Real scale drawings enable us to simply take a stroll through our projects, even before they are built.

The ability to visualize the unbuilt is an important part of the architectural profession: Both in order to evaluate – and communicate concepts and solutions. However, the bodily sensation of scale or the notion of simply walking through a room cannot be experienced through traditional 3D visualizations or scaled models.

Architecture is not an abstract geometrical size, but something concrete that relates to our bodily existence and the world around us.

We therefore conduct real scale drawings in our backyard to ensure a greater understanding of size and proportions in our projects. This enable us to simply take a stroll through our projects and get a sense of dimensions and spatial sequences, – even before they are built.
