INTERIOR BASICS - Module One

FULLY BOOKED

One Week  10 July - 14 July 2017
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.

After having worked in marketing, I was attracted to the one year course at The Interior Design School. Its condensed curriculum covered every aspect of interior design (space planning, lighting, furniture detailing, materials). The high ratio of teachers to students meant a very personal approach and enabled me to build up a portfolio of work in residential, office and retail design. The course gave me the confidence to effectively change careers and built the skills needed to do so.         Annemarie van Rietgraduate 2000
