DC-based Architecture and interior design firm, FORMA Design, Inc. has been using ARCHICAD for many years and recently received both the International Interior Design Association (IIDA) and an AIA  Award for the firm’s work on the CA+LC/CWS Plastic Surgery Clinic.

The entire design for the project was created in ARCHICAD 21. FORMA Design used a combination of ARCHICAD, CineRender and the Award-Winning presentation app from GRAPHISOFT, BIMx, to present concepts to their client throughout the approval process. Concepts are first demonstrated through a combination of printed plans, perspectives and axonometric views in CineRender by Maxon. BIM walkthroughs happen through ARCHICAD and as a finale, the firm brings out BIMx with VR capabilities.

Juan Gutierrez, FORMA associate explains, “ARCHICAD allowed FORMA Design to develop the design in the 3D model and explain to the client every detail in a walk-through of the space, during the Design Development phase, and finally in a Virtual Reality tour, at the end of the design process. During this time, we addressed and resolved issues before going to the construction phase, that made the Construction Administration much smoother.”

According to Gutierrez, interior design benefits greatly from working in 3D since it transfers an intense level of reality to the renderings and helps clients visualize what the final product will look like.

“We have been presenting all of our projects in 3D for more than a decade. ARCHICAD helped us create and sell the design for this project to the client. What you see in our ARCHICAD model is very close to the actual photos.”

Congratulations to FORMA Design, Inc. on these prestigious awards!
