Interior Design Level 2 is for students who have attended Interior Design Level 1 or completed an introductory level course in interior design and wish to further develop their skills and broaden their understanding of the process involved in designing a residential space.
The aim is to reinforce critical and three dimensional thinking and space analysis. Through a practical project, students will improve their technical drawing skills and presentation techniques, which will enable them to confront a simple design issue. The maximum number of students on the course is 12, which allows time for one-to-one advice.
Topics covered include:
- design elements and contexts
- kitchen design
- space analyses, bubble and analytical diagrams
- three dimensional thinking and space planning
- using colour for interior design projects
- axonometric and/or sketch model
- soft furnishing
The course offers an opportunity for students to:
- complete a design project from beginning (clients) to end (presentation)
- enhance their drawing skills and learn to produce an axonometric projection
- produce a colour palette of the propose interior
- construct, when and if required, a sketch model
- further develop the use of the sketchbook as a design tool
- understand different materials
- experiment with their ideas within the restriction of a space and brief
- understand the importance of explaining and presenting their work
- have a project to add to their design folio
In order to achieve these objectives you should engage with the project and complete homework between classes when necessary.Who should take this course?
The course is ideal for students who wish to improve their skills in space planning. Those considering further study in interior design will also benefit. Participants should have a serious interest in the subject matter.
