Dylan Chappell Architects added this to The ABCs of CAD
Easier Presentation of Multiple IdeasI was talking recently with a homeowner contemplating a home remodel. She said she really liked the idea of hiring multiple designers so she could have several options — an idea she got from a design TV show. But the truth is, you should never have to hire three separate architects to get multiple designs. CAD allows an architect to present and explore multiple options with a few quick keystrokes. This image shows eight potential floor plans for the same project. Eight configurations are a lot to present to a client, but this shows what's possible. Most architects would present the three most promising variations and then come up with more based on the client's feedback.
John Hill added this to Plan
Floor plans are extremely important tools that help architects work out alternative schemes. What happens if the stair moves? Or if the kitchen is a galley instead of an L shape? With CAD (computer-aided drafting), it's easier than ever to work out a myriad of alternatives.
