INTD 5310 - Interior Construction Detailing

Interior Design Part-time Studies Course

School of Construction and the Environment

Course Details

This course will provide students with the skills required to progress from concept to detailed design. This stage is required prior to the preparation of construction drawings, which are used to communicate complex design solutions to consultants and trades. The detail sketching process develops the student's ability to turn design aspirations into practical results, while the student freely explores both idea and application. The focus is on the development of key design details taken from the students' own work, including sections, elevations and plans, in the preliminary presentation stage from INTD 5300 Degree Studio A: Healthcare. Then, through in-class lectures and labs, those preliminary designs will be taken to the next level of freehand-drawn details. This course advances and integrates the students' understanding of components and systems, such as materials, doors, windows, integrated ceiling design, acoustics, floor transitions and built-in millwork. Key concepts will be discussed, including detailing theory, articulation, expression, the relationship between the part and the whole, structural principles and material selection.

Prerequisite(s)

INTD 5100* and INTD 5110* (*may be taken concurrently). Corequisite: INTD 5300** (**must be taken concurrently).

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this course the student will be able to:

  • Assess the project to determine which parts of a design require construction detailing and refinement.

  • Communicate complex design solutions to consultants and trades on site.
  • Design interior details based on an understanding of structural principles, systems, and materials.
  • Justify the rationale for integrating specific interior design details within a project, taking into consideration how each detail impacts the total design solution.
  • Justify material and product selections that improve indoor air quality, are durable and easy to maintain, and are from renewable resources.
