This unit and IAR2114 are the key units for developing interior architecture design capabilities. In this unit, the focus is on exposing students to problems which include a variety of interior architectural factors, and applying methodologies to coordinate their analysis and to achieve a holistic integrated design that addresses human needs. The projects are set in a variety of contexts, involving simple construction and structural requirements and basic service issues.


On successful completion of this unit, students should be able to:

  1. undertake a simple interior architecture project, involving the determination and resolution of user requirements, construction, structuring, servicing, aesthetics
  2. communicate the design with presentation drawings and models as well as technical documentation
  3. evaluate the effectiveness of the design methodologies they are applying
  4. explain the reasoning behind their choice of methodology, media, design options and solutions
  5. account for the social and cultural content of their design decision-making
  6. understand and be able to apply the rules of occupational health and safety appropriate to the unit of study.
