Bathroom mirrors blocks use in architecture drawing – 1
In architectural drawings, a bathroom mirrors is typically represented by a simple rectangle or square symbol with the letters “BM” or “BRM” (for bathroom mirror) written inside. The symbol is usually placed in the appropriate location within the bathroom space.
The size and shape of the symbol should be proportional to the size and shape of the mirror it represents. It is typically used as reference point in the drawing, and not considered as an obstacle or blockage in the architectural layout.
In addition to being represented by a symbol, a bathroom mirrors may also be shown in an architectural drawing by a detailed elevation or section. This would show the exact size and shape of the mirror, as well as any framing or other details. Additionally, the location of the mirror relative to other fixtures in the bathroom, such as the sink and toilet, would be indicated in the drawing.
It’s also worth noting that, depending on the design and layout of the bathroom, the mirror may be mounted in a way that could cause the mirror to block or obstruct certain elements in the bathroom.
For example, if the mirror is mounted above a sink, it could block the view of the sink from certain angles. In such cases, the mirror would have to be represented in the drawing in a way that accurately depicts this obstruction.
Finally, depending on the style of the bathroom and the desired aesthetic, the bathroom mirror can also be a focal point of the room, in this case the designer may want to place some more emphasis on it in the drawing.
