Abstract: Increased enrollment of students majoring in interior design has created problems of limited space for the activities performed in laboratory classes. The major activities performed in a college interior design laboratory were determined through conversations with staff members and from personal observations. These were: drafting, selecting samples, rendering color, displaying materials, teaching, and exhibiting student work. Drafting table arrangements with minimum, good, and excellent clearance were drawn to determine space requirements. The materials used in the performance of each activity were grouped into storage units. These groupings served as the basis for storage units designed to represent the principles of good storage, such as ease of handling stored articles, visibility of stored articles, clearance space related to the types of stored articles, and storage units located near the area where activities are performed.
