This project consisted in the dimensioning and design of a heating and climate control system for a dwelling, by renewable energy sources. This was done with thermo solar panels, and a biomass boiler as backup. The original purpose of this system was to keep the temperature of an indoor swimming pool and make it usable the whole year. Also, we designed a heat exchanger for the heating and air renovation system of this dwelling. The project also implied the dimensioning and draughting of HVAC installation, insulation, and installation and running costs. All of this was done according to Danish laws, as well as the climatology of this country.
The project was made along with my old friend Enrique Muñoz Arjona, Mechanical Engineer by the Málaga University. Our project was supervised by Aage Bredhal Eriksen.
What we can see here is the visualization of the project. The model was ported from AutoCAD to 3ds max, and rendered in V-Ray.
Finally, here we can see a few stills and a short animation that take us through the house. It is not exactly the same render that was shown at the time of our presentation: the computing power budget prevented us to present this video. Nevertheless, the animation, model and environment come from the very same *.max file (this explains the poor vegetation and detailing, where there is a lot of room for improvement).
The rendering was done in V-Ray, while sky dome was done in VUE and rendered in a separate pass. These later were composed in After Effects.
