Zoning the Space:

How to allocate space and make it work for your lifestyle.

When working in a plan for a layout that will incorporate several different activities, especially open plan living, the first job is to discover what space in ‘general  terms’ is needed for each function and how they link together to provide direct access. This can be determined by the sizes of anything new or existing, the amount of time spent on each occupation and the number of people living in the space, but there are many other factors.

WHAT THIS VIDEO WILL HELP YOU WITH:

We show three different layouts for one open plan space which divides the eating, kitchen, TV area, sitting area with somewhere to work and a fireplace all in one open plan space. It starts with an obvious layout and then challenges you to think differently, producing very alternative ideas. Nothing at this stage is perfectly worked through and the detail is yet to be determined which is critical and can change things. It’s a basis for getting started with your space planning.
