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.

” The one week summer course was an excellent introduction to Interior Design. The whole process was broken down into manageable steps. The tutors modelled the processes, discussed and guided us through each stage. Therefore everyone felt successful, encouraged and creative. great value for money and inspirational.
