Time-Saver Standards for Interior Design and Space Planning



Time-Saver Standards for Interior Design and Space Planning is a professional handbook dealing with the planning, design, and detailing of interior spaces. Its primary goal is to provide, within a single reference, information that typically is found dispersed throughout a multitude of sources, including manufacturers’ catalogs, technical literature, books dealing with historic styles, and documents and drawings from various projects.

This handbook can be used by the small and medium-size interior design or architectural firm to establish an instant reference library of design data and details by providing a broad selection of detail types and techniques. In addition, the large firm will be able to substantially augment and modify an existing library of details.

Perhaps the most unique feature of this handbook is the vast array of construction and woodwork details reproduced directly from actual working drawings contributed by some of the nation’s leading interior design and architectural firms. It is this that makes the handbook particularly useful to the interior designer, architect, and student alike.

This book consists of five sections. The first, entitled “Planning and Design of Interior Spaces,” deals with residential, office, hospitality, and retail spaces in terms of the relevant planning, design, and detailing data specifically associated with each. The second section, entitled “Construction Details and Finishes,” deals with various basic interior construction components associated with most interior spaces. These components include partitions, wall openings, wall finishes, floors and floor finishes, doors, ceilings, stairs, fireplaces, and lighting. Details relevant to each component have been contributed by practicing interior designers and architects as well as manufacturers.

The third section, entitled “Architectural Woodwork,” deals with standard joinery and casework details, customized woodwork details, cornices and moldings, and furniture hardware. The fourth section, entitled “Specialties,” deals with various specialized areas of equipment, systems, furnishings, and decoration, including signage and graphics, audiovisual systems, window treatments, and accessories. Information for these subject areas is drawn from manufacturers, suppliers, and designers.

The sixth section, entitled “General Reference Data,” provides the most comprehensive set of time-saving reference materials found in handbooks of this type, including tables, charts, formulas, and planning guidelines. Of particular interest to the architect, interior designer, and facility manager are tables that can be easily used to determine carpet and wall covering yardage. Charts and drawings relative to human factors and planning standards are also provided.
