Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Space Planning for Commercial Office Interiors provides a thorough and engaging look at the entire process of space planning, from meeting the client for the first time to delivering a beautifully rendered and creative space plan that addresses all of that clients needs. The author takes readers through a step-by-step method that includes establishing client requirements, developing and translating ideas into design concepts, drafting layouts, and ultimately combining these layouts into well-organized, effective floor plans replete with offices, workstations, support rooms, and reception areas. Covering issues such as circulation, spatial and square footage calculations, building codes, adaptation to exterior architecture, ceiling systems, barrier-free designs, and LEED requirements along the way, the text presents all of the key principles, processes, and tasks associated with laying out interior space to optimize the health, safety, and wellness of its occupants. Thoughtfully organized, with useful exercises to help the reader master the entire process and lessons that can be applied to all types of designed interiors, this book is an indispensable learning tool for intermediate-level students in interior design, architecture, facilities management, and construction management as well as professional designers and office managers anticipating a corporate move.

Synopsis:

A thorough and engaging look at the process of space planning for offices. Covers issues such as building codes and integrating LEED requirements into the plan, and includes exercises, diagrams, plan views and CAD views to illustrate and support students and professionals through every stage of the design process.

Synopsis:

This is an introductory level book about the planning of interior environments. It addresses both the contents of interior environments and the process of interior planning. The book presents topics such as the making of rooms, the design of effective spatial sequences, the functional relationships among project parts, the arrangement of furniture, planning effective circulation systems, making spaces accessible, and designing safe environments with efficient emergency egress systems. The book presents many examples of project parts, from individual rooms to entire projects and includes both good and not-so-good design solutions to help students understand the differences. Numerous exercises throughout the book are meant to facilitate learning by encouraging students to apply ideas and concepts in a loose and fast way, immediately after reading about them.
