Architectural drawings are unquestionably a crucial element in the planning process and for building regulation details but it is equally important that they provide the means for a home owner to envisage proposed design ideas. We believe the drawings we produce not only have to be technically correct but also must be easy to understand so our clients – even those not used to looking at architectural drawings – understand the ideas that the drawings represent.
Architectural elements have various properties such as colour, texture, material or size and the challenge for professionals and home owners alike is how to assess those qualities whilst viewing drawings. This information either must be readily visible in the drawings or the person looking needs to have the imagination to envisage what the finished result will look like. Traditionally, the challenge in creating easily-readable drawings is that the more details are added, the more cluttered the drawings get so essential aspects cannot be easily seen.
Ecclesall Design addresses the limitations of the traditional drawing style by offering not only 2D line drawings but also 3D modelling drawings. While both of these drawing types are completely suitable for planning and building regulations purposes there are significant differences between them. In this page we are going to look at these two types in more detail so you can make the right choice for your project.
