Space planning allows interior designers to allocate rooms for specific tasks and arrange elements like furniture, to determine if a potential space is appropriate, or to make an existing space as efficient and comfortable as possible for their clients. Join Ed Cotey in this course, as he goes over the finer technical points of space planning in Autodesk Revit. Learn how to add your building's parameters into a schedule, make a block plan with mass elements, use Revit's Tag and Area tools to track room names and types, and use color schemes to explain where materials go and where rooms are located.
In this challenge, you will create a simple floor plan using the Revit Wall tools. Upon completion of drawing in the walls, you will then develop an area room type plan and create a color scheme to show to your client. If you saved the block plan you developed in the prior challenge, go ahead and use that file. Or, in the Exercise files, see the new file in the Challenge folder, and pick it up from there. The objectives of this challenge are as follows. First of all, create a new view and call it Space Plan 2nd Floor, using the block plan as a background, lay in the interior walls.
Using the Room Element tool, assign a room and room element to each room. Label the rooms accordingly. Change the default room tag to include the square footage for the room. Using the Area tools, create a Rentable Area plan. Add area elements and tags to determine area types of your own choosing. Duplicate the Rentable Area plan and rename it, Area Room Scheme. Create a color scheme, call the view, Scheme by Room.
Set category to rooms, then set by to name and then add a legend. To do this challenge it should take you about 25 minutes.
