LO5 Apply the relevant regulations and standards to small scale interior architecture design strategies.
Pre-requisite learning
Module Recommendations

This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is strongly recommended before enrolment in this module. You may enrol in this module if you have not acquired the recommended learning but you will have considerable difficulty in passing (i.e. achieving the learning outcomes of) the module. While the prior learning is expressed as named MTU module(s) it also allows for learning (in another module or modules) which is equivalent to the learning specified in the named module(s).

Incompatible Modules
These are modules which have learning outcomes that are too similar to the learning outcomes of this module. You may not earn additional credit for the same learning and therefore you may not enrol in this module if you have successfully completed any modules in the incompatible list.

Module Content & Assessment

Indicative Content
Non-domestic Small Scale Interiors
Introduction to the fundamental basics of the design process for non-domestic small scale projects. Emphasis is on research & analysis of exemplary architecture, and focused design development & exploration; in the form of freehand drawing & model making to arrive at creative interior architecture proposals that consider clients and end-users equally, and comply with the relevant regulations & standards.
Sketch Model Design
Sketch/study modelling for non-domestic small scale projects. Exploration of materials & finishes to communicate design proposals, and make informed design decisions in 3-dimensions. Emphasis is on using the model as a basis for form, scale & lighting studies.
Concept and Detailed Sketch Design
Concept and detailed sketch design proposals for non-domestic projects. Brief analysis, and client, end-user & building type profiling. Emphasis is on building/design precedents and the exploration of form, space, material, finishes, colour palettes and detailing in order to illustrate viable design intent.
Final Design & Presentation
Final design proposals & presentation for non-domestic small scale projects. Emphasis is on 'fit for purpose' innovative & sustainable design solutions that meet a specific design brief and programme. And design/graphic representation & oral presentation skills to communicate design strategies, both verbally and non-verbally for critique and evaluation.
