Interior Design - the design process

Interior Design is the planning, layout, and design of the interior spaces within a building........
including functional improvement, 
aesthetic enrichment, 
psychological enhancement of the interior space.

design is rational thoughts based on knowledge, gained through research and experience
design criteria
  • function and purpose
  • utility and economy
  • form and style

    image and meaning
intuition and imagination adds dimension to your design
phases of design

  • statement of problem; - pre design
  • collection of data;
  • analysis of data;
  • programming;
  • design concept;
  • design development;
  • construction documents
pre - design
collection of data
field measurements
document existing conditions

tools - Internet, city/town hall, site visits, photos

Architectural programming is the systematic process of gathering and analyzing information about a building or other setting, and then using that information to create guidelines for the performance of that setting. The total design process includes two stages: programming and design. In programming, the parts of a design problem are separated and identified. In design, these parts are put together to form a coherent design solution. The first task for any designer, and perhaps the most important, is determining the requirements of a proposed building or site—the programming.

conceptual design
brain storm
based on data program
basic ideas form

adjacency matrix - hierarchy of spaces
bubble diagrams - spatial relationships
quick sketches - look at many solutions
design images

schematic design
major functional and spatial relationships
develop your best concepts
start basic sketches
assign square footage

trace paper, design images

design development
finalize schematic - choose best design
start final drawings
chose materials, lighting, systems

auto cad, Internet, materials library

construction drawings
assign all dimensions
all materials selected
