1 INTD 50A floor plan considerations

2 floor plans two-dimensional layout of rooms
scaled (1/4 inch = 1 foot) drawing showing: less detail than the blueprints used by all trades people drawn for each floor level of a structure

3 shows: exterior and interior walls size and location of windows and doors

4 shows: size and location of windows and doors built-in cabinets and appliances

5 shows: built-in cabinets and appliances permanent fixtures stairs and fireplaces

6 shows: porches, patios, and decks room names and approximate sizes

7 used to: judge space dimensions in a room determine architectural detail placement in a room study suitability to lifestyles create a decorating plan

8 three main areas of the home
living/social—includes the living room, dining room, family or recreation room, hobby rooms, study, library, etc… sleeping/quiet—includes bedrooms, bathrooms and dressing areas service/work—includes kitchen, clothes care center, utility room, basement, and garage

9 storage considerations
storage space needs to be adequate—10-15% of the home should be convenient and easily accessible should be incorporated throughout the entire home

10 storage types built-in—cannot be moved around the room, an architectural detail of the room cupboards, closets, pantries, etc….

11 storage types furniture—moveable from one room to another
desks, chests, dressers, trunks, armoires, etc…

12 participation activity: storage types
…using interior design magazines, find two examples of built-in storage and two examples of furniture storage—each example must represent a different option (i.e…you cannot have two images of kitchen cabinets for your built-in examples) …tear out each of the four examples and write notations on the page that state: the category (built-in or furniture) the type (cupboards, pantry, desk) where it could be used …staple your four pages with notations together & hand them in

13 traffic & circulation patterns
circulation is the route that people follow as they move from one place to another in the home generally 3-4 feet of space should be allowed for circulation paths

14 traffic & circulation patterns
circulation frequency refers to the number of times a route is repeated in any given period of time generally routes with high circulation frequency are short and direct in a good floor plan

15 types of circulation family—follows each member of the household throughout home; most complex

16 types of circulation work—kitchen is generally the hub of work circulation work triangle: route between the sink, refrigerator, and range should not exceed 22 feet in length what other rooms do we work in?

17 types of circulation service—relates to the movement of people in and out of the home as they make service calls, deliver goods, read meters, take garbage out, etc…

18 types of circulation guest—involves movement from the entry to the coat closet and to the living room with access to a powder room

19 room relationships dictate how functional a space will be examples:
dining area adjacent to the living room for convenience in entertaining

20 room relationships dictate how functional a space will be examples:
kitchen should be adjacent to the dining room for ease in serving food

21 room relationships dictate how functional a space will be examples:
bathrooms should be located close to bedrooms for convenience and privacy

22 effective circulation guidelines
rooms should not be cut in half due to circulation paths related rooms are close together

23 effective circulation guidelines
bathrooms should be located next to bedrooms locate the kitchen near the garage and service entrance

24 effective circulation guidelines
high frequency routes are short and simple excessive hall space is avoided

25 types of floor plans to consider
closed floor plan—separate rooms enclosed by walls with an entry door benefits: noise reduction, privacy drawbacks: costly, breaks up space to make it appear smaller

26 types of floor plans to consider
open floor plan—few separating walls benefits—saves cost of building material, home tends to appear more spacious drawbacks—no privacy, noise levels

27 floor plan evaluation should include:
areas/zones traffic and circulation patterns sizes and shapes of rooms use and function of rooms useable wall space (not broken up with windows and doors) storage consideration 

28 floor plan evaluation
