mid-century modern facade makeover-flippin it over

once the design is approved, there is an important next step-other than to celebrate!

documenting design is a unique art. as the author of the project, the documents not only tell the story of the design, but also a guide and a step-by-step assembly of instructions. To do this, you have to know how the project will be put together and then disassemble it and bring it all together in a series of plans, elevations, sections and details.

trace paper is a great way to rough out the process. i start with a quick sketch of the structure I want to document and then i typically like to “build” on paper, almost like a “flip-book” and then separate them into instructions.

the below is what i did for this project. hope it helps explain the process.


floating walls

Crest Architects

An introverted open plan layout has been adopted to create a seamless flow of spaces and to ensure connectivity across the floors. Designed around two landscaped courtyards, the building program is spread across three floors consisting of a parking area, formal and informal living, an open kitchen and dining, five bedrooms, a study and a semi-open terrace with a kitchenette. Both the courtyards have been strategically designed with skylights to bring in maximum light.


walden house

Formative Architects

There is no space as room in this house. All of space on the 1st floor have organic form and structure, also they are opened toward the courtyard. The yard is a background which includes expanding all function of this house and a space which plays a centripetal part. Entire space connecting kitchen – entrance – living room is opening toward courtyard, thus all space are bright and warm also are interconnected compactly with courtyard visually and spatially.
