ARCHITECTURAL DRAWINGS

V. Ryan 2002 - 2009

 

When designing the exterior of a house it is very important to keep the design simple and precise. Only a limited number of colours should be used as the detail should be seen in the line drawing. The drawing opposite is a typical detached house with a built in garage. It has been drawn to give the customer an idea of the size and scale of the design. It is possible that a customer will want some changes or even a completely new design. For this reason much of the detail to be found in a final architectural drawing is missing as this would take much longer to produce.

Short notes would normally be added to initial designs.

Below is a plan view (birds-eye view) of the ground floor. The rooms are easily identified and at this point there is no need to include furniture. Again, this is because the customer my want a change in the layout to the floor. Notice the how the walls, doors, windows and stairway are drawn.

 

 

 

 

 
1. Design a small house and drawing as if facing the front (rather like the drawing above)

2. Draw the plan of the ground floor adding explanatory notes if necessary.

   

The next stage in presenting a architectural design to a client/customer is to select one or two rooms (there is no need to draw the entire plan) and add pieces of furniture. The furniture should also be drawn as if seen from above (plan view). Select furniture that the customer/client would like to see. For example, if designing an office draw furniture that represents computer desks, storage space, filing cabinets etc....

In the example below the dining room now has a dining table and four chairs. Two comfortable chairs with two seated people have been added to give the client/customer an idea of the overall size of the room.

 
   
   

3. Select a room from the plan of the ground floor you designed and draw a separate plan and this time include suitable furniture.

4. Below are some examples of simple furniture. Draw four examples of furniture suitable for a different type of room. For example, if you chose a dining room in question 3 this time select an office and design furniture for it.
