Right off the sketch pad, this is a 1st look at a site. They are interested in a waterfeature at the corner, so I wanted to try and capture how that might turn out.
Very raw, very fast, but we need to give the customer good visual ideas so they can express opinions and move the design process forward. This early feedback is good, maybe better for finding out what they don’t want or like, as opposed to what they want/like.
With waterfeatures like this it is better to find ways to design a great backdrop, to help sell the illusion. Also the vertical elements flanking the focal to bring the complete scene to the corner.
I won't mind if you share this:
