TWe will begin learning about Scandinavian interior design with an introductory session to understand this styles origin, guiding principals, history, and evolution. We will give an overview of what will be taught in the class and establish a strong base of knowledge that will help understand the following topics throughout the course.
This section of modules is composed of topics that have to do with the elements that give a space their personality. We will talk about different design concepts and how our client’s needs will inform us on how much vegetation to bring in, what type of entertainment spaces they will use most, the pros and cons of wall types, and what organization system to use for storage spaces.
This module will wrap up the theoretical part of the modules by looking at specific rooms in a house and how the previous topics are applied within a space and in coherence with the rest of the design elements. We will look at Scandinavian bedrooms, kitchens, living rooms, bathrooms, and home offices and identify key elements that define the interior design. We will also talk about statement pieces to give our projects the finishing touches of unique character.
For the first practical project, students will work on designing a Scandinavian bedroom. Students must also create a unique storage solution to organize the closet space. They must provide a mood board along with color palettes, materials, and a diagram showing how the closet space will be organized, using SketchUp.
Design a kitchen space for a small apartment. We will provide a base model in SketchUp for you to make renders with the program.
Suppose a freelancer needs to accommodate a space in the living room for a home office desk space. Create a few detailed sketches of the desk space along with mood boards, material selection, and diagrams.
The last project for this course is a Scandinavian living room. The clients would like to include lots of vegetation and an upright piano.
The course ends with a practical exam. The students must present and defend their practical projects. In addition to the practical exam, the students sit an online test exam.
