Figure 1 deals primarily with some of the more male anthropometric considera- critical tions. A iavatory height above the floor of 37 to 43 in, or 94 to It should be noted, however, that common practice is to locate the iavatory in the neighborhood of 31 in above the floor. In order to establish the location of mirrors above the lavatory, eye height should be taken into consideration.

Figure 2 explores, in much the same manner, the anthropometric considerations related to women and children. Given the great variability in body sizes to be accommo- dated within a single family, a strong case can be presented forthe development of a height adjustment capability for the lavatory Until that is developed, there is no reason, on custom installations, why the architect or interior designer cannot take anthropometric measurements of the client to ensure proper interface between the user and the lavatory.

With fixtures in separate compartments, this layout can replace a second bath by accommodating more than one person at a time. It is as large as two bathrooms but costs less because of fewer fixtures and less plumbing. BATH I. PlKll6ri- trf: Fig, 16 Typical details of a marble vanity-top installation.

Recommended uses for alteration of ceramic-tiled areas where modernization or a change of design is. Requirements existing installation must be sound, well bonded, and without major structural cracks. The height of a kitchen workcounter, the proper clearance between cabinets or ap- pliances for circulation, the accessibility to overhead or undercounter storage, and proper visibility are among the primary con- siderations in the design of cooking spaces, All must be responsive to human dimension and body size if the quality of interface between the user and the components of the interior space are to be adequate.

In estab- lishing clearances between counters, the maximum body breadth and depth of the user of larger body size must be taken into account as well as the projections of the appliances.

Refrigerator doors, cabinet draw- ers, dishwashing machine doors, and cabinet doors all project to some degree in their open position into the space within which the user must circulate and must be accommodated. Standard kitchen counter heights man- ufactured are all about 36 in, or But such a height does not necessarily accom- modate the body dimension of all users for all tasks.

Certain cooking activities, for exam- ple, may be more efficiently performed from a standing position, but with a counter height less than 36 in. The logical answer is the devel- opment of kitchen cabinet systems capable Fig.

Such asystem could accommodate not only those of smaller and larger body size, but also elderly and disabled people. Clearance between Appliances K Figures 2 and 3 illustrate the clearances related to range centers. Figure 2 indicates a minimum clearance between appliances of 48 or 1 21 9 cm.

The i n, or 1 The standing figure shown in broken line, however, indicates both dimensionally and graphically that the in clearance will not permit comfortable circulation when ap- pliances on both sides are in operation at the same time. The range workzone clearance, aiso 40 in, is adequate to accommodate the open range door and the body size of the kneeling user An extremely important, but frequently overlooked, anthropometric consideration in kitchen design is eye height, In this regard, the distance from the top of the range to the underside of the hood should allow the rear burners to be visible to the user.

It sometimes is closed off on one end, thereby creating a variation of the U-plan, which although small can produce a fairly comfortable kitchen, The broken U-shaped plan often results from the necessity of locating a door along one or two of the three walls of a typical U- shaped scheme.

The resulting through traffic reduces the compactness and efficiency of the plan. The typical L-shaped kitchen allows for the location of a small breakfast area in the opposite comer.

The adaptable features are removable base cabinets at knee spaces and counters that can be adjusted in height or fixed at a lower than standard height, The adaptable features for kitchens spec- ified in the standards are shown in Figs, 13 and In Fig. In Fig, 14, the kitchen has been adapted by exposing the knee spaces and lowering the work surface and sink counter segments.

No other changes have been made to the kitchen, Since removable base cabinets and adjust- able height counters are not now products that are readily available for purchase, they are usually custom-made items,. Wheelchair Accessible Design. Sir shelves overhead cabinets. Work Surfaces People who use wheelchairs and other peo- ple who must or wish to sit down while preparing food need at least one work sur- face lower than the usual in-high counter lowered counter Fig. Work surfaces at ovens If a wall oven is installed, a lowered work surface with knee space should be installed next to the wall oven.

The standards specify that when the wall oven is not self cleaning, a knee space must be located next to the oven to permit a disabled person in a wheelchair to putt up close enough to clean the oven. Even if a self-cleaning oven is installed, locating the knee space next to the oven makes it easier and safer for a disabled person to remove hot items from the oven. When an oven with a side-opening door is used, a pull-out shelf located beneath the oven must be installed.

The shelf is used as a transfer surface for dishes as they are placed into or taken out of the oven. When not needed, the shelf is pushed back into the oven cabinet Fig.

When an oven with a drop-front door is used Fig, 21 , the pullout shelf is not needed because the door serves as a transfer shelf. See ANSI 4. ANSI 4.

The most frequently mentioned advantages and disadvantages of these various options are listed below. Advantages A separatespace can be used for other activitiessuch as sewing and hobbies, if it is large enough. Clothes may be hung for air drying without interfering with other household activities.

Noise from laundry appliances can be shut off from the rest of the dwelling. Temporary holding or storage of clothing to be washed or ironed is made easier.

Disadvantages Providing this extra room increases the cost of the dwelling. DRYER room.

Fioor and waii finishes in bathrooms are usually resistant to high humidities. Usually, additional plumbing costs are minimal. The bathroom sink may be used for hand washing. Mechanical ventilation can be provided economically for both functions.

Disadvantages A bathroom will usually accommodate only washing and drying facilities. Other laundry related activities such as ironing, will have to be carried out elsewhere in the dwelling. Occupants may wish to use the bathroom when laundry is being washed or dried. Laundry in Combination with Kitchen Advantages Suitable in housing for young families because the person doing the laundry can keep an eye on the washing machine while doing other jobs and supervising the children.

Direct access to the outside for clothes drying is likely to be easier than from laun- dries located in a basement or on a second storey Kitchen sinks are usually sizeable and can be used for laundering.

Additional plumbing costs are usually small. Disadvantages Danger of cross-contamination through the handling of dirty washing during food preparation. Grease and cooking smells can be passed on to clean clothes. Noise generated by running appliances cannot easily be shut off from the rest of the dwelling. Space In Basement Advantages Generally as much space as needed can be provided. Noise generated by running appliances can be easily shut off from the rest of the dwelling.

Disadvantages Laundry must be carried up and down although automatic dryers have eased stairs, the problem of carrying heavy baskets of damp clothes to outdoor clotheslines. Advantages The space is used more economically Fig. The space above the appliances may be used as a linen closet. The appliances can be hidden from sight when they are not in use; they can be recessed into the wall and enclosed with doors.

Disadvantages Noise generated by running appliances cannot be easily shut off from the rest of the dwelling. An alcove adjacent to a corridor will accommodate only a minimum-sized laundry area.

Other laundry related activities, such as ironing, will have to be carried out elsewhere in the dwelling. The sequence of laundering operations de- termines the planning of space and facilities and the placing of equipment. Convenience and time-and-step saving are easily achieved by placing the elements in their natural order of use: An area especially planned for sewing, Dimensions, in.

Within these buildings, workers spend nearly half their waking hours and a third of their entire lives. Over the life span of a typical office building, the same spaces may be occupied by a succession of different tenants, each with their own program- matic requirements. Consequently, interior spaces may be recycled and. In many instances redesign may be necessitated solely by the effect of technological change on the methodology of transacting business. Moreover, the escalating costs of land acquisition and construction and the increasing scarcity of urban building sites make it essential that the redesign reflects an efficient, cost-effective utilization of space, as well as one that is responsive to the human factors involved, It is necessary, therefore, for the designer to be familiar not only with the general planning criteria.

Accordingly, this section includes general planning criteria and examples of actual working drawings of typical interior conditions, prepared by various design professionals. The details alluded to include such items as trading desks, elevated computer floors, library furniture, built-in storage cabinets, work counters, wall paneling, vanities, reception desks, and conference room elements. Also included are illustrations and dimensional data pertaining to typical office furniture, equipment, and electronic media storage.
