Space planning is an in-depth analysis of how physical space is used in structures. It considers the purpose of spaces and who will use them. Space planning is a process that takes several steps, and it’s an important component for our work as architects.
Space planning helps ensure efficient use of floor space without wasting it. This is a drawing that identifies the needs and required elements of spaces, including windows, doors, and even furniture within them.
“KUBIRON” begin space planning by gathering information. We must know several things before we can draft a space plan. First, we define the purpose of structures and spaces. How will the space be used? A building might be commercial, industrial, or residential. Structures with different purposes have very different space needs, and their use will help determine how it is allocated.
Some spaces might have more than one function, and they might need to be flexible. Then there’s the consideration of who will use the space. Buildings and the spaces in them are for people, after all, so we need to answer some questions: how will people spend their time in the building? Is it living space, offices, work space, or storage space? How many people does the space have to hold?
Often, clients have spaces with multiple needs. Prioritizing which need comes first might not be easy, but it might be crucial to how the space is designed. So we need to be aware of all the elements to come up with the best solution. During space planning, our job is also to consider elements like lighting and ventilation. Once the purpose and use of spaces is better defined, other elements come into play.
Whether your house is being built or you’re looking to do a large renovation, a 3d floorplan of the space can give a much better sense of the space compared to standard 2D plans.
One of the best ways to showcase the different unit types of a condo is to create floorplans for each one.
3D floorplans can be a very effective tool for helping in understanding what an outdated home could look like after a renovation. 3D floorplans can be a simple way to show what an update might look like without getting into the details.
3D floorplans are one of the best ways to show an overall layout of a property in a clear and visually appealing way. 3d floor plans allow you to get a much better understanding of the overall layout, size and flow of a space.
