Through exploratory mapping and practical, two-dimensional and bubble diagramming, this online unit in Interior Architecture Tangible Environment Studio from Curtin University will provide you with an in-depth understanding of spatial planning, adjacencies and hierarchies in design.
Delivered by Open Universities Australia, the unit teaches how to evaluate planning methodologies and use built-in and loose furnishing elements to define function and space of interiors, through studio work and function workshops. You will explore contemporary professional and industry design standards, along with how building codes are related to the design and planning of both domestic and commercial interiors, and the differences between the two.
You will examine a range of planning strategies and furniture, including typical sizes, layouts and styles of drawing, and vertical and horizontal access designs. The unit will cover how views, privacy and publicity should be taken into account within plans and designs, along with the effects of light and shade, and colour materiality. Students will also undertake construction documentation and detailing.
This unit is assessed through an assignment on reflection (20%), an assignment on design commercial interiors (30%) and a final design project (50%).
