Term One:      Complete concept proposal for a hotel room and en-suite bathroom

  • re-visiting existing skills and adding new methods to design a realistic proposal for a new hotel:
  • quick brief analysis and concept design
  • plan the space
  • work in 3-d to understand the whole volume
  • sketch lighting layout
  • select furniture, materials and bathroom fittings
  • present proposals to the client in the form of analysis, development sketches, inspirational references, planning and 3-d drawings

Term Two:     Information for costing and evaluation

If the client likes your ideas they will need more information to work out if the proposal is viable – practically and economically; drawings and schedules for costing and fabrication:

  • FF&E schedules – christmas holiday homework
  • simple formats for furniture, fittings and equipment
  • joinery fabrication
  • using model-making and sketching develop the hotel wardrobe space and prepare large scale construction drawings for assessment by the fabricators on a visit to a joinery workshop
  • detail design
  • examine materials, components and junctions in detail: convert the bathroom sketch plan into information for construction including plan, elevation, section, axo or perspective and key details
  • present FF&E schedules, joinery drawings and the bathroom drawings, together with the concept design and workbook

This is the third step towards gaining The Professional Certificate in Interior Design and requires completion of Module One and Two before applying.

The Interior Design school attracted me because of it’s focus on a really broad range of disciplines and I wanted to explore the inner architect in me. Colour and finishes are just part of the spectrum and the course is perfect for those who truly have a love for interior spaces and want to take it seriously. I turned my back on a corporate career and joined the school after a short taster course – the tools given by Iris and her team are many and you will leave with the training and confidence to go out into the world and start designing commercially for others.
