Architectural Programs: What to Know
Before the schematic design of a facility comes the architectural program. Clients and professionals might know the architectural program by other names, such as the design brief, the facilities program, or space needs analysis.
In short, the architectural program covers your building’s spatial requirements—from necessary windows, fire exits, and electrical outlets to the project base costs estimate. These requirements may relate to standard building codes, or they may relate to the wishes of a client.
Whatever the case, these key details are essential to the overall success of your project. Designers and builders alike will refer to your design brief over the course of the project.
Establishing Needs and Objectives
Developing the design brief is all about cultivating a deep understanding of the client’s wishes. A common example can be found in the designing of a commercial property. While the building itself is important, there is also the parking lot to concern yourself with. Rest assured, we never let site requirements such as these go undiscussed.
Your facilities program will also include:
- Spatial relationship diagrams
- Flow diagrams
- Considerations of zoning and building code requirements
- Room-by-room requirements and functions
- And more
