This publication has two modules contained in separate volumes. The first module deals with models of care, while the second is a catalogue of functional spaces. VOLUME 2: FUNCTIONAL SPACE CATALOGUE The second volume provides more detailed information to assist the design phase of the project; it should be consulted after you have become acquainted with the MoCs here. Each functional space card in the catalogue provides a more detailed description of the activities performed in a specific space as well as essential furniture, equipment and fittings. Each space is further classified in terms of requirements for finishes. These cards should guide the choice of materials for each space. Currently there are 61 cards in the Functional Space Catalogue. Each functional space card also provides an illustration of how items may be organized in the allotted floor area taking into consideration ergonomic and clinical principles.6 Many also have a three-dimensional axonometric view, a plan view and a section view.
