This is the second time we have posted a finished project on the Lumion forums, there are a some great projects on display here and we enjoy regularly viewing the amazing content that the community is creating.

We have recently completed a stunning design concept for a new home, landscape and pool in the Adelaide Hills.

Set on a 5600 square metre steeply sloping site in the leafy suburb of Stirling, the home exudes a modern aesthetic whilst retaining the warmth of natural stone and timber finishes throughout.

Our clients had a complex brief and an amazing art collection of photography, paintings and ceramics that we were able to integrate seamlessly into our 3D design.
Some of the standout features of the new home include:

• Infinity edge pool with stepping stone and double water feature cascade
• Amazing cantilevered dining room pod overlooking the garden with inverted stepped pyramid ceiling and timber blade hallway
• Home office elevated pod with natural timber vaulted ceiling overlooking the swimming pool and private Japanese garden
• Grand feature staircase with LED strip lighting, cantilevered chisel shaped timber step treads over a black granite reflection pond
• Spacious main living area with clerestory windows and custom 5m high timber panelled ceiling with recessed bulkhead lighting
• Full size Tennis court with fire pit, viewing platform and niched seating area
• Four car garage with private driveway and separate visitor car park  entrance
• Luxury master ensuite with splayed window reveal and carved marble bath over looking a picture framed autumn forest view

The video is our longest and most detailed presentation to date and included a complete Virtual Reality tour of the entire project with the latest OCULUS VR headset.

For more information about our amazing design service please visit our website:

Software used to create the project is Archicad 20 on Mac and Lumion 7
Approx a week of solid work in Lumion to set up video renderings and VR content.
Our PC took about 4-5 seconds per frame @1080p 3 star. - About 42 hours to complete the video...
We have a GTX 980 Ti with an Intel i7 5930 CPU @3.5GHz and 16GB RAM

We really pushed the technology to the limits on this project - we can't wait to see what Lumion 8 brigs to the table!

We really enjoy using Lumion for our presentations, our clients love the videos, are in awe of the Oculus GEAR VR and are transfixed by the high quality glossy rendering booklets we make.

Hope you enjoy the video - it is quite long at 11 mins but there is so much detail to present!

Amazing video - thanks for submitting it!

I really hope you'll get a chance to render it again in 5 star quality. :)

The amount of detail you have in the house and landscape is second to none!! A truly complete residential project!!
I loved all the detail inside and out - what a fun project...  Just when I thought the video would end, you show us another room (interior and exterior) of this special project!!

Congrats - your hard work has paid off - thanks for sharing!!
