Interior Design Intensive

Create the ‘identity’ of residential, retail, public and exhibition spaces.
One year courses
These programmes provide a thorough knowledge of the technical and theoretical concepts related to fashion meeting the needs of those with limited time available, or for participants that have either little or no prior experience.


Planning an interior space means creating a story of styles, moods, colour and light, reflecting contemporary lifestyle living, or interpreting a theme from a given design brief. For those with limited time available, this course provides the technical and theoretical concepts related to interior spaces, looking at the methodologies in developing a concept, and the applicable representation techniques of an interior design project. Participants begin looking at various interior styles for domestic space, including the impact of furnishings, materials and fabrics, patterns, colours and shades, progressing onto more complex projects in commercial retail, and leisure spaces (e.g. restaurants, bars, leisure clubs). They understand how to introduce the concept and vision of a luxury brand in their designs and analyse various design trends, different furniture styles and the concepts of scale and proportion. With an introduction to technical drawing skills (CAD) and freehand sketching techniques participants are able to demonstrate perspective in design proposals, and prepare project layouts. They learn how to evaluate and prepare interior colour charts and manage their own sketchbook of research and moodboards. As well as key design skills, successful interior designers respond to the ‘identity’ of a space. They work toward producing ‘sensations’, taking on-board demands of physical wellbeing and performance needs of the space in question. Participants investigate the relationship between location, building, design and space researching and analysing their influences on emotions combined with functionality. Key historical moments in interior design further assist creative thinking, and development of their own individual style and ‘signature’ in a design proposal. Throughout the course focus is given to the needs and creativity of interiors specific to the dynamic and competitive world of fashion and luxury.
