Casa Magayon & the LIVE Model

Roderick Anderson, Firm Principal and Design Director
Event Type:

ALL MEMBERS – The Casa Magayon project from Sarco Architects has won the “5-Star Best Architecture Single Residence Costa Rica 2016” award by the International Property Awards. The project is located in the Península Papagayo Resort, Guanacaste, Costa Rica and is a tropical interpretation of the classic “Glass House” by Philip Johnson.

We will review the project which was modeled entirely using ARCHICAD, from its initial concept; the entire 2D documentation process was generated from the “live” ARCHICAD model, with absolutely no content drawn in 2D. During the process, MEP was also incorporated to model the air conditioning and storm drains to confirm that there were no collisions. All the built-in furniture is modeled entirely in ARCHICAD, with the assistance of the Cadimage Cabinets tool and BIMx was used as an essential communication tool with the client during the construction process and on site.
