Course details

This studio course is the first building block of space planning and introduces students to the methodology used by interior designers to conceptualize, analyze, and develop workable solutions to residential applications. Students will analyze existing floor plans, study furniture placement, construct a model, develop layouts for kitchens and bathrooms, document their research findings and design development in a sketchbook journal. Students will implement their own concepts and ideas in the planning of a small residential project with the option to use their freehand skills or AutoCAD as drawing tools in their final submission.
