What should be in a design project?

The designer does not create pictures. The designer creates an environment for a comfortable life.

Of course, in every project there is an idea, a visual image. And in order to convey it, we are modeling the space in a 3D model and making renders.

Having visualizations, the designer can better understand the client, equally imagine what result we strive for.

Also with renderings it is more convenient to explain to the foreman that we expect from him.

But the pictures are just the tip of the iceberg. A really good repair result depends on the detailed drawings. And now I will show you on the example of our project why it is important.

We noticed that on the construction site, the contractors unfold the design project and each specialist hires his own letter and may miss something important that is on another letter.

That's why we divided the project into sections - a separate section for installers, a separate section for plumbers, a separate section for electricians, etc. We put all the sections in the order in which the work is performed: first the installation of walls, then plumbing and floor heating, then electricity, false ceiling, finishings, and so on. So each specialist takes his own section and works with it.

So let's go in order.

Land plan

1. House location plan

If we are talking about the project of a private house, it is very important to show its location on the land, the location of other elements (pool, utility area, garden, terrace, etc.) and show the general plan of the plot with heights.

2. Irrigation plan

Of course, designers may not know all the details of caring for every plant. But it is enough to show water supply points and indicate the type of plants. And already on the basis of these data landscape designers competently calculate the dosage of water and fertilizer.

3. Electricity plan

It is very important to show a plan of lighting the area and facades of the house. Lighting group switching plan. Also, if necessary, a plan for heating sidewalks and gutters.

House plan

1. Installation plan

There should be a section with installation of walls and partitions (at reconstruction also the plan of dismantling).

2. Floorplan

Of course we show all the sizes of furniture, widths of passages. We specify models of factory furniture and assembly sizes of furniture of individual production. Be sure to show the door opening plan. This is very important so that we can avoid situations where the door prevents each other from opening. We show the opening of the door in floorplan, so that you can immediately see the full picture.

3. Plumbing plan

After installing the walls, plumbers lay pipes. Therefore, in the plumbing section of the project, we show not only all plumbing fixtures, but also their installation diagrams and connection points for water supply and drainage pipes.
