This studio course focuses on the advanced development of residential bathrooms and private spaces through lectures, research and field trips as well as individual and/or group assignments. Students will explore the historical evolution of bathrooms, dressing rooms, custom closets, exercise areas and home spas. Building on the design process established in previous residential studio courses, students will conceptualize, analyse and plan functional design solutions based on a detailed client needs survey, design and construction standards and sustainable design criteria. Students will implement the principles of universal and barrier-free design. Connections with local plumbing fixture suppliers will be established through guest lectures and/or field trips. Students will create working drawings and specifications, and will present their design solutions through formal presentations.
