My Approach – After reviewing various media and arriving at the images found on the following inspiration palette, One image…top row, second from the right…became a key element in my design. The Da Cheng Design Co., Fuzhau, China, utilized the Chinese concept of the courtyard house in the design of pitched roof volumes for meeting rooms and creative director offices. The pitched roof became a key design element in this project and is a play, on both my surname, Roof, and my firm name under1roof design. This choice provided the opportunity to expand my Revit skillset in creating the roof and ceiling elements as, in this project, the offices of the Principal Architect, the Principal Designer, and the Theatre are all housed in pitched roof volumes.
