This past year I was challenged with designing a commercial space that measured less than 20 feet wide by approximately 100 ft. deep. The mandate was to create separate rooms or spaces for separate functions in a retail type setting.
This may sound simple, but in fact when faced with ADA compliance and all other codes would prove to be challenging, but I love a good challenge!
As you can see a lot has to happen in this space. Below is a picture of the glass panels used not only as a space-saving technique or design but to allow additional light into the space!
I also specified that the panels be set into “U-channels” so that the blocks would not get scattered into the adjacent hallway. The doorway is open as well, no door installed to detract from space, so some blocks may find their way out!
One other neat space-saving technique I employed was to specify a room divider to allow a space to be used by different parties simultaneously with separate entrances into the room. The accordion type wall could be opened for total use of the space and was mounted on a support beam!
These are just a few examples of space-saving options when designing in a tight space. Come back soon for more ideas from Chatti Patti. Thanks for stopping by…
