Importance of Detailing*

Details that make a difference. Roger Downing & Partner

With all advances in technology, as architects, we all still rely strongly on our ability to sketch. Therefore the most traditional tool of them all is the architect's pencil.
Traditional detailing and the contemporary use or adaptation today are still as important as they were in yesteryear. With all buildings, their success or failure often comes down to the smallest details. It is incredibly difficult to describe these in words alone, therefore we fall on our skill of drawing to convey this. These detail, however small, are extremely important to the outcome of every project.
