How to make a Criteria wAdjacency Matrix Bubble Diagram for Interior Designers

hello designers and welcome back to a sale bicycle book today's video has been requested by you guys and it's all about the criteria matrix and bubble diagram or the relationship diagram these are two important planning tools that if you're an interior designer and you're doing a big project or even a small project you can make really really good use out of so today I'm going to explain to you step-by-step and I'm going to give you a template at the end of this video that you can use and your future projects this is the end result of how it will look like that's like a draft and I will give you the electronic copy so you can use it into your future I have children playing downstairs I cannot control them I wish I can shout like yeah but unfortunately it doesn't work so let's get to it so the matrix format is a widely used technique for originally organizing information of a variety of factors that is sometimes referred to as a chart or a table it's useful technique to condense and organize the conventional written design program it is applicable to both small space is a large product but it is more common in large spaces the amount of information that is in the criteria matrix will vary upon the timing that you have for the project so sometimes it can be more detailed than other time sir step to do is to understand all of your spaces I'm going to be using one of my projects as an example one of my projects it was pure born offices and it was just further design I didn't excute it everybody was really fun to do client was so organized that she sent me the required list of spaces that she needs and there are ten phases and that I had to design and take care of the first thing that you need to take care of is the proportion of the criteria matrix and understanding how many spaces helps tremendously because you can space it correctly and I do advise you to make a draft one before you go ahead and make the proper criteria matrix so I'm going to create the draft with you for this project here the first thing that I did is I calculated the space is needed and then I divided my table into rows and columns depending on that a slanted line is created to have more spaces to write and then I put down my spaces on the far left and then I have the legend the legend depends totally on your project from there I start dividing for the rest of the columns the square metre needed adjacencies and other things that I'll explain in the video first thing that you need to do is to title the project so this is pure moron offices and these are all the spaces that are within the whole office that are acquired understanding the minimum square requirement even before you see a plan is a very useful thing because once you understand what the minimum is the nit then you can go ahead and start to understand how the spaces will fit within your plan so this is why we need the square metre requirement or square square foot it depends on where you are in the world adjacency helps you with plotting the area decide where each place will go for example understanding office spaces and the meeting room need to be nearby each other will help you put them together in the plan later on we have two similar things here but they're not very similar I'll explain the difference later but for the public access you'll decide whether the area should be nearby the entrance for the visitors can come and see and say hi and do that or if it requires total privacy away from the public eyes this this is very helpful when you're designing a bank day light or view determines which offices will require more daylight than the others for the privacy how is it different from the public access privacy is within the company itself for example CEOs need privacy that is even more substantial than office spaces when it comes to their own acoustic needs things like that and then this column you'll decide whether you need acoustic panels how much visual privacy does this area have plumbing is super helpful especially design big project then because then you can understand if your car plumbing in this space and you can remember it later on when you're designing that I will need plumbing solutions in this area and where you'll place your sinks things like that if for example it's an art center and you need a sink this is where you will write that you need plumbing for the special equipment you'll write a yes or no if it requires anything special then in the special consideration you will specify each requirement the legend is usually high medium low yes no none important but not required and this can defer to your needs now you might see this in the criterion matrix and you can look at it and give it a little confused on what it exactly does but it also helps you plan the space before you start this book is tremendously helpful if you're getting into space planning this is like the prototype how you do the prototype of the plan before you go ahead and create your final draft other of the criteria matrix if you want to give it to the client or not totally depends on you and your process as a designer here shows you the total needed space with from the whole plan also they consider the circulation which is something that we all need to consider it is the added adjacency matrix this is what you call a create a legend where it's immediately adjacent important adjacency reasonably convenient or unimportant or remote these are vessels that you need to have and then depending on that what you do is you create a line that is parallel to each side of the triangle and for example if you have nine areas so you'll have eight boxes to fill the box of reception and meeting the interview is a box where it determines what what kind of adjacency relationship it needs for example here it is immediately adjacent so you don't know when you're designing there suction and their interview station are near by each other next is the relationship diagrams all the barbel bubble diagrams for more fun paint the bubble diagram is something that is super super essential to be honest with you if I don't use the criteria matrix at all this is what I'm using I feel like visually it's easier to get bubble diagram than it is to get a criteria matrix so the first thing to understand is the circle size for each area needs to depend depends on how many square meters it will need so bigger areas have bigger cell circles this is the template that I used to use back in uni anything circular or you can just freehand it whatever you want so you can create the areas most public to the least public that's how I do it and I try to line them up to become what they will go into space like I will make them in order in the order that I'm going to design my space around or this is like my step stone into planning this space so [Music] okay so now that we have the circles and they're labeled what we have to do is create the legend for how adjacent they are to each other this is the legend that I'm gonna be using so I'm just going to create religion right quickly [Music] so now that we have the legend tour we're going to do is create connections between spaces for example office office places as he office out like an immediate adjacency clause it's important that they're together for the meeting room and the office spaces say the CEO office and the meeting room similar for the cafe and office spaces I wanted to close and comfy convenient because I want people to be able to take their breaks so what we'll do is just create a space to it the meeting room and cafe say if I wanted to close a convenient but the CEO office she has or a dish Coffee corner in her office so it would be minor [Music] these are the most important spaces that we need to connect together you don't have to get all of the circles connected to everything but you want to understand which spaces that you need circulation between like walkways and this is how you understand which areas need to be next to each other for the acoustic privacy as an example the c/o room we'd need a quested privacy from all sides and it will require a daylight or view for the other spaces we need daylight for the meeting room we need acoustic privacy from all sides just finish the bubble diagram what you do is you put it with him the space for instance this is what they have as an example gonna draw a plan here hypothetically speaking and I'm going to choose the interest to be here well take this burst it in here orienting with the spaces where they need to daylight let's say that you can access the lights here and here so now that you've already distributed your spaces you want to create the correct circulation so you'd say that this is the circulation that you want to create then you'll burst those bubbles into spaces and then from there you kind of understand where you want are the important tip here take it if you will don't take it if you don't want to take it but color your bubbles always you're asking me why and I have a perfect answer for you to understand where is every space for example if I color this cafe with this funky color I'll go to the lock pan and we'll color the same thing and then I have a reference a proper reference of which space is what even if I don't write the label for it just make sure that you differentiate between the [Music] thank you guys so much for watching and I hope this video was helpful for you if it is please don't forget to subscribe hit the bell give this video a thumbs up and thank you so much for watching this is the link that I promised you thank you for watching till the end it will be down below under secret thank you guys so Itachi and have a great time of the day wherever you are
