Space planning is one of the most fundamental aspects of any interior design process, and nowhere more so then in an office space. It starts with a detailed analysis of how the office space is currently being utilised. From this analysis, we can break a space down, and look at the activities that take place in those spaces. Space planning also covers circulation patterns and the way people move through the space.
There are many factors to consider when it comes to space planning:
- What is the lay out of the office space, what are the main features of the room?Where are the windows? Where are the power outlets? Where are the toilets? Where are the network points? Knowing what you have to work with in the beginning is key to any office space planning. This fundamental approach is key for any of the best office fit out companies.
