We "Architects at Kedalla" defined
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.
It's our job to help you define what you want to build, present architectural designs you might never have considered, and help you get the most for your valuable investment. We don't just design four walls and a roof, we create total environments, both interiors and exteriors, that are functional and exciting places to live in.
The planning of your project starts here. Working together with our architect, you will share your project needs, dreams and goals.
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.
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.
When the design concepts have been decided, the architect prepares working drawings and specifications. These are required to obtain building permits and bids, and to guide the contractor in construction.
Our architect will advise you on your choice of contractor – usually done by calling for competitive bids. Your architect will help evaluate the bids and select the contractor, and prepare the contract between you and the contractor.
Our architect will consult with you and advise you during construction. On-site visits will determine if construction is proceeding in general accordance with the contract, and that the design, materials, and workmanship meet with acceptable standards.
project management, feasibility studies, site selection, building condition audits, programming, interior design, renderings and promotional materials, full time site representation, multiple contract preparation etc...
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
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.
An architectural drawing is a technical drawing, visually communicating how something functions or is constructed, of a building or a building project.
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.
A site plan shows the boundaries of property and nearby structures relevant to the architecture design.
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.
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.
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 show a small part of the construction at a larger scale. A detailed drawing also shows how the component parts fit together.
“We find beauty not in the thing itself but in the patterns of shadows, the light and the darkness, that one thing against another creates.”
