Our final plan was due on Wednesday, and it took 5 block plans (15 floor plan drawings) to finalize a floor plan that I am not only passionate about and LOVE, but one that will function the absolute best for the users.
The final plan takes multiple factors into consideration in its design.
- Space planning
- User’s experience
Level 3: First Floor of the Dance Academy [Mostly Private]
Level 4: Second Floor of the Dance Academy [Equally Public & Private]
Level 5: Third Floor of the Dance Academy [Mostly Public]
After the parti charette, the concept was implemented into multiple block floor plans to configure the best layout and space planning of the spaces. Once the basic layout of spaces was determined, I was able to embellish the wall placement/shape/form, ultimately enhancing the user’s experience.
Challenges encountered during this process:
- Windows EVERYWHERE!
- If not windows, then doors to balcony’s
- Multiple stairways to accommodate and create paths to and from
- Existing electrical and equipment storage
- Unique Architecture
Challenges were overcome with careful thought and multiple iterations until a unique, exciting, & functional floor plan was developed!
I apologize for the quality of the pictures, they are photos of the drafted floor plans. I will be scanning the originals soon and posting better images.
Give me feedback!!!
