feasability, lighting alternatives and construction. The rendering will serve only for presentation purposes to achieve a more realistic look than the previous hand drawn illustrations they have used.
The staircase with cashier counter etc will follow soon ;-}
This biz is booming, and until last week I didn't know the costs for design, development and construction (building) a dance club for 3000 people costs around 4 million US $... Seems I've cracked kind of a jackpot ;-}
In this case I had an existing floor plan of the building and a few sketches. The CAD was done in Rhino, rendering in C4D.

If you don't know how to dream you'll never be a designer.
We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.
