Wall elevations of individual interior spaces
Both commercial and residential projects sometimes require additional interior detail. The design planning phase often includes drawing design elevations to help determine where to place objects and other elements within a given space. This can help a team envision the commercial building designs or house plans as a whole.
An interior elevation is an orthographic projection—a two-dimensional representation of a three-dimensional space. This two-dimensional drawing of a wall (or series of walls) can have varying degrees of detail. Interior elevations can help give the team a front or side view of a room, developing in complexity as details are added throughout the project. They are often used to determine where appliances or built-ins should be positioned.
By creating an interior elevation drawing, you can figure out the placement of things like furniture, fixtures, ceiling height, or other decor you plan on including in your final design. Elevations are usually scaled drawings, and present a layout of a room on a vertical plane—from floor through the horizontal line to the ceiling—giving a more accurate idea of where and how things will fit together.
