50+ house floor plans and 3D models designed by me from personal interest (artistic hobby / training) as well as for various customers. A mix of architectural design styles inspired from Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, India, Europe, America and many others. I keep my past works here to offer ideas for students. View for free, pay and download AutoCAD DWG files.
Here are my best designs made by me from personal interest (artistic hobby / training) as well as for various customers, from 2008 to around 2016 when I retired from architecture for more profitable IT industry. While I am not making new designs anymore, I have over 100 designs (editable AutoCAD DWG files) available for download.
I started self-studying architecture in 2008 and designed “Teoalida’s Virtual City”, originally a hobby of graphic design and 3D modeling in AutoCAD, but a fully functional housing system. Many people contacted me for architectural design services. But simply answering chats and emails, discuss project requirements to quote a price, is a waste of time if 90% never pay, only 10% have paid me and only after seeing (part of) work done. Once got paid, some customers were not satisfied or changed mind so I had to do changes (delaying me from doing other jobs) then I cannot sell same design to multiple people (like how I sell databases) because in architecture each customer have different requirements, making whole profession of architect a waste of time.
This article must be read by all students BEFORE choosing architecture universities, to understand what you should expect and not make same mistake like me!
In 2012-2016 I designed myself houses and apartments for dozens customers. Currently I have a team of 5 architects, located in India, Nigeria, Philippines, Romania and United States, who offered to work for me if I am too busy, but seeing their high experience and cheap prices I decided to pass them ALL architectural projects, to free my time so I can focus on IT / data providing industry.
I can provide DWG file, 2D or 3D model of your HDB flat for only $40! And not just HDB floor plans. I can also design condo floor plans, house plans, etc. Contact me for anything that can be drafted in AutoCAD!
I design furniture since ~14 years old (~2003), around 15 years old my mom employed in a furniture factory so we refurnished my room using my pre-made drawings. People who contacted me over years made me to pursue my career in architecture rather than interior design. Whenever I will do furniture design again, we will see… I am using AutoCAD so my drawings are more technical instead of photo realistic, like the ones made by professional interior designers in 3D Studio Max.
Minimum room size, length, width and floor area, setback requirements and other rules used in apartment blocks and house projects designed by me in “Teoalida’s Virtual City”. plus comparison with building codes from various countries.
Before moving into architecture design in 2008, I also modeled few 3D car models in AutoCAD. I did NOT wanted to design the ultimate sport car, instead I designed an average classic family car, with many details as possible, to show my skill as graphic designer, and to use many of AutoCAD photorealistic effects as possible, to show the performance of AutoCAD render. Do you though that AutoCAD is only for 2D drawings?
The hobby for designing maps have a long history. Starting from 6 years old I was drawing random roads on paper and coloured them in various colors. The first time I designed a map of a real city was at age of 14, in 2003 I made on paper a map of my city downtown with a special attention given to historical buildings.
This palace is one of the most beautiful 3D modeling works that I ever designed in AutoCAD. Many people were impressed not only by the beautiful 3D renders, but also for excellent model geometry that makes it to look like 18-19th century neoclassic architecture. Some people asked me how I got the idea to design such complex building, and suggested to change some details to make it better, BUT…
Most AutoCAD designers offering paper-to-CAD conversion simply put the scanned JPG in background and draw over it, every line, often making various identical drawing elements at different dimensions, aka low-quality CAD drawing.
Personally I offer quality paper-to-CAD conversion services, taking care to make every element of drawing a rounded dimension, and in case of floor plans of various buildings, I will give you option to add dimensions in CAD file as they are in the original floor plan, as well as adding more dimensions, or providing a CAD file without dimensions but designed according dimensions from the scanned floor plan.
You give me JPG, PNG or other raster image format, and I give you DWG, DXF or PDF. Contact me for price quote!
