Product Description

From the Back Cover

The definitive book on space planning

Revised to address the most up-to-date developments in professional practice and technologies, Space Planning Basics, now in its Third Edition, offers a highly visual, step-by-step approach to developing preliminary floor plans for commercial spaces. It provides all the necessary tools and know-how to effectively organize and configure space and walks the designer through other considerations such as building code requirements and environmental control needs.

Illustrated with new drawings and exercises, this Third Edition develops the reader's applicable skills and ability to solve day-to-day issues in the real world. The text explains how to use matrices, bubble diagrams, block plans, and CAD templates for establishing a workable spatial organization.

New to this edition:

  • Coverage of the basics of stair design, an essential element in planning spaces

  • New section on stair design offers the basic information needed for incorporating this crucial component of interior space

  • Programming examples for both small and large commercial spaces (up to 4,000 square feet)

Thoughtfully designed to help the reader absorb and master the material through hands-on exercises, Space Planning Basics, Third Edition is a valuable learning tool for intermediate-level students in interior design, architecture, facilities management, and construction management, as well as professionals in these fields.

Top Customer Reviews

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.

HASH(0xa48a29cc) out of 5 stars 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.

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.

HASH(0xa4e962c4) out of 5 stars Great Book Sept. 14 2009
By Jeanette Toth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I needed this book for required reading for my graduate studies. It is very basic beginner space planning ideas. The layout and explanations are easy and helpful. I already had a grasp on everything this book covers, but it's a good one to keep on the bookshelf for reference.
