Having your own home is every man’s dream. A home is a place where we spend quality time of our life with our family members. The actual design of the home building is directly responsible for the kind of comfort that we get in our home.
If the home plan is functional and one that creates harmony with the surroundings then the sheer house building built with bricks and mortar gets an emotional value and then only it can provide pure
comfort. Let’s have a look at the factors that govern the home plan.
1) Surrounding influencing feature.
The home plan will have a direct affect of some surrounding feature. A Few examples are.
* Sea shore
* Flowing river
* Railway Line
* Race Course
The presence of any one of these will directly affect the comfort levels of the residents of the home, hence necessary arrangements to restore the comfort levels will be carried out during the planning
Sometimes it will be necessary to cut off the extra noise (such as a Railway line) but in some cases more exposure will be provided (such as sea shore) in the home plan.
2) Topology of land.
The meaning of topology is the nature of land where the home building will be built. The topology of land includes it’s shape in plan as well as in elevation.
If the plot is not exactly rectangular in plan, then it will affect the plan of the home building as well. Also if the land is on hillside then excessive terracing shall be made to pay due respect to the
topology of the land during the home design planning phase.
Budget is indeed is very big factor in home design planning. The lack of enough budgets will affect in reduced “built up area” of the home. In some cases complete manipulation of some areas may also be required to meet the budget.
