Sketching Design Ideas

Sketching Design Ideas

A great part of an Architects job is sketching design ideas at the early stages of a project. Sketching is such a fluid way to design, quickly explore, test and reject ideas. Whilst it is something we are seeing less from graduates generally it is a skill that we really try to encourage at Thinking Buildings. This sketch is taken from a new project to extend a lovely Grade 2 listed property in an Oxfordshire village – the sketch is intended to be soft and minimal to emphasise the shapes of existing and new forms. These type of sketches are often better received by Conservation Officers where CAD and rendered images can appear somewhat brash and jarring – we will let you know how we get on……..
