Abstract: This paper describes the initial work done in developing a modelling environment which captures both functional and spatial aspects of a building, abstract and detailed descriptions, and the intent behind the decisions and results. The model is able to represent the physical objects comprising a building, the functional systems and subsystems made up of these physical objects, the spatial aspects of the structure, and the functional and spatial relationships between the various components of the structure.
