About the Book
This customisable manual equips you to plan interior design choices around the activities you do most.
For each room there are:
– over 100 regular task suggestions
– spaces to add your own specific needs
– essentials and added comforts
– sustainability, accessibility and multi-functionality suggestions
– beautiful photographs
You'll gain an understanding of time and motion theory, and find out how to create your own floor plans and 3D models.
All along you'll be asking and refining your answers to the questions: "What do we do in this room? And is there a better way to do it?"
