Northwood was originally and over polluted and over populated district of Bradchester within close proximity of the city centre full of dirty industry and back to back housing. Northwood became an ideal candidate for the Bradchester and District Regeneration Program (documents released at a future date). On the 1st February 1993 relocation of residents and businesses beagn followed shortly by demolition and decontamination of the land. The design and look of the land was awarded to Steven Wright a local architect and work began on 1st May 1998.

I decided to design Northwood Park and its buildings myself and being a complete virgin at this sort of thing not to mention I was a little naive I thought this would be a simple and easy process (boy was I wrong). here I will document my progress (or lack of it) as I design buildings, pathways and anything else that will come to mind. Please feel free to comment below and leave suggestions and (constructive) criticism.

Firstly I would like to thank phillippbo for his Omnibus tutorial because without it I wouldn't of known where to start.

I decided to start out with a visitors centre for the park so visitors can pick up some information of the parks attractions and history and pick up some souvenirs too. I am hoping to create a building that simulates an eco building.

Here is some untextured views of the Northwood Park Visitors Centre.
