To get a sense of the front composition, quantitatively determined by PHPP, and qualitatively determined by spatial and light qualities, I render it (using Podium, a SketchUp plug-in):
Our next step would be to move into ArchiCad, our "virtual building" program that is an integrated 3d parametric model with 2d document creation, where we generate all plans, details, schedules, etc.
