A floor plan is a simple two-dimensional (2D) line drawing that shows the location of the walls and rooms in a building as if viewed from above. In a building plan, what we see is a floor plan. Sometimes it is just called a floor plan but internationally, it is referred to as a floor plan or floor plan. If it is multilevel, then add the level number such as “2nd Floor Plan” or “2nd Floor Plan”.
What Are the Contents of Floor Plan Drawings?
A floor plan is very similar to a map drawing, with the length and width, size, and scale of how far apart it is. Walls, doors, and windows are usually drawn with scale, which means fairly accurate proportions and describes how the interactions between building elements are. Built-in furniture and appliances such as bathtubs, washbasins, and cabinets are usually depicted in floor plans. The following is a complete list of things that are usually in the floor plan:
- The axle of the building
- The building wall line
- The door and the direction it open
- Windows and open systems
- Built-in furniture
- Loose furniture
- Description of the room name
- Description of the floor level
- Material description (wall and column pieces)
- Grid structure
Some Terms about the Plan
The following are some terms that are often used in engineering and imaging systems, especially in the world of architecture and construction.
- Plans: 2D drawings showing exterior and interior walls, doors, and windows; details vary
- Blueprint: Detailed architectural drawings used as construction documents or builders’ guides (refers to the old method of printing white lines on blue paper)
- Rendering: As used by an architect, an elevation drawing showing what a finished structure will look like from different perspectives
- Bum wad: Onion tracing paper used by architects to draw initial floor plans; also called trash, trail, or scratch paper, as thin as toilet paper, but stronger; tracing paper roll that is yellow (easier to see the coating on a table or lightbox) or white (easier to make an electronic copy)
- Schematic: An architect’s “schematic” of how to meet client needs; The initial design stage of the architect’s process includes a floor plan
- Dollhouse view: 3D floor plan viewed from above, like looking into a dollhouse without a roof; easily produced from a digital floor plan
Regarding the types of drawings above will then be described in more detail in a special article reviewing the types of architectural drawings.
