Module Description: Interior Architecture Design Studio to facilitate the development of expertise in research and conceptual investigation of design strategies and design schematics for an individually directed focus in Interior Architectural Design.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Design a conceptual organisation and critical design strategy for a complex interior architecture project.
LO2 Identify functional and spatial design requirements for all user groups and occupants.
LO3 Propose a conceptual and critical design strategy for issues of structural design, construction and engineering esign for a complex interior architecture project.
LO4 Formulate a conceptual and critical design strategy for responding to environmental conditions and issues of comfort in a complex interior architecture design project.
LO5 Compose conceptual and critical strategies which satisfy user needs and social conditions, planning and urban issues for a complex interior architecture design project.
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 CIT module(s) it also allows for learning (in another module or modules) which is equivalent to the learning specified in the named module(s).
No recommendations listed
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
Architectural Design Brief
Provide the necessary information to describe the rationale, purpose, goals, costs, risks, constraints, time and performance requirements of the project, the direction and scope of the project.
Architectural Feasibility Study
A rigorous analysis and documentation of all aspects of the anticipated building, to define: The goals of the project; Opportunities and constraints of the designated site; Key issues influencing the design; The sizes and design criteria for every room in the building; The limits of the project site and the scope of all related site improvements, such as roads, landscaping, and utilities; Design criteria for all building systems Estimated construction cost.
Site Analysis and Contextual Study
Inventory, research, analysis, and synthesis of basic data as it relates to a specific site and context.
Environmental Assessment
Inventory, research, analysis, and synthesis of basic data as it relates to a specific environment.
Research and Investigation of Contemporary Issues
Appraisal of contemporary challenges in interior architecture and identification of direction for project.
Precedent Studies
Identification of principles from past practices in design, technology, environment and context, "learning from what went before".
Schematic Design and Conceptual Design Strategies
First phase in the design of a project, preparation of schematic diagrams giving a general view of the components and the scale of the project after detailed investigations.
