BS - Vignette First Attempt - Please Review!

Postby bradfordpayne » Thu Oct 12, 2017 5:08 pm

First attempt at the vignette:
1. Can the rigid duct cross over a light fixture?
2. Some of the lights are centered in the room, but more than 4' from the wall, is this acceptable?
3. What is a good rule of thumb in diffuser placement, should they be in a different tile than the light, or can it be in the same? Similar question to the return?

Incorrect spacing for all 2x4 lights.
Accent lights are too far from the wall. Sketch circles should intersect each other at the face of the wall.
Poor air movement on the west side of the architect's office.

Thank you, I will give it another shot!

What is the size of the circle for the accent lights? Just want to double check.

Sparky, if there is poor air movement on the west side of the architects office wouldn’t that also apply to the drafting studio? Is it because the AO office supply and return are offset?

No. Supply on one side and return on the other is not the issue. In the architect's office neither is close enough to the west side of the room.
