COURSES  Summer One Week Course / Interior Basics – module 1

INTERIOR BASICS - Module One

One Week  9 July - 13 July 2018
Monday to Friday 10:00am - 4:00pm
Cost: £750 (incl of current vat)

Learning takes place through a structured timetable of informal talks, group discussion and practical tasks. The course content centres around the interior design of a garden room project – an existing, prefabricated, architect designed ‘Eco Space’. Students are given a skeleton brief for the work space of a creative practitioner as a starting point.

By experiencing the combined teaching methods of lectures and practical studio work, the student will gain a basic understanding of:

  • To develop a stimulating and realistic design brief, analysing the practical and style requirements of a given client.
  • To express the design concept through an image board.
  • To read, measure and draw plans and elevations to scale.
  • To design and space plan at a scale of 1.20.
  • To appreciate the fundamentals of colour theory and its practical application.
  • To develop a materials palette as an expression of colour.
  • To research and source appropriate furniture, lighting and fixtures.
  • To begin to analyse the environmental impact of design decisions.
  • To compose and present verbally and visually, a finished project.

This is the first step towards gaining The Professional Certificate in Interior Design and a necessary requirement before applying for Modules Two, Three and Four.

“I have assessed several student projects and I am always very impressed at the amount of knowledge that the students have amassed in a short space of time. They are always a very focused group”
