The Reserve on the Erie Canal, Brighton, NY

The Reserve is a new 327-home residential community being built by Anthony J. Costello & Son alongside the historic Erie Canal, just south of where I live in Brighton, New York. The development will include loft condominiums, townhomes, patio homes, traditional brownstones, and custom-built estate homes.  It will also feature a private Clubhouse, built directly beside the canal, which will be available to all residents and will serve as the social hub of the community.  CastleView 3D was engaged to create photorealistic interior renderings of a variety of spaces in the Clubhouse.

In our meetings, Mr. Costello was very clear that the renderings of the Clubhouse spaces should be absolutely authentic in order to show potential residents exactly what they could expect, so I worked closely with the development’s interior designer and with Costello management to ensure that all furnishings, finishes, and decor were depicted exactly as specified in the plans.

This was one of the biggest, most challenging, and most rewarding projects I worked on in 2012, and I’d like to share some of the renderings I did for it. Because there are quite a few images, I’m going to break this into two separate posts.  Today ‘s post will show the spaces on the main floor of the Clubhouse, and tomorrow we’ll go down to the ground floor and pool area.


Interior renderings – Main Floor

The main entrance to the Clubhouse opens from a porte cochere on Reserve View Blvd onto a Grand Entry Foyer.  At the other end of the hallway is a balcony (not shown in this rendering) which overlooks the pool and the historic Erie Canal.

On the right is a comfortable seating area, and on the left is the Concierge Desk.  The Board Room can be glimpsed down the small hall next to the Concierge Desk.

Further down the entry hall on the left is the Harvard Room, a comfortable lounge with overstuffed chairs, game tables, and a library, and across the hall, the Dining Room, which seats 80 with overflow seating for an additional 40 people.  Both of these rooms also open onto the balcony.

Finally, adjacent to the Dining Room is the Gourmet Kitchen, which will be used for catering as well as for gourmet cooking classes.

The main floor will also house the sales and administrative offices for the development.

A grand staircase with a water feature descends from the center of the foyer down to the lower level.  I’ll share renderings of those spaces in my next post.

  1. Great job Dr.K! Wonderful as always!

  2. Oh Kathy your renderings are simply fabulous! It’ is really inspiring to see Chief used to create commercial spaces -particularly the rendering of the gourmet kitchen that has many industry-specific symbols. Back when I was in college (and doing stuff by hand) my thesis had a commercial kitchen in it. I had never worked in -or even set foot inside a commercial kitchen- so you can guess I had to spend a lot of time researching all of the elements that make a commercial kitchen work. This is from the specific commercial appliances to the work flow. Until then, I though a salamander was a little lizard like thingy! I know you worked with a designer who specified all that stuff, but you had to model it. So I know what a daunting chore that was! You did a great job! Thanks for sharing your hard work!

      Thank you, Pam! Yes, this work was challenging in so many ways. In addition to the Costello management, I was working with a team of several different architects, a landscape designer, and an interior designer, who all had input and/or approvals at each stage of the process! I was honored to be included as part of the architectural team on this project. I believe the Clubhouse itself was designed by the architects at Stieglitz Snyder in Buffalo, NY.

      Many of the symbols were custom-modeled because exact matches were needed. But interestingly enough, I found most of the commercial kitchen equipment in the Google warehouse, which was a lifesaver!

    Kathleen,

    Wonderful renderings. What were the presets TR 1 or 2?
    I hope you put them up on Thea.

      Thanks, Richard. I believe these were all rendered with TR1 in Thea. The scenes had enough lighting that they didn’t need the extra boost from TR2.

      Where would you suggest that I post these on the Thea forum — in the Showcase area?

  4. Very nice! very good! Excellent in all aspects…
