Designing Commercial Interiors Christine M. Piotrowski, ASID, IIDA Elizabeth A. Rogers, IIDA The first and only book of its kind, Designing Commercial Interiors provides students and professional designers with expert guidance on the full range of practical, aesthetic, and psychosocial issues involved in designing for nonresidential interiors. Drawing on nearly a half-century of experience as designers and interior design educators, the authors provide comprehensive coverage of planning and design for all types of organizations and service facilities. Arranged for maximum ease of reference, the book comprises a series of self-contained chapters, each one providing comprehensive coverage of a specific category of commercial facility-including offices, hotels and lodgings, food and beverage facilities, retail facilities, health care facilities, institutional facilities, and banks. Each chapter begins with an overview of functional considerations, followed by an in-depth discussion of critical planning and design concepts and helpful, real-world examples. Chapters also include detailed information on key machine interface considerations, codes and regulations, and building systems, accompanied by professional-quality illustrations that help clarify issues related to space layouts,specialized equipment,and aesthetic concerns. In the concluding chapter, the authors provide valuable step-by-step guidance on project management for commercial interior designers. The only single-volume guide to designing for all types of nonresidential interiors, Designing Commercial Interiors is an ideal reference for students of interior design. It is also an indispensable working resource for professional interior designers, especially for those interested in making the move into one of today's most rewarding design specialties.
