ACRES ARCHITECTS: MULTIPLE AWARD-WINNING, RIBA CHARTERED ARCHITECTS AT THE FOREFRONT OF RESIDENTIAL ARCHITECTURE
Sketching is a key skill in the world of Architecture and is one that can be extremely valuable. In one of our latest videos, some of the production team talk about how sketching can help them in their work, and why they sometimes prefer it.
Sketching is a much quicker and more fluid way of creating a design. Through creating a sketch with clients, and talking it through, designs can be easily amended, and clients can have a more direct input into their design. On paper, you can draw whatever you want, quickly and easily, however on a computer, using software such as AutoCAD or Revit, you are more limited to the types of things you can draw. Moreover, sketches can be easily edited in minutes, rather than the hours it may take on a computer.
In Architecture, the designer often goes through lots of different designs and amendments before coming up with the final design. When sketching this can be easily done and a clear record of the different stages of the design can be kept.
Furthermore, sometimes sketching is the easiest way to get ideas down onto paper and the best way to visualise them. By sketching your designs, and getting your thoughts onto paper, it can often help to inspire you and keep your creativity flowing.
At Acres, we like to use a variety of different methods to update our designs and keep up to date with the latest technologies. Whether we are sketching out designs, or creating them through BIM software, our team will always be on hand to make your vision a reality.
