Doug Patt: Hi, I am Doug Patt and this is how to draw like an architect series Part 2. An elevation is the depiction of a building as viewed from one side, as if it were flattened down. The architect uses the elevation as a means to describing a building. Final elevations can be drawn once the floor plans have been completed. Here, using CAD, parallel and perpendicular lines can be drawn from the floor plan to a location, where the ground plane and finished floor heights had been designated. This is where the elevation will be drawn. These lines represent the location of things like the corners of the building, windows, doors or other elements of the side.
Using these lines and the locations of finished floors along with framing details and desired roof pitch, the elevations can developed. Any elevation will go through a number of changes before its finalized. An elevation and working drawings will typically appear as a simple line drawing with notes. An elevation that’s used for purposes of presentation could be much more dressed up and include things like color, shadow or even background. This is one of the elevations for the first floor plan shown in part 1. Even though I haven’t completely worked out the second and third floor plans, I want ahead did further design work by developing the composition in elevation.
This building is pretty close to a shingle style home and it incorporates one of my favorite aspects of the famous mansion called Crack Side in Massachusetts. The driveway goes right through the house. You can see the garage beyond in this elevation. Shingle style homes are also well known for of course their wood shingles for sorts.
Steep roof pitch. These are seen at the lower series. Flaired shingle for side details and complex for plans and elevations. This design also incorporates some of the stick style, which along with the shingle style proved out of The Queen Anne styles in 19th century. In the upcoming episode we will look at a detailed wall section. See you next time.
