  • Floor plan: The most fundamental architectural diagram is a floor plan. It is the view from the front that shows the arrangement of spaces at a particular level of the building. In other words, it is a horizontal cut through the building which shows walls, door opening, windows, and other features at that level.
  • Site plan: A site plan shows the whole context of a building or a group of buildings. It introduced the property boundaries and means of access to the site. It also shows the nearby structure to analyze whether the building is relevant to the design or not.
  • Elevation: An elevation is a view of a structure from one side. It is the most fundamental view to represent the external appearance of the building. It represents the front side of the building
  • Cross-section: A cross-section is a section that cuts the building vertically in the same way as a floor plan but with a change in axis.

Other standard views are detailed drawing and isometric and axonometric projections.
