HUMA Designs + 3D Renders of Regrarians Projects

Regrarians are frankly very excited about our new exclusive relationship with HUMA Designs of Bulgaria. We’ve long wanted to produce amazingly realistic visualisations of our clients’ project designs but our capacity was limited. This relationship provides Regrarians to produce the kind of rendering capabilities that up to now have been only available to the building and landscape architecture industry and we are very pleased to be leading the way in the Regenerative Agriculture & Living industry with these communications of our concepts and visions. HUMA Designs works off of a payment basis of donations and so should you wish you can donate directly to them for the work they do on your behalf as a Regrarians client OR you just want to help them do an even better job in the future then please by all means help them out.Following are a catalogue of projects that HUMA Designs‘ Georgi Pavlov has completed for Regrarians to date: McIvor Farm Foods – Tooborac, VIC, AU. This 250 acre project was a relatively easy design with the main need being to provide an intensively-managed, pastured pig (and sheep) operation with a gravity water system & access system.This is an image of the original concept plan that I drafted onto a RTK GPS survey completed by Victorian firm FarmingIT:

These are 2 different contour renders that highlight the elevation changes and broad topography:

This completed layout represents the Keyline-patterned savannah systems, main riparian corridor plantings, dams and access:

 Yobarnie – North Richmond, NSW, AU
In 2005 fter comparing Douglass Baglin’s iconic oblique aerial photo the the 1968 version of P.A. Yeomans classic, ‘Water for Every Farm’,  with a 2005 Google Earth image, I completed a concept plan of how this site might be adapted to accomodate the methods outlined in Yeomans’ last book, ‘The City Forest’ (1971). 2 years later and Yobarnie had controversially fallen into the hands of a developer and so after the developers ‘Heritage Consultants’ contacted me asking my opinion of the significance of ‘Yobarnie’. Following this I submitted my concept to them as a means by respecting Mr. Yeomans’ original design. Unfortunately they’ve taken no notice, however the original planning deal has now become embroiled in a corruption scandal…

This is the ‘The City Forest’ (Yeomans, 1971) design I completed in 2005 for a Permaculture Design Course (PDC) in Dong Xoai, Binh Phuoc, Viet Nam:

The contour map of ‘Yobarnie’ as drafted for ‘The Geographic Basis of Keyline’ by J. MacDonald Holmes (1958) that HUMA Designs‘ Georgi Pavlov used as a base map for his renders:

HUMA Designs‘ Georgi Pavlov produced this 3D model of the ‘Yobarnie’ landscape based on the contour map in ‘The Geographic Basis of Keyline’ by J. MacDonald Holmes (1958):

then produced these renditions of the ‘The City Forest’ inspired layout:

Carversville Farm Foundation
, Mechanicsville, PA, USA
Old friend and colleague Abe Collins (Collins Grazing LLC) called us in to help him with a new project called Carversville Farm in Pennsylvania USA. Abe wanted a second set of eyes over the Keyline layout of this project that he’d developed and so we re-jigged this following the Regrarians Platform process. Abe had based his Keyline planning concepts using Google Earth as it is free + he can easily share his work with clients. I did the same after applying my changes and details in MapInfo Professional which I then exported back into GoogleEarth on the fly:

Abe then enhanced my concepts again in GoogleEarth:

The clients were struggling with visualising what these concepts would look like on the ground and so I called in HUMA Designs‘ Georgi Pavlov who then produced this series of renders which left the clients in no doubt:

The bold Hoku Nui project has been devised by the Frost Family, and is headed by its sister and brother directors, Karin and Erik Frost. Karin was the inventor of the famous ErgoBaby baby carrier and Erik a Wisconsin-based builder of energy efficient dwellings. They called Regrarians in to help with the project in January 2014 and we worked with Erik’s excellent early design concepts (Erik uses Adobe Illustrator with a GIS plug-in) to reconfigure what we call an ‘agro-residential’ development project:

During our site visit to Mau’i in January of 2014 and after following through the entire Regrarians Platform with the clients and their management team, I devised the following concept sketch. This captured much of Erik’s concept plan however fused in Water & Access elements that were inspired by P.A. Yeomans’ ‘City Forest‘ urban planning ideas, Forestry systems that followed Keyline concepts and also provided linear shelter and a KiwiTech-based Fencing layout:

Upon returning home to Australia we then created a detailed concept plan in MapInfo Professional which created accurately sized house lots, tree widths and so on:

During follow up RON sessions we decided to remove the internal wide-spaced agroforesty systems lower in the property (left) and have the avenue, border and riparian plantings perform paddock shelter functions. Erik used Adobe Illustrator to great effect to take our new concepts and make these modifications:

At this stage HUMA Designs‘ Georgi Pavlov then decided to try his hand at doing some digital illustrations of our original concept plan:

The original contour map was generated using various means (Lidar & Photogrammetry) and was not accurate enough for the a development of this type. We commissioned a full RTK GPS survey of the 260 acre project site and following this Georgi then worked on a 3D render of the new contour map:

Next Erik modified the contour map to accomodate the some changes to the dams, matching their capacity and embankment volumes with the road catchment  and soil compaction projections:

During our last visit to Hoku Nui in November 2014 we asked HUMA Designs‘ Georgi Pavlov to produce a fly-thru video render of his work and this really changed the way people involved with the project could see how it sat on what is currently a cattle pasture:
