As with the best-selling 'Architects Pocket Book' this title includes everyday information which the architect/designer normally has to find from a wide variety of sources and which is not always easily to hand.
Focusing on kitchen design, this book is of use to the student as well as the experienced practitioner. It outlines all the information needed to design a workable kitchen, including ergonomics, services such as water and waste, appliances, and material choices for the floor, walls and ceiling. There is no similar compendium currently available.

'It is invaluable for the smaller architectural practice. Packed with drawings, tables and symbol guides, this is a must for use at the drawing board, computer or on-site.'
'A good easy to read guide for site use'
Alan Jarvis, Lecturer
'This little gem is essential for any architect, builder, surveyor, engineer, student, in fact anyone connected with the building industry. Information is clearly presented in a nononsense style. The well-illustrated diagrams help the building regs. appear almost logical'
