Course will be commencing on 26.03.2024. Bundle holders will be provided with priority for admission to this course.
This is a follow on course from the course in Interior design and decoration I, but does not require higher level of skills. It aims to provide further information and practice to all people from various backgrounds, whether it is for their own homes or for their careers. The course continues to be project-based with fun interactive sessions, group work and discussions, but also offers a higher level of specialized informative lectures, PowerPoint presentations and increased emphasis on interior design and decoration practice.
The course involves four practical design projects with lectures specialized in specific areas of the home. Students are required to work with real rooms ideally from a friend or family member who can simulate the role of a client. This aims to provide students with the experience of dealing with specific scenarios and apply the principals demonstrated from previous course and specialized lectures. Lectures and work projects will be based on the following areas: in-between spaces (entrances, halls, staircases, corridors and landings), Open plan living (living, dining and kitchen), multifunctional spaces (spare bedrooms, children rooms, office/study areas, bathrooms and enquires) and entertaining areas (Bars, games room, outdoor areas, pool areas, yards, terrace areas). Students will be required to present style boards, floor plans and technical drawings for each project.
This is a 26 hr guided learning programme. Students need to invest more hours in private study and home assignments.
Lessons are held as indicated on the prospectus and website.
