Technical Drawing and Space Planning:

Using the design of an open plan kitchen, this covers space planning basics and the next step up in technical drawing.

This Video is the next stage to technical drawing and space planning as its done with the scale rule and shows the design of a kitchen, an area for everyday meals and a sitting area. The design of a kitchen is not easy but the principles used are very relevant for many other types of design. This is a lesson in technical drawing as well which will allow you to become more proficient than just drawing a survey and using templates. It’s the next step up.

This video will explain:

Anyone can draw.....!

So many people say they cannot draw but they are wrong. Some are better than others but it comes down to being taught and understanding the information you need to give and how to impart it with skill.

Technical drawing does have a method and the computer operates very well if you have good input and recognise your mistakes. Computers make a drawing look professional but all designers start off using a pencil to learn the basics. Understanding what you are drawing and why, is essential and there is a process. It’s quick easy and cheap! Therefore this is great whether you are designing for yourself or have ideas of perhaps a new career.

Additional information

The video also explores Elevation, hand drawing and shows some detail drawings. We look at the space and how the planning works with balance and using centre lines to work from. The Kitchen is complemented with a different style of ‘kitchen dining’ and then a space for sitting in a room with a view.
