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.

Student project

“The school was a great experience for me as it felt more like you work for a Design Company rather then siting in a school! A great benefit was that the school offers only 18 students a place every year , that made it really intense but on the other hand you could see a lot of progress week by week! All in all I must say the school felt to me like a big family which helped me a lot in order to settle in as a a graduate abroad!”
