Are you paying for the Negative Space?

While buying an apartment or an office, make sure to analyse the quality of the architectural plan, so that you do not end up paying for the space you will never be able to utilise. This space is called ‘Negative Space. Negative Space is the area which is not effectively used while construction. This part of the property is often neglected, used inappropriately as an afterthought.

The term ‘Negative Space’ comes from the world of art, where it was used as a composition tool between objects in both two- and three-dimensional work. However, in times of rising property prices, shrinking living areas and smartly designed homes, there should be no room for space that is not utilized efficiently.

Having no negative space in an apartment means, having no neglected or unutilized areas on the floor plan. Since the cost of your purchase is calculated on the basis of square foot area, every inch matters.Smartly designed apartments and other properties will always have the layout in such a way that your property smartly uses every inch of the space you’ve paid for,  while providing you an airy, efficient and comfortable living / working area.
