Life’s a Beach, Designing Beach Homes in ARCHICAD

Tuesday, November 17th, 2015

Todd Miller of QMA Architects & Planners – a long-time ARCHICAD user and architect based in New Jersey – is currently designing a Key West Style Beach house in Ventnor, NJ. Miller took some time out from his schedule of creating custom residential projects to explain how he uses ARCHICAD to create his designs and why he feels it is important to stay current with ARCHICAD.

“We went from hand drawing right into ARCHICAD, and dabbled with other programs while working in other offices. When I went to school, the CAD system was keypunch based. Taking advantage of all the new technology – the architect in me loves the new rendering engines, high quality renderings – without all the tweaking saves so much time.”

Miller, working side by side with his wife, licensed architect Jeannette Quon, adds that he enjoys the freedom ARCHICAD gives him to be able to add details to his design through his modeling software. During client meetings, he takes care to spend ample time with his clients to determine their wants, needs, goals, and aspirations for the home. Throughout the 35 years Miller has been practicing, including the last 25 as principal of QMA, he reports good success with that process. Since adopting ARCHICAD back at version 4.5 some twenty years ago, Miller has relied on the actual model and high quality renderings to demonstrate design intent and scope.
