6 tips to make your home functionally better

The distribution considerations of a home depend on the end user, but there are certain considerations that can be generalized.

1) Try to minimize circulation spaces.

2) Analyze the user's routine and adapt the project to the architectural project. When we link the spaces and activities that take place in a routine, minimizing the circulation of activities that we do, after a certain time is reflected in significant energy and time savings. For example, if we arrive with the vehicle at the garage, and the pantry or kitchen is not linked to this space, we will spend much more energy in taking purchases to a more distant place. This seems obvious but there are several similar aspects in the user's routine that are typical of the user, you have to ask yourself, what do you do when you get up? What do you do when you go to bed? works in housing?, etc.

3) The main bedroom on the ground floor. 

4) “Pure” spaces, without nooks and crannies, facilitate movement through the building.

5) An access hall facilitates and clarifies various aspects of circulation.

6) There are certain activities that should be linked but others that are better not. For example, if I arrive at my home and there is a social gathering, it is very possible that I prefer to go to the main bedroom first without going through the social area. This type of consideration must be asked in each case since it depends on the end user.
