Planning the Home for Occupancy; A Contribution of the Subcommittee on Occupancy Standards

Chicago, IL: Public Administration Service, 1950. Reprint of 1903 edition. Perfect Bound. Small quarto, pp. xiii, 56, indexed. Very Good. Item #21256

The Committee on the Hygiene of Housing was organized by the American Public Health Association in the conviction that the home is primarily an instrument of health, and that it is the duty of the public health profession to establish the fundamental health objectives which should govern the design of the dwelling. The first volume of this series, Planning the Neighborhood, dealt with the environment of the home and outlined the objectives which should be attained in site selection and development. This volume considers those problems involved in the general planning of the dwelling itself, and a third volume on Construction and Equipment of the Home was also in preparation at the time of publication. The contents are divided into five sections: the problems of home planning, provision of adequate dwelling space, basic functional space needs, development of space within the dwelling, and relationship of rooms to each other and to the external environment.
