Design your house plan

Some essential concepts to design your House plan :

- Take the terrain into account

This is the essential point. We draw the plan of the house according to the land or we adapt the chosen plan according to the land. In particular, attention should be paid to access (which determine the length of the path, networks, etc.), to the orientation (we will favor certain orientations for living rooms, others for bedrooms and still others for technical rooms), vents (so as to position the sheltered terraces), the drop shadows(neighboring buildings or large trees), views, the elevation

- Define themajor organizational principles

Single storey or stage, grouped rooms or separated (parents on one side and children on the other for example), large open rooms or partitioned spaces

- L'architecture

The plan impacts the architecture. It is therefore essential to think about it at the same time. In particular, care should be taken for two-story houses to avoid too much compactness (and if the budget allows it, move towards a partial floor)

    Pouvoir se protéger des vis à vis en ville ou dans les lotissements est vraiment un des atouts majeurs des plans d’architecte. C’est ce qui me parait le plus réussi dans ma maison.
