Chapter 9

Ceilings and Interiors

Now that the exterior shell is up and the rooms are basically laid out, it is time to start considering the interiors. As it stands, you have a bunch of rooms with the same wall finish, the same floor finish, and no ceilings to speak of. The restrooms don’t have any fixtures, and the other rooms are going to be useless without furniture.

Another issue is that you don’t have any separate views such as furniture plans or finish plans. This chapter dives into all of these items—and then some!

In this chapter, you will learn about:

  • Creating ceilings
  • Creating ceiling openings and soffits
  • Adding interior design
  • Adding alternate floor materials

Creating Ceilings

Placing a ceiling is quite easy; the hard part is finding the view in which to do it. As you have probably noticed, the Project Browser is divided into categories. The categories for plans are Floor Plans and Ceiling Plans. Whereas floor plans show the views standing at that level looking down, ceiling plans show the view standing at that level looking up. In the Autodesk® Revit® Architecture platform, you are looking at a true reflected ceiling plan.
