De Architekten Cie from Amsterdam won the competition for the Galileo Reference Centre (GSA- https://www.gsa.europa.eu) – a new data collection building for the Galileo satellite system in Noordwijk, The Netherlands.
Our studio was responsible for the visual side of the project including night/daylight exterior and interior visualisations. We carefully selected the camera angles to present this project in a subtle and unusual way. In this particular commission special attention was given to the night shot. We expressed the sky full of stars being the main interest of the client. Perspective of the daylight image aimed to show the surrounding nature, which blend with the reflective material of the façade. In result the concept got the green light and we can see it built. Renders were created in 3ds max, V-ray and Photoshop. To achieve unique mood of the visuals we used the matte painting technique.
