Step 3: Export to Photoshop
Export the designs and photoshop the 3 different configurations into the 1 chosen interior.

Step 4: Publish on Archello
Upload your project by publishing your design on Archello. Publish your project on Archello and place the 3 design images in 1 project publication. Add the tag: “USMFlexibleModularInteriors” (without the “”).

The designs will be judged by the clever use of modular design and optimized potential for adaptability.
