Habitats in Hexels

Over the years, the Hexels community has created diverse works of art. One of the most recurring themes is creating an isometric piece of a habitat. It could be their dream home, a recreation of a memory, or simply, their own bedroom. Today we share a few of these sweet submissions that have been posted to our grounds over the last few years.

  1. Arianne Criseyde created an ultra-heartwarming breakfast piece.
  2. Beth Mohler re-interpreted the Firewatch tower in full isometric glory.
  3. Andres Reinot showed us his rendition of how president Obama departed the Oval Office.
  4. Samuel Sheath re-created this beautiful memory for his girlfriend in full isometric fashion.
  5. Mark Knight explored the world of architectural visualization using a mix of vector and pixel painting to design a modern flat.
  6. Kenze Wee conveyed a quiet, lonely moment with a man overlooking a cityscape.
  7. Kevin Rob recreated his office space which included our favorite choice of fuel: a good old fashioned cup of coffee.
  8. Javier Corzo illuminated the streets with his home.
