We're thrilled to showcase the talents of another Vectorworks user. In this new video, Karen Lewis discusses how office trends and meaningful materials impact the projects she creates as an interior designer at The M Group Architects & Interior Architects in Reston, Virginia (USA). The 17-person firm is sought after by building owners and corporate and industrial clients for office building architecture and interiors, as well as by government contractors and agencies for mission-critical and secure design. Their work varies from 5,000-square-foot tenant spaces to building complexes totaling one million square feet.
Step inside the offices of M Group Architects & Interior Architects as Michael Timcheck and Karen Lewis share the firm's philosophy and scope of work, discuss how their workspace enables collaborative design, and reflect on how they create spaces that elevate how their clients do business. Timcheck also describes how OpenGL walkthroughs, workgroup referencing, and working in 3D with BIM in Vectorworks Architect software informs the firm's designs and leads to a better result.
