We usually make drawings for three distinct reasons- for client presentations, to study and work on the design and, for communicating the design intent to the site we produce comprehensive construction documents. Over the years we’ve been fortunate to work with some wonderfully talented craftsmen and we’ve tweaked our own drawing methods to get the most out of them. Instead of the dry and ‘set in stone’ kind of good for construction drawings, we’ve started using a combination of all three methods and techniques to instigate conversations on site. For this project, we’ve used a detailed axonometric to show the different elements coming together, including details like the terrazzo flooring with brass spacers and how it responds to site conditions as does the cabinetry and other furniture. This when read in conjunction with the details and instructions often conveys to the craftsmen on site a more comprehensive idea of the project and their contribution is correspondingly more involved and nuanced.
