This unique course aims to provide you with a balanced approach to the theory and practical skills needed to successfully apply interior architectural design principles for property development within the broad context of urban design. You will gain an understanding of the skills that are essential to architectural design development, visual representation and will be encouraged to develop various hand drawing methods; as well as computer simulation techniques to develop your design projects. The course explores systems of regulation through which urban and rural developments operate, from the viewpoint of investors, developers and ultimately the occupiers of buildings. During the course, you will explore current design and development principles surrounding the change of use of a building and how this can directly and indirectly impact on the surrounding urban area. Topics would include design feasibility, conservation, preservation, ‘Secure by Design’ and ‘Home Zones’ design and development principles as well as the construction technology and building regulations required for many types of buildings, interiors and urban developments.
