The student deal with small as well as large-scale interior design problems. These include residences,office environments,restaurants and commercial facilities. Every attempt is made
to simulate professional working conditions with "real" sites and requirements. Programming and space planning are central issues in solving these design problems.
In the beginning, this subject deals with our relation to space, form and the environment in a broad sense. Emphasis is on human factors: scale, materials and structures. The subject progress from the abstract to problem solving through analysis and include consideration of professional design problems of moderate scope.
In the later part of the subject, the design of large-scale spaces is studied with an emphasis on planning institutional, public and commercial spaces. The subject includes an exploration of complete solutions to environmental,interior, and architectural problems based on space analysis and planning. Coordination of furnishings, materials, user needs, and accessories is emphasized.

Individual assignments are carried out periodically with the same process to insure that the students understands the process and later on apply the same during their professional career. This process is divided into 3 phases:
Phase One: RESEARCH
This phase includes extensive research on anything and everything about the site and the subject of design.
1. TECHNICAL DRAWINGS:
Students are required to make all plans, sections and also envelops of the rough and neat models of the project from the plan already provided.
2. TECHNICAL RESEARCH:
Students are then required to collect data from "Time Saver Standards for Interior Design" on various aspects of the subject wtth their individual standards and dimensions.
3. SITE ANALYSIS:
Students are required to do a detail analysis of the site making diagrams about the structure, all the services like electrical, plumbing, sewerage, pedestrian traffic, solar direction, wind direction, etc.
4. PHOTOGRAPHIC SURVEY:
Students are required to do the photographic survey of the site. They are also required to case study of 3 more sites of the same topic to gather information about the latest trends of the market and also to broaden the perception about the subject. Out of the 3, at least 2 case studies have to be from the local market while the one can be researched from magazines, books, internet, etc. This research should be done according to various aspects of interior, like furniture, lighting, partitioning system, flooring, walls, and ceilings, etc, and at the end of the project; this research should be used for design decisions.
This phase consists of applying the complete research done in the previous phase your design. Keeping the research in the background students are required to work on the following areas first:
This will help the students to develop the understanding of relationships between different spaces and then come up with the most innovative solution for the organization of various functions into spaces.
Students are also required to work on a specific theme while they are working on their design. The idea of developing the theme is to help students develop a direction towards the space planning and help them identify the usage of material in the context of specific theme.
With the help of the above mentioned processes and by applying the research done in the previous phase, students can work towards the design, make improvements in their design after discussion with their teacher.
Phase Three: FINALIZING
This will consist of finalizing your design, working on all the details, working on your presentation, models and material boards.
INTERIOR DESIGN MA (FINAL)
Title of the course: Interior Design Studio II
Credit Hours: 10
Prerequisites: Interior design studio I
STRUCTURE OF THE COURSE:
Hours/ Week: 08
Duration of the Course: 32- 36 weeks (2 terms)
OBJECTIVES OF THE COURSE:
The interior design studio II in the first term explores design issues of added complexity in terms of the range of specialized issues of interior design addressed in the studio projects. These issues range from adaptive reuse of historic buildings to sustainable interiors to exploring the interface of interior design with other creative disciplines like music, fashion, cinema and literature.
Two design projects are taken up during the first term. At-least one project is concerned with an area of environment design i.e. adaptive reuse, sustainable design and design for physically challenged groups of society.
The second term is completely dedicated to the thesis project that is based on the exploration and research of the student's own area of interest.
Assignment 1 :
Space Planning and ambiance are not mutually exclusive but are intertwined
aspects of the same problem; ambiance is not derived in a void but is composed
of the following:
Concept is arrived at through analysis of the problem at hand.
Analysis is an enunciation of various ways to represent the problem.
Focus of the project is to do design intervention in an envelop of historical importance taking into account the historical and conservation issues as the basic stricture/perimeter for design interventions.
