Here are some of the tools and resources that I have developed to aid in communicating design concepts and organizing project research materials. The BIMx Demo is a 3D design exploration experience on your smart phone (iOS or Android.) Houzz Private Workshop is a sample Houzz Ideabook illustrating how images are collected and organized for use by the entire design team. Using these tools, every team member stays up to date on the most current project information.
I developed VRchitecture as a better way to communicate. It provides you a unique and realistic experience of your home long before the shovels hit the ground. This experience is unique in the industry and puts the design in the palm of your hand, or at least on your tablet or smartphone. Architects who only use architectural drawings are asking you to learn a foreign language. Worse they are asking you to make life-changing decisions without having the full picture. We live our lives in 3D, don't accept less for the design of your home.
Communication is key. When we design homes, the language is visual to ensure that everyone shares a common vision. The challenge is how to share images and communicate about those images effectively amongst the entire design and build team. I use a dedicated and shareable workspace for every project to ensure that we are all on the same page. This is not only a source for great ideas, but also a place for us to share our own great ideas. We can discuss and sketch directly on the concept images for clarity.Let's Collaborate
