Facade / Elevation designing
The facade of the building is the most important aspect from the design standpoint as it sets the tone for the rest of the building. The elevation of a building portrays its individual side. The facade is the communication or connection between the inside of a building to the outside. A well executed elevation should be not just pleasant to look at but also be able to adapt to the changing seasons of the area where it is located. In commercial buildings the facade design forms some major part of the look and feel of the building and is directly related to the footfalls in the building. There are other important aspects to be kept in mind while designing a facade like to reduce heat gain and insure that artificial light is required on a minimum basis.
