INTR 4100 - Residential Directed Studies 2

Residential Interiors Part-time Studies Course

School of Construction and the Environment

Course Details

Students will apply the knowledge, concepts, skills and techniques learned in all previous courses to generate a creative and comprehensive solution to a multi-level new construction residential design project that supports human behaviour within the residential interior environment. Students will conduct research and gather information on a specific client profile that relates to needs that may include age, medical and/or physical limitations, social and/or cultural conditions. Final projects should demonstrate a clear concept and design process, a thorough understanding of design elements and principles, and the ability to provide innovative and practical design solutions that address client requirements. Students will be expected to articulate a project effectively both orally and visually, and integrate current and appropriate technologies into the design of a residential environment. Students will receive guidance from the instructor and/or guest critiques; however, it is a self-directed course where students are expected to arrive at their own design solution that addresses functionality, sustainability, design aesthetics, accessibility and environmental considerations while demonstrating code compliance throughout. Students will also be required to submit a working drawing and specification package.


65% in INTR 4000, INTR 3170, INTD 3110, INTD 3370, COMM 2320, and JOIN 4350.
