Undergraduate Course: Interior Design 4B: Design Studio (DESI10067)
|School||Edinburgh College of Art
||College||College of Humanities and Social Science
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 10 (Year 4 Undergraduate)
||Availability||Not available to visiting students
|Summary||This course will develop a design topic and associated site, as self-selected by the student, based on their previously gathered research. Through a transparent iterative process, they will formulate a final design solution for their chosen site. They will then focus in detail on a major space within their scheme, developing the area in detail, to a level that demonstrates a professional understanding of materials, to a recognised construction industry level of information.
This course involves students using their brief, site and topic research (as established in course Interior Design 4A) to developing design proposals, resulting in a final scheme proposal.
Students will gain an understanding of information required to successfully present design information at outline scheme design stage to scale. It will comply to the regulations as set out in the Scottish Building Standards for fire escape, stairs and ramps, and toilets. Final scheme should also meet recognized Government regulations for disabled access.
They will then focus in on one area of the scheme and develop and detail it to a much more advanced level, to include construction level drawings to scale. Students will learn about specifying of materials and detailing of interior elements. They will develop their final proposals in drawn and model form.
