Interesting. My approach is similar, I use following schema:
/    - first primary partition, 3 to 10GB (depends)
swap - second primary partition
/var - third partition or LVM, 10GB to max, depends from services
/srv - fourth partition or LVM, if I need extra space

I have questions about Your schema:
- why swap as first partition? 
- why /space and not /srv or /home?
