Architectural Model of a Peter Cook, AIA, designed home.

This model was built by architectural model maker, Gary Lawrance,AIA, of Lawrance Architectural Presentations and was made out of white museum board, foam core, and other white papers. Built at a scale of 1/4" = 1'-0", it was made to come completely apart and showed the staircases, bathrooms, fireplaces, bookcases and kitchen, including the sink. Models such as these clearly illustrate to the client what their future home will look like and how it will work for them. Such models are also desired as presentation pieces to be displayed in the completed home.
