VHS Layout

VHS Layout board is a laser cut board representing in 3cm:1m scale of the VHS Bunker, equipment and furniture. Feel free to experiment with layouts for the space and add them to this wiki as proposals!

Do not write/mark directly on the base board. For supplementals/semi-permanent items use masking tape.

If you are moving the board around the space keep all the pieces together.

Layout rules of thumb:

  • All walk ways should be a minimum of 1 meter wide
  • For back-to-back chairs 1.5 meters is a comfortable minimum between desks
  • Be mindful of exits and safe routes to doors as well as keeping door areas clearing

Ideas for improvements:

  • A box to that holds the pieces
  • A magnetic board
  • pieces cut from fridge magnet “stuff”


Current Layout as of Jan 29, 2014 Current Layout as of Jan 29, 2014

Issues with the current layout

  • Desks behind pillars are not usable
  • back-to-back chairs in walk ways
  • poor presentation space
  • everything against walls
  • lots of dead space
  • Top of wooden storage shelves is not easily accessible


Proposed layout as of Feb 13, 2014 by Thomas L.

Logistical steps

Benefits of proposed layout

  • Slightly better use of space around pillars
  • Walk ways are clear of back-to-back chairs
  • Dedicated workareas in middle zone
  • work table area near the door is all dynamic fold-able tables which can be easily moved aside for presentations and allow for row chairs
  • presentation projector screen can be properly wall mounted
  • craft table in a more accessible area and more focused in a tool related work area
  • consolidated kitchen and lounge
  • whiteboard moved to a more visible wall
  • for superhacker houses we fold up all the tables and move them aside, more room for socializing while being better connected to the lounge
  • Servers have more area to be rotated against the wall to be more accessible and no longer block the workshop exit
  • Work benches in shop relocated to be more accessible around most sides and to be closer to the wall mounted tools
  • Nokia benches in workshop can be used as proper surfaces with the z-corp printer moved into the 3D printing area

Layout notes

  • Craft lockers are between the pillar and the wall between the craft table and lounge area
  • mobile workstation is removed and installed as the Solidworks station
  • Z-corp is moved under the table top for 3D printer area, 3D printers installed on table top, Solidworks + 3D printer area share space
  • All nokia benches in the bay along the wall are converted into pure shelving like the parts shelves
