Space planning

The definition of space in terms of size, type, activity, and adjacency for any particular type of space.The process of converting the needs expressed by the client into the drawings and supporting documentation that outline the plan for the design and building team. For the interior designer, space planning includes the placement of all fixed and movable elements, from plumbed and wired appliances to furniture and the way people move around in the space. Plumbing and HVAC contractors are concerned primarily with hidden elements. With comprehensive space planning, the team works together to ensure that the design is optimized across disciplines.
