James of King and Drury Construction approached us with an interesting project just over a year ago. The company had purchased a beautiful site in the South Downs National park, where they planned to convert a couple of the existing buildings and construct brand new ones to create a private development containing four executive detached homes. It was a major project, and one which required many revisions to the plans whilst CGI work was in progress.
It is always an added benefit to commission CGIs as an aid to the design process, particularly in unusual builds like this one. We produced the CGIs in two phases, handling two buildings at a time and then producing a bird’s eye view to finish. Many revisions took place of each building as various finishes were experimented with. It is difficult to imagine, for example, how a certain cladding will look on a building, or how a slate roof will compare to a tiled version. With the amount of different roof pitches under consideration here, there were lots of options to compare. Using CGIs as part of the design process helped crystalize the plans so James was certain how to proceed with the actual build.
The build is now complete and you can compare one of our CGIs with a photo of the final building.
As you can see, it’s a really beautiful development which required a great deal of hard work, refining and imagination. Congratulations to James and the team at King & Drury Construction for pulling this off. Click here for a link to the Orchard Barn website where you can see all of our CGIs in the brochure.

Olivia has worked in marketing for the past twenty years, in a range of positions at Rock FM and Route Publishing. In 2016 she achieved a life-long dream; The Big Midweek, a book she had been writing with iconic Fall bass-player, Steve Hanley, was published to high critical acclaim. It was a pioneering way of over-hauling the tired format of the traditional rock memoir. Engaging the use of creative writing techniques, the book was written as a novel, with Steve’s narrative portraying him as the main character in a weird and frightening world we can now all be party to. Growing up a little since then, her love of Grand Designs and doing up houses rivals her forays into the world of rock and roll. In her current role, she is lucky to be able to combine those interests and skills by developing The Pixel Workshop brand and earning its place at the forefront of 3D property visualisation marketing in the UK.
