I am looking for a concept drawing or sketch for a neighborhood entrance structure design. This does not have to be a CAD drawing, or buildable plan, and instead something as simple as a black and white sketch in pen or pencil, or computer drawing.
We are looking for someone with creative architectural vision to come up with a design that is not overly complex to build, but looks nice.
- This structure will go in the center boulevard of the entrance which is about 10-feet in width. We do not have any additional space other than the boulevard. See the first image in the PDF for an idea of the space we are working with.
- We are envisioning a european / old world inspired entrance similar to a guard house with architectural character.
- We want the structure to be either brick or stone, or a combination of
- The structure must not exceed 10-feet of width and 14-feet in height. We do not need the dimensions in the drawing called out and exact, but the concept drawing must take these sizes into consideration for accurate proportions.
- The entrance road name is "Forest Gate"; therefore, our ideas are: a gate house with two non-operable gates on either side of the structure in a fixed open position. Or, a structure without gates that resembled a miniature guard house could be nice as well.
- Provide one (1) concept drawing for the proposal you quote
- The guard house or tower structure does not need an operable entrance and is simply a decorative piece, so the scale of it can be smaller. For example, it could have a miniature window and door, that is not actually large enough for someone to enter or operable.
- See inspirational photos in attached PDF. The first image in the PDF is a CAD concept we already tried and we feel a disconnect with the gate and the tower.
The drawing would consist of:
- a front and side view or a perspective drawing of the entrance structure with accurate proportions and attention to scale
- materials and significant architectural details (brick solider course, arches, etc. drawn in and labeled)
- drawing can be black and white or color, and does not need to be computer generated
- Size of structure must not exceed 10-feet in width and must be under 14-feet in height
