Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Plan a sustainable design from a self directed focus within contemporary challenges in interior architecture.
LO2 Create a complex sustainable design for a interior architecture project.
LO3 Integrate structural, construction, mechanical and electrical design requirements into a complex interior architecture design project.
LO4 Create a design that innovatively manages environmental response and human comfort in an interior architecture design project.
LO5 Evaluate legislation, planning and urban issues for interior architecture design.
LO6 Assess the impact of sustainable strategies upon design resolution.
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.
No incompatible modules listed

Module Content & Assessment

Indicative Content
Preliminary Design Resolution
Develop design concept to satisfy project requirements, and other relevant information, develop sketch documents to enable further discussion and development of the design. Conceptual Design: Create the high-level design description; Identify major components; Feedback any derived requirements that result from the process; Resolve any omissions or errors; Test features that are necessary to meet performance and quality requirements; Identify constraints.
Design Testing
Design testing through appropriate simulation and/or life cycle assessment.
Design Development
Develop the design concept, fine-tune the design, making any changes required, through to the point where the Concept Design drawings meet the requirements of the design brief.
Mechanical & Electrical, Structural ,Engineering Design Coordination & Integration
Integration of all engineering requirements into final design to develop high-performance/ sustainable project.
Environmental Response and Human Comfort
Integration of requirements for environmental response and issues of human comfort into final design to develop high-performance/ sustainable project.
Social, Economic, planning and Urban Conditions
Integration of requirements for social, economic, legislation, planning and urban conditions into final technical design to develop high-performance/ sustainable project.
Complete Interior Architecture Design
Complete intergration and resolution of all components for self-directed Interior Architecture project.
