summary The purpose of this paper is to present a method to apply finishes to walls to meet the different modelling requirements in a computer-aided environment for architectural design. The method is applicable to wall finishes which are directly applied. The method considers wall and finish as two architectural components, instead of one. Advantages and disadvantages of integrated and differentiated approaches are compared based on the definition of building components, the number of the combinative variety of walls and finishes, the possibility of design inspection, the availability of applications, the stages involved in design, the management of the database, the process regarding drawing production, and the working process of creating and joining new types of walls at the same location. Although both components are usually applied in an integrated manner in most applications, this paper concludes that the number of combinations may become so large that finish and wall have to be defined separately in order to provide flexibility in assigning different depths and applying various materials. An application method is illustrated.
