Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Interior architectural details, planning standards, and reference data, for use by architects, interior designers, space planners, facility managers, builders, and design students.

Long recognized as one of the most comprehensive architectural and interior design reference resources and known as “the silver bible,” this new edition of Time-Saver Standards for Interior Design and Space Planning is an excellent source of easily accessible design criteria, planning standards, and technical guidelines. The vast array of design information, all contained in a single volume, facilitates and expedites the completion of programming, preliminary planning, design development, and working drawing services.

This updated and revised edition of Time-Saver Standards for Interior Design and Space Planning serves as a primary source of information for all design professionals. Organized in an easily accessible format, the book contains key criteria useful to every design professional and builder involved in the planning of a large variety of interior projects.

It includes, among other changes, entirely new sections dealing with healthcare spaces, hospitality spaces, banking spaces, conference centers, and accessible design, featuring the latest ADA design requirements.

Moreover, many of the existing sections of the book have been significantly expanded to include such new material as design and planning criteria for video-conference spaces, as well as a host of additional lighting design details, workstation configurations, and reference standards.

Format: Hardcover
This is a a "must have" for anyone in the interior design industry. The best book since Architectural Graphic Standards for the Interior Design Profession. Very Specific and all inclusive, excellent details for just about every application.
Required purchase for my Interior Design Students to use through out their educational and professional careers.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a required book for anyone in Interior Design for a good reason: it has about everything, including the (many kinds) of kitchen sink. What I really can't stand about using it is the seemingly arbitrary indexing, scattered locations for information and nearly impossible to decipher graphics on some pages. I do not agree that it has much useful information on furniture styles: you'd be better off to shell out for Aronson's "Encyclopedia of Furniture" or Miller's "Furniture" and get right to what you need. The standard dimensions are useful, though, especially for space planning purposes. Don't be surprised if there is information missing in some cases, or it is outright incorrect. Be sure to cross-reference and here's another tip: make a cheat sheet for yourself for the pages you use most, tape it to the inside cover and go from there. The Index is a goose-chase. Why three stars? Because I think they can do better. It is time for a rehaul of the Silver Monster.

Format: Hardcover
This is a tome of a book, and its contents are initially very impressive, but it STILL contains many old and out of date details which have been pulled and photocopied from projects that are rather worn and ragged looking. Also, many of the drawings are not legible due to size and lineweight quality, and so you may have to resort to pulling out a magnifying glass to decipher the information.

In my opinion, a superior resource is "Interior Graphic Standards" by Kelsey Kruse and Maryrose McGowan. Or, at least, one should have both books but check the information in this one against the far more accurate volume by Kruse/McGowan.

As an Interior Design student at OSU this was an invaluable resource to have. No student or designer should be without it in their library.

Format: Hardcover
Besides just being large and heavy, this book is filled with great information. For a beginner, it can be overwhelming, but it is definitely a book every designer should have on their bookshelf. It provides guidelines, dimensions, and tons of illustrations for creating the proper space. The book acknowledges designing for handicap, retail, hospitality and residential spaces. It reviews the standard sizes for furniture pieces, ceiling heights etc...Once you find what your looking for (through all of those pages), you definitely get good direction from the information provided on it.

Format: Hardcover
While there is a lot of information in this book, most of it is too small to read or see easily. Many of the drawings are too small and unclear. Also, the material is not presented in a way that makes it easy to access. I will be looking elsewhere for the information. I sent mine back in spite of the shipping cost.

I bought this book in college because it was part of my required text for my degree in Interior design. I have been out of school for 4 years and I still keep it at my desk or nearby when I am doing drawings. I recommend this book to anyone who is in the design industry. The details and information in this book saves the designer from having to go through multiple books looking for specific details.

As an interior design student this book is like a design manual for me. It has common standards for bathrooms, bedrooms, kitchens, ect. It is a great reference book, and I've been using my library's copy for a while and have just decided that (as often as I use it) it's about time i get one for my own library.
