“Archicad-Twinmotion Direct Link is like a happy marriage!”
Brisbane-based Elevation Architecture has been using Archicad since version 6.5, and they’ve been “stuck with the best architectural software on the market” since then. Recently, they started using Archicad-Twinmotion Direct Link to transform their BIM models into an immersive VR experience for their clients.
Business owner Greg Adsett says: “It’s a terrific value-add with a two-fold benefit. First, we gain a deeper insight into the project ourselves – even though we’re utilizing 3D within Archicad all the time, Twinmotion allows us to go in and experience everything more fully, so we can ‘feel’ the space. From a design perspective, that’s great.”
Case Study: Restoring Croatia’s Church of St. Martin with the help of Archicad and BIMx
Foretić Architects recently worked on the restoration and renovation of the Church of St. Martin, located in the small town of Martin Breg, Prozorje/ Dugo Selo, Croatia. State-of-the-art Building Information Modeling software, Archicad and BIMx, were used to combine old and new 3D models of the church. The first step of the restoration project is a virtual walk and an exploration of the 3D model with a thematic booklet.
The ruins of the church are a protected cultural monument, listed in the Republic of Croatia’s Registry of Cultural Property. The goal of the project is to revitalize the entire area from a tourism point of view.

Fighting the Pandemic with Architecture: Emergency Modules in Argentina
A group of SMEs in Argentina (Barza, Idero, Grupo TRG, Miyagui and Patio Desarrollos SA) have launched a campaign to donate emergency modules to hospitals and other healthcare facilities for people affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Each 93 m2 high quality medical “Emergency Module” hosts 10 beds and serve as patient reception spaces to rapidly increase the capacity for initial care and orientation, and allow the addition of beds for patients who do not need respirators. Once the crisis is over, the modules can be reused as classrooms or primary care rooms in underprivileged neighborhoods. The expandable and transportable modules were designed to operate with minimal energy consumption.
The project design and documentation was done by IDERO Arquitectura of Argentina, using ARCHICAD and BIMx, with the integration of the structural model made in Tekla Structures; the modules can be built in about 38 hours.

Singapore Case Study: Wholistic Design Solutions by Goy Architects, with ARCHICAD
Goy Architects are committed to presenting their clients with wholistic design solutions — regardless of the project — from architecture to interior design and furnishings. They believe it’s key to visually update their clients during the design process for feedback. This way, the architects are able to sync or fully achieve the client’s design goals and requirements.
Goy Architects recently won Lookbox Design Awards in several categories with their “Shizukokoro” and “The Heng House” projects.
