RISD CE Interior Design Studio I: Private Spaces

In this course you will gain understanding of designing creative residential living spaces as you actively participate in the programming and schematic design phases of a project, creating preliminary floor and developing a study model. This will be a hands-on experience as you learn about residential space in terms of proportion, scale, composition, balance, color, texture, light, surface treatment and material selection. Projects will include consideration of clients as you develop a concept statement, bubble diagrams, and criteria/adjacency matrix. This is part one of a two-part course.
