What It's About:

What do you get when you mix a 30’ bathroom with a 6’ kitchen? A bad floor plan, unusable spaces and unhappy residents. In this session, learn how to right-size your homes and the spaces within them. Explore how to appropriately size individual rooms, eliminate redundant spaces and integrate circulation, discuss dual-use and flex rooms to maximize a space’s use, and learn how to approach spaces differently when keeping an eye on affordability.

What You'll Learn:

  • Discuss best practices for selecting which spaces to include in-plan and the size relationships between them.
  • Identify opportunities for dual-use and flex spaces in-plan that will offer more options to residents.
  • Explore circulation options that efficiently use square footage and improve flow.

How to Attend:

Participants must be registered for a full registration package or a 1-day education with expo pass package valid for the day of the session they wish to attend. Seating for Building Knowledge sessions will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
