Communicating design concepts effectively is a key aspect of an architect’s job. Opinder Liddar explores the ways your plans can be presented to help you visualise the living spaces and achieve the house you really want
These images show the progression of a self build scheme by Strom Architects, from initial concept design stage right through to completion. The first drawings were put together by hand. Sketchup was then used to develop the plans for the house in order to present a coherent design strategy to the client. The CGI imagery was outsourced to a specialist

If one thing’s certain when it comes to designing your dream home, it’s that you will be investing plenty of time and emotion into the project. Getting the scheme through planning, controlling costs and managing trades on site are just a few of the hurdles that you’ll encounter before completion – so you’d hope that the result will be exactly what you envisioned.
