Tegel Manor in 3D

Postby VileTraveller » Fri Oct 16, 2015 8:40 am

To refresh my SketchUp skills so that I can keep up with my students I'm building a couple of Tegel Manor models in SketchUp, one exterior and one interior. Just the manor, by the way, not the dungeons below. It's kind of funny, being mostly one floor, so I might have to take a leaf out of the Japanese castle book and plonk the whole thing on revetment to give it a bit of a commanding position and allow a few windows in the outside walls.

Thing is, what architectural style would you assign to it? Tudor? Elizabethan? Jacobean? Or go continental with Romanesque? Gothic? Renaissance?

Kind of thinking Romanesque at the moment.

Romanesque is a good compromise.

It is indeed. About the right period, and it works with some of the elements.

Of course I'm shifting quite a few walls about by a foot or so - paper-thin walls make not a Romanesque building, one of whose defining features is thick, massive walls, after all. Once I've got all the wall thicknesses in I can start tweaking the layout some more to make blocks and define the roof lines. Obviously the Master Foyer, Great Hall, Mead Hall, Ballroom, East Wing, and Southwest Wing will have their own roof structures, but there will probably have to be gables and weird geometry between, too. And I'm already discovering misalignments between floors. :P

Curious to see how it comes out. I've always loved the floorplan, but never gave much real thought to its outward appearance.
