Two Takes on Modern Design
March 7 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PST
ALL MEMBERS – San Francisco Bay Area-based firm DNM Architecture is known for creating captivating spaces often with a modern perspective. During this ARCHICAD In-Practice webinar principal David Marlatt will share his design and development process through two projects: a Minimalist Modern home in Palm Springs and an Urban LEED Platinum 5-story residence in San Francisco.
David will discuss how his firm approaches a project starting with design development. He will share the tools and methods they use to evaluate LEED and Net Zero buildings. In regards to communication, David will show how BIMx is used to engage the client. Plus, he will illustrate how they blend 3D images with construction documents to explain design intent to the trades.
David Marlatt, Principal, DNM Architecture –
David Marlatt graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1982 with an M.ARCH and began practicing in Atlanta with Taylor+Williams Architects where his houses and multi-family projects won national awards and publication. After a few detours David started DNM Architecture in 1999. Working throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, DNM Architecture, offers a full range of architectural services from planning and programming through design, documentation and construction administration. Pushing the envelope of architectural practice and technology, the firm uses intelligent 3D CAD software to communicate with clients, translate early designs seamlessly into construction documents and manage design changes without disrupting the building process. The firm’s integrated approach not only improves the final design, but produces final drawings faster and more accurately than more traditional methods.
