Key Principles For Space Planning
There are key principles that should be considered when it comes to space planning for any size or type of project. Key principles that will be carefully considered include function, size, light, storage, accessibility, and existing features, to name just a few.
Each and every project is unique and therefore, it’s important to establish the key principles from the beginning and prioritise them in line with your bespoke requirements and necessities. Moreover, it may also be important to consider potential expansion in the future, for example, if you are catering to a growing family or business.
Space planning is paramount before proposing any 3D architectural drawings and designs to consider how people, furniture, storage space, and other accessories will be located.
