From the Back Cover
THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO SPACE PLANNING, UPDATED AND EXPANDED WITH DIGITAL RESOURCES
Space planning involves much more than just floor plan sketches; designers must consider client needs alongside building codes, environmental factors, and other variables that affect spatial composition, and merge them into a unified, functional, spatially dynamic design. Space Planning Basics is the essential introduction and de facto reference for the design of the interior built space, with step-by-step methodology that serves as a principle resource for designers around the world.
This newly revised edition includes expanded guidance on sustainable design topics including daylighting, benchmarking, LEED, green code issues, and more. The fourth edition also supplies interactive digital resources that provide a close-up look at real-world applications.
New fourth edition updates include:
- Updated drawings, diagrams, and matrices
- Up-to-date discussion on the latest sustainable design and universal design concepts
- Access to video tutorials, CAD files, and interactive documents
- Thorough, in-depth review for space planning aspects of the NCIDQ exam
Comprehensive in scope and highly practical in approach, Space Planning Basics is an essential resource and a complete learning solution for anyone in the early stages of design.

Authors Karlen and Fleming, begin by describing the space planning process that begins when the planning problem is presented to you and ends when physical planning commences, usually with bubble diagrams or block plans. In addition, they describe the physical planning process and the development of a floor plan, with all of its broader spatial and design implications. The authors also deal with specific floor plan arrangements, defining a proposed architectural reality. Then, they continue by providing you with an overview of each area of general planning and design background fundamentally important to the space planning process. The authors then cover the relevant consultants (who are lighting designers), code specialist, acoustic consultants, and furniture and equipment manufactures' representatives. Next, they go step by step through the development of a rough or first-phase floor plan. In addition, the authors first describe the transition phase of the planning process in full detail; some comments on drawing quality and presentation technique are added as a natural supplement to the planning process. They also provide the basic ideas and directions for you to develop skills beyond the basic level of achievement called for in the program/building shell exercises throughout the book. Finally, the authors reveal that there are some basic differences between designing stairs within an existing building and stairs within a new structure that is in the process of being designed; knowledge of building codes and standards for providing for disabled users is critical to designing realistic and workable stairs; and, terminology related to stairs can lead to some confusion or misunderstanding of design or construction issues.
This excellent book is meant not only to be read, but also to be worked with as a hands-on guide in the development of creative skills. In addition, the step-by-step process of space planning described in this great book, is deliberately geared to the learning of a complex skill.
