Learn How to Apply the Principles of Sustainable Interior Design in Practice

This Sustainable Interior design course introduces students to the principles and practices of sustainable interior design, emphasizing the importance of eco-friendly materials, energy-efficient design strategies, and minimizing environmental impact while enhancing indoor environmental quality. The curriculum aims to equip students with the knowledge to make informed decisions that contribute to sustainability in their interior design projects.

The objectives of the course include understanding the fundamentals of sustainable interior design, learning about sustainable materials and products, exploring energy-efficient lighting and HVAC systems, and incorporating principles of sustainability into practical design projects.

The weekly breakdown covers various aspects of sustainable interior design, starting with an introduction to sustainable design principles and materials. Participants delve into energy efficiency, sustainable technologies, water conservation strategies, and methods for enhancing indoor environmental quality.

Through hands-on activities and assignments, students research sustainable materials, analyze their lifecycle and certifications, plan energy-efficient lighting layouts, and design water-efficient spaces. They explore renewable energy sources, strategies for improving air quality, natural daylighting, and acoustics, and apply these principles to design projects.

The final weeks focus on developing a comprehensive sustainable interior design project, where students apply the principles learned throughout the module. They present their projects, highlighting the use of sustainable materials, energy efficiency, and water conservation strategies, and receive constructive feedback from peers and instructors.

The practical tasks and assignments throughout the module enable students to deepen their understanding of sustainable interior design and develop practical skills to create beautiful and environmentally conscious spaces. By the end of the course, students not only enhance their awareness of the environmental impacts of interior design but also gain the tools and knowledge to create spaces that are both aesthetically pleasing and sustainable, contributing positively to the built environment.
