This module explores sustainable interior design principles and materials. Participants will learn about energy efficiency, resource conservation, and indoor environmental quality. Through discussions and analyses, they'll understand sustainable material selection and certifications like FSC and GREENGUARD.
The Sustainable Interior Design Practices module explores energy efficiency and renewable energy integration within interior design. Participants learn about energy-efficient lighting and HVAC systems, including planning layouts and designing sustainable HVAC systems. They also delve into the integration of renewable energy sources such as solar and wind power into design projects, creating proposals to incorporate these solutions. The module fosters practical skills and insights to promote sustainability in interior design, contributing to environmentally conscious practices in the built environment.
Students embark on developing a comprehensive sustainable interior design project, integrating principles learned throughout the module. They discuss project progress, tackle challenges, and prepare for the final presentation. During the presentation, students showcase their sustainable design projects, emphasizing the use of sustainable materials, energy efficiency, and water conservation strategies. A constructive feedback session follows, where strengths and areas for improvement in each project are discussed, fostering growth and refinement in sustainable design practices.
