The winner of the Drafting Excellence Award has provided drawings that represent an ability to communicate a commercial context to a residential project. The requirement for provision of information in a project of this nature is quite complex and extensive, needing to be conveyed by clarity of vision for all end users.

Drafting excellence is quite sincerely being able to communicate architecture in all its complexities to those who will be affected by the outcomes: clients, consultants, builders and so on. The drawings provided here prove that this can be carried out in a professional manner while maintaining an impression of the aesthetic visuals that are needed to appease the naked eye.

Drawings are not only a selling tool, but a tool for engagement in a project that, once approved, will ultimately become a built-form. In the process of this journey, information provided incorrectly can lead to serious problems.

The winner here has shown the skills and abilities to display and contextualise information in a format that is fluid yet structured, complex yet easy to understand, visually engaging without overtly artistic.

The Drafting Excellence Award has a very deserved winner.
