ID 40 Residential Design Final Project Barrier Free Design Final Project Barrier Free Design You have successfully completed 3 design projects of varying scope Furniture Planning Space Planning Design Build Project The remainder of the semester is dedicated to a final design build project The residence must be universally accessible Barrier Free Design Project Parameters Your final project requires a real client with limited mobility from a physical impairment The current or future use of a wheelchair is required You may already know someone like this OR you may contact the Disability and Educational Support Program on campus 408 741 2010 There are many handicapped WVC students and staff who enjoy participating in this program each semester Programming This new residence will be located on the existing site of a caretaker s property The design build requirements are 2500 sq ft one story residence Level changes may occur if properly negotiated Detached from the main caretaker s residence Functionally independent from the main residence Programming Documentation Interview the client Establish a Client Profile Using this information develop a Project Program Review design requirements Create a Scope of Services Establish the Design Concept Prepare a Design Intent Statement How you plan to execute the concept This information must be type written and submitted with the Specification Binder Considerations You must orient this residence on an existing site by determining the varying steepness of slope Elements to consider Relationship to sun wind existing buildings view landscape Direction and degree of slope Special needs for client accessibility and safety Interior exterior relationships and transitions Interior exterior lighting Design Studies Review the Site Study you have been given Graph the angled contours of the slope on flimsy Using this information determine placement for the new residence Indicate the orientation of the new building on the site plan This image will used on the Title Sheet of your plan set Show exterior finishes where applicable ie gravel concrete rock wood etc This information will also be included in your Specification Binder Design Studies Prepare a 3 dimensional Study Model To be constructed at 1 4 1 0 scale Model may be constructed with 3 16 foam core recommended illustration board balsa wood etc Used to study openings changes in planes roof overhangs built ins and larger pieces of furniture This is an important tool that helps uncover any design flaws before final submission Documentation You must provide a full set of plans to include Floorplan Construction Plan Electrical Lighting Ceiling Plan or any combo Electrical combined with Lighting Plan Reflected Ceiling Plan combined with Lighting Furniture Plan may be combined with Electrical Finish Plan Finish Schedule Elevations and or Axonometrics Elevations It is common practice to include elevations of key areas in a plan set Elevations are always drafted at 1 2 1 0 scale Rendered elevations are presented to the client during design development You must submit 3 elevations or 3 axonemetric drawings for the following views Living area Kitchen Accessible bathroom Axonometric Drawings Elevations do not show depth Axon drawings create a false perspective They are often confusing to the client Client s can visualize the space in 3 D Axon drawings are shown during client presentations but are not included with the plan set Whichever format you select these drawings are to be fully rendered and included on your final Presentation Boards Presentation Boards All presentation materials must be mounted on foam core or illustration board use 1 2 sheet size These boards are presented to showcase the design to the client They include Elevations and or Axonometrics rendered Samples of select Furniture and Finishes Not every piece of furniture and finish needs to be presented Instead provide selections that give an overall impression of the concept Specification Binder Commonly referred to as the Spec Book this is where the Designer catalogs everything being specified for the project Information can include Finish materials Furniture fabrics existing furniture inventory Manufacturer s product information brochures for Cabinetry hardware lighting skylights windows doors Specification Binder How to s Once you begin the final selection process Fill out the Furniture Specification forms you were given Create new forms for Finish specs Assign Item Codes to each specification Finishes and furniture must be cross referenced from the spec book to Finish and Furniture Plans The assigned Item Code appears At the top of the Spec Sheet On the appropriate plan In the Plan Legend which is affixed to the back of each presentation board Don t Worry We will devote an entire class session to the creation and organization of the Specification Binder You will learn how to create a Finish Plan and format the Spec Book For now keep an organized collection of everything you are using for the project Keep the information separated by room locations or type of specification Incorporate a system that works best for you Final Project How to begin Contact and interview the client Establish the project program Develop your concept for the design Establish the number of rooms needed Estimate sq footage requirements Begin adjacency studies Now you are ready to assess the site and find an appropriate location for the residence Site Study You were given a Site Plan for review The plan was originally drafted at 1 16 scale but has been reduced by 50 The plan is actually 1 32 1 0 scale You must graph the rise of the slope to determine where to place this residence Remember to consider view potential and adjacency to the caretaker s residence Remember to factor in the 50 reduction of the Site Plan You do not want your residence to appear out of scale with the site Contour Lines Equally spaced contours indicate a constant slope Widely spaced contours indicate relatively flat or very gently sloped land Closely spaced contours indicate steeper slopes The lines on your Site Plan rise by a factor of 10 The slope rises 10 feet at the point of each contour line Site Planning Consider rotating flipping or adding fill dirt to the slope alignment to create a level approach to the residence The maximum slope for a wheelchair ramp is 1 rise to 12 run Ideal scenario 1 rise for every 20 of length Ramps can be hazardous to anyone using a walker and or cane Consider a
