ARCHITECTURE

Our Architects in Sri Lanka


We "Architects at Kedalla" defined Architecture as the art and science of designing buildings and structures. A wider definition would include within this scope the design of any built environment, structure or object, from town planning, urban design, and landscape architecture to furniture and objects. It could also be defined as the manipulation of shapes, forms, space and light to change our environment.

Our strong technical knowledge in the fields of engineering, geometry, building techniques, functional design and ergonomics simplifies doing architecture.
Today, however, the broad scope of construction, the demand for a wide array of different structures and the general tendency to specialization, very present in the construction field, have resulted in architecture being often divided in several different specializations.

Project Inception

The planning of your project starts here. Working together with our architect, you will share your project needs, dreams and goals.

Schematic Design

During this stage our architect will begin by preparing preliminary design sketches based on your requirements and budget to explore and illustrate possible options. The architect will review these options with you, pointing out the merits and responding to your input.

Design Development

This stage refines the agreed upon schematic design for a clearer definition of the scope and quality of the finished project. Further cost projections will determine how closely the design conforms to the budget expectations, or what, if any, adjustments are required.

The Art and Science of Architecture

The soul of architecture is to design a structure that will be suited for humans to live in, work in, play in, etc. It is also to give comfort to its users -- to make them feel comfortable, make them feel uplifted, make them feel that someone cared about their well-being enough to design something that they would enjoy. We, "Architects" does more than just design buildings -- we understands how our cliets' surroundings make them feel, and creates an environment that will meet their needs and desires

What is Architectural Engineering?

Architectural engineering is a relatively new licensed profession, emerging in the 20th century as a result of the rapid technology advancement of the Industrial Revolution. Architectural engineers are the engineers that specialize in making buildings. This is a particularly important profession today, since our world is immersed in two major technological revolutions, (1) that of rapidly advancing computer-technology, and (2) the parallel revolution arising from the need to create a sustainable planet. Architectural engineers are at the forefront of both historical opportunities.

What is an Architectural Drawing?

An architectural drawing is a technical drawing, visually communicating how something functions or is constructed, of a building or a building project.

Types of Architectural Drawings
  • Floor Plan

A Floor Plan shows the arrangement at a particular level of a building with a view from above. The spaces in building is also shown similar to a map.

  • Site Plan

A site plan shows the boundaries of property and nearby structures relevant to the architecture design.

  • Elevation

An Elevation is the view of a building as recognized from one side. This view is described as the external appearance of a building.

Architects use the word elevation as a synonym for façade. When an architects speaks about the north elevation it means that they are talking about the north-facing wall of the building.

  • Cross Section

A cross section shows a vertical plane cut through an object and Sections are used to describe the connection between different levels of a building.

  • Isometric and axonometric projections

Three dimensional objects, showing elements on scale and the relationship between various sides of the same object in order to understand the complexities of a shape is used to represent Isometric and axonometric projections.

  • Detail Drawings

Detail drawings show a small part of the construction at a larger scale. A detailed drawing also shows how the component parts fit together.

What Is Architectural Design?
Architectural design is a concept that focuses on components or elements of a structure. An architect is generally the one in charge of the architectural design. They work with space and elements to create a coherent and functional structure.
What Is Involved In The Design Process?
There are several steps involved in the design process for an architectural project. Each step is very important to the overall look, feel, and safety of the project.The steps are as follows:
Schematic Design
The first step of the design phase is the schematic design. The schematic design is where the architect gathers information on the needs, style, and wants for the project and from there the he will create two to three design options for the client to review.
Design Development
In the design development, the architect will take the schematic designs and develop them to an approved design concept. Any changes the client wants to make to the design should be communicated to the architect during this phase.
Construction Documents
Construction documents are given to a contractor for the construction of your project. An architect will put together drawings with a lot of detail on them for the contractors to follow when building.
Bidding
Bidding is when the architect or client seeks a contractor for their project. They bid the job to the contractor by giving them bid documents which display details of the project. These documents include construction documents and technical specifications.
Construction
Construction begins once you’ve found a contractor you like, and you’ve settled on a design concept that fits your needs. Your architect will be in contact with your contractor throughout the duration of the construction phase to ensure that your project is being built according to the plans.
