So if there is a vestibule that has to connect to the lobby space, this done with a door from lobby to vestibule and door from vestibule to outside and both doors need to swing out, correct?

Hi Coach,
I have a question for a similar topic.
I assume the Vestibule is a "circulation space" (i.e. in light yellow color)
So for a programmed area that is a circulation space in light yellow hatch ( a vestibule or a larger space) other than the Corridor, must be connected with door but not that wall opening? :roll:

Found a previous discussion:

Probably.

It depends. A vestibule is somewhat unique in that it's an anteroom. I would always use doors with vestibules and wall openings with other circulation spaces.

potentially that's why I failed :roll:
For a Vestibule, it has exit door directly to the exterior so unlikely you have to deal with dead end corridor. But for other relatively large circulation space (other than Lobby and CO...I got something larger than a Lobby!) you have to follow the 20' dead end corridor code + use wall opening. I treated it like a normal room in the exam :|

I think the vestibule had a square footage assigned to it, did you stay within 10% of that?
