Architectural design using Sketchup
SketchUP - intuitive 3D modeling tool accelerates design and architecture tasks, enabling architects to generate exceptional designs in the context of modest budgets and found a niche in Architecture design profession. Google SketchUp makes communicating design ideas easy and enables clients to visualize and explore their future homes before they are ever built.
We use SketchUp as a tool to work in your architectural design process and to create anyone’s dreamhouse. Architects can move a wall, or adjust the pitch of a roof, and interactively adjust an entire project in Google SketchUp.
For perhaps most architects, design is plan oriented. With the help of SketchUP models can quickly be made from plans.
From determining a project's overall massing to optimizing fenestration patterns and siting for the position of the sun, SketchUp helps architects explore options early enough to make a real difference.
SketchUp's powerful shadow engine allows architectures to understand how daylighting, shading and passive solar issues are impacted by their design decisions – in real time.
Architects also use SketchUp to help clients visualize green features such as solar panels, rainwater catchment systems, sustainable landscaping and building material options that will serve to reduce the environment footprint of their buildings.
Architects can use SketchUp to apply different finishes and materials to the home from a set of pre-selected green and low-maintenance options.
There are building components, such as windows and doors if you are drawing the architecture of a house. In addition, interior components are also available and you can apply materials for textures.
SketchUP collaborate with architectural design teams to develop sustainable design solutions related to environmental quality, materials, resource and energy efficiency , shadow settings, geographical location, solar orientation , building orientation, fenestration pattern, shading device form and placement, climate-responsive design.
SketchUp can be termed as a digital architectural rendering tool as there are several rendering options for shading and outlines that generally emulate hand-drawn architectural rendering techniques. The shadow palette provides realtime shadows with parameters for month and time of day. Architects can slide the time of day setting and watch the shadows of a structure travel over the surface much like time-lapse photography.
SketchUp renderings are easily transferred to Vectorworks, and can provide the basis for a final "hard design.
