Interior Design - Module Two

Course description

Upon completion of Interior Design - Module One, join us on Interior Design - Module Two to hone your analytical design skills and develop your own personal interior design methodology. Module Two will focus on designing for a commercial interior space.

During the course, you'll be encouraged to study and use design references while you work to improve your technical drawing for interiors. We'll introduce you to increasingly complex design issues and the challenges of designing for the commercial interior design environment.

We'll also explore one-point perspective and model making in relation to designing for an interior, as well as lighting and staircase design.

Please note that this course requires dedication; students should therefore allow time to work on their design project outside of the class.
