Interior Design Intensive
For those with limited time available, the course provides the technical and theoretical concepts related to interior spaces. Students learn that 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.
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).
Through looking at the methodologies in developing a concept, and the applicable representation techniques of an interior design project participants understand how to introduce the concept and vision of a luxury brand in their designs and analyze various design trends, different furniture styles and the concepts of scale and proportion.
As well as having key design skills, successful interior designers respond to the ‘identity’ of a space by taking on-board the physical and performance needs of the space in question.
Participants work toward producing ‘sensations’ by investigating the relationship between location, building, design and space researching and analyzing their influences on emotions combined with functionality. 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. 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.
