Dimensioning Floor Plans

Construction Drawings Architecture

A floor plan is carefully dimensioned to ensure that items such as walls, columns, doors, windows, openings, stairs, and other particulars are correctly located for construction. Sometimes after a plan is drawn accurately to a scale, its reproduction causes a slight enlargement or reduction of the drawing. In such cases, the floor plan is slightly out of true scale, but this is acceptable because the written dimensions are the controlling factors. In fact, most designers add a note on the drawing that says, do not scale drawing, follow written dimensions. Figure 6-31 A portion of a floor plan can be keyed with a symbol to a larger, more detailed plan that is drawn elsewhere. For example, this part of the plan is referenced as area 6 and enlarged on sheet A4. Figure 6-32 Dimensions on a floor plan generally locate the framework of the building, such as the face of these 2x4 studs. Figure 6-31 A portion of a floor plan can be keyed with a symbol to a larger, more detailed plan that is...

Apart from the urban and architectural design strategy the floor plan layout is a crucial factor for the building. Architects should try to achieve compact buildings with well-considered fa ade areas and floor-to-floor heights as well as acceptable ratios of total floor area to net floor area and total cubic content to net floor area. Floor plan layouts also have to enable supplementary installation of services and equipment and provide sufficient flexibility to accommodate future changes of technical building standards that cannot be foreseen.

Concentric Braces Passing Steel Decks

Although the building is expressed as a square, it is punctuated by a series of four nine-story-high wedge-shaped winter gardens cut into the northeast corner and two more at the southwest corner (Fig. 8.19a,b). The winter gardens have the effect of dividing the tower, both visually and structurally, into a stack of five modules outlined by the super-braces. At the lowest module, the northeast corner column is eliminated entirely. As a result, the tower has only a single axis of symmetry, which passes at 45 degrees through the corners in addition, nine different floor plans are required within each module. Plan at a representative floor is shown in Fig. 8.19c. Figure 8.18. City Spire, New York floor plans. Figure 8.18. City Spire, New York floor plans. The project consists of a 52-story office tower rising above a base consisting of lobby and retail levels, and six levels of subterranean parking (Fig. 8.25a). A structural steel system consisting of a ductile moment-resisting frame at...

Grid Pattern Design Architecture

Figure 6-4 A second-level floor plan can also show part of the space below. This helps to visualize what one can see when looking from this upper floor to the lower one. Figure 6-7. Also, a different pattern can be used on the floor plan to denote a change in the floor treatment, such as the grid pattern in the kitchen and utility room in Figure 6-7. Much of the other information given on a floor plan is more general, with the items spelled out in more detail in other drawings or specifications. For example, a water heater or handrail is designated as such on the plan, and its detailed specifications are found elsewhere in the construction drawings or written specifications. Figure 6-6 In this partial floor plan, doors are drawn simply, just showing their size and direction of swing. For example, 3 means a door that is 3 feet in width. Figure 6-7. Also, a different pattern can be used on the floor plan to denote a change in the floor treatment, such as the grid pattern in the kitchen...

Imaginary Homes Floor Plans

The floor plan is perhaps the most significant architectural drawing, as it contains a tremendous amount of information about the design and construction of a building or space (see Figure 6-1). It also serves as the primary drawing to which many of the other specialty drawings can be keyed. A floor plan is an orthographic view of a total building or an area within a building, seen as if a horizontal cutting plane were passed through it at a height of approximately 4 feet (1219 mm) above the floor line (Figure 6-2). In some cases, it may be necessary to assume a higher cutting plane to show an item such as a high window or the space above a tall cabinet. The viewer is looking straight down into the building, as illustrated in Figure 6-3. In multiple-level buildings, a separate floor plan is drawn for each level. In turn, each level is aligned with the one above for bearing walls, stairways, ductwork, and other vertical elements related to both floors. Stairways are labeled up on one...

Floor plan types

The different possibilities for arranging floor plans within the row house type are primarily determined by the circulation within the house. The position of the staircase is the factor that defines the different row house types. In combination with the position of the entrance and the proportion of the footprint of the house, it determines the specific of this house type. An energy-conscious arrangement of the floor plan generates additional house types. The single-storey row house type is the simplest form of arrangement. The large depth of the floor plan requires recesses or cut-outs. Generously dimensioned inner courtyards
