As an Architect or designer you can spend most of your time working on ideas for buildings such as offices, apartments, hospitals and even airport terminals.

Since everything is very visual it is important to have the space to work on ideas without the fear of running out of space. Whiteboards and flip-charts certainly won’t work.

Why not try functional paints and wallcoverings instead? Keep reading below and see some examples of how architects can use these products.

Helps Architects Explore Ideas

It starts with an idea.

Architects are usually provided a brief of the kind of building their client is looking for but from then it is up to them to provide the visuals.

So how do you do it? We’ve already eliminated flip-charts and whiteboards. Why not try writable surfaces instead?

With whiteboard paint it is possible to transform walls and desks into complete writable areas for exploring ideas. You will be able to explore initial ideas, without wasting a bit of paper, and can make them as large or as small as they wish.

Even if you make a mistake, or want to begin again with a fresh idea all you have to do is wipe the wall clean. Then you can simply begin again until they find an idea they like.

Get Better At Project Planning

Functional walls aren’t only for design though, you can be part of the whole project planning process.

With a whiteboard wallcovering or whiteboard paint, you can keep track of all the steps in their work process. From formulating the original idea to project completion.

You can even use it to keep track of each job you have completed as you go, simply crossing it out on your surface.


Double Functionalities

You can also take advantage of the benefits that multiple functionality surfaces can have.

Choose whiteboard and magnetic or why not projection and whiteboard? You can even have a combination of all three.
You can project digital images up onto their walls and write up any changes around it. That way instead of staring into a small computer screen you can see the whole design displayed. It’s a much better way to make edits.

Or take advantage of a magnetic whiteboard wall to keep track of all important project documents. You won’t need to be kept in a file or drawer. They’ll be right there on the wall.

There are so many ways a double functionality wall can really benefit an architect.

Overall functional surfaces as great for visual thinkers, such as architects and designers, and can really make a difference to the way you work.

If you’re an architect or designer why not try out functional surfaces for yourself?
