DESIGN: Circulation/ Defining Public & Private Space

My Senior Thesis project involved a lot of space planning. With over 12,000 square feet and an abundance of spatial requirements I had to define circulation for not only the customers, but also staff (which oftentimes is an afterthought).
Below: A diagram simply to define public and private spaces. When designing for commercial projects you want to keep public (rose) and private (brown) separate.
You can also apply these space planning techniques to residential design, plan out each family members circulation patterns to determine which spaces need a clear circulation path.
