2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Collin Lyle on April 22 2000
Format: Paperback
For very general understanding of Interior Design and as a study guide the NCIDQ exam this book is quite good. Be aware that as a tool for real world design solutions, it is lacking. The authors design philosophy and methodology are terrific, but the design solutions have problems. (example: A door entering into a two stall toilet room swings into the sink area. Anyone standing at the sink will be hit by the door when another person enters the room.) Although, if the reader has enough understanding of real world design conflicts and can spot the design errors in this book's illustrations, then the reader has gained the skill necessary to provide good workable design solutions. Many of the illustrtions do not comply with ADA guidlines, which is NOT necessary for passing the NCIDQ, but essential for the workplace. North Carolina, the state where I practice, has codified the ADA guidelines. Use this book as a study guide for NCIDQ. Be aware of design flaws. Use it at the office for philosophy and methodlogy only. If you are studying for NCIDQ, good luck, keep it simple, and parrot back everything that is required in your design solution. Do your finished design in black ink and write notes for everything.

A thorough basic overview Jan. 27 2008
By ID teacher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The book is a very good reference to the importance of the space planning process with thoughtful exercises incorporated. It is best as a text book vs. trying to read and understand it on your own.
You must understand that it's not a code book, so some of the dimensions, etc. should be verified based on your own location.

Lacking Feb. 21 2010
By A. Ortiz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was lacking in many ways. Construction Drawings and Details for Interiors: Basic Skills by Rosemary Kilmer was a much better book on space planning and graphics for much less than this book.

Any college-level library appealing to architecture and interior design students - especially those involved in commercial buildings - needs SPACE PLANNING BASICS. The third updated edition includes coverage of stair design, a new section on such design, and programming examples for small and large commercial spaces (up to 4,000 square feet). Hands-on exercises and advice are perfect for intermediate-level students in construction management and interior design.

This is the only book I have ever found that teaches the basics of space planning. It is a must have for interior designers and drafts persons.
