Overview

This course aims to introduce popular interior design themes, concepts and terminologies to practitioners within and related to the design and building industry. The course will provide participants with the opportunity to build a common knowledge base by establishing a set of common visual language and descriptors. At the completion of the basic course, participants will understand the key elements and differences that define design themes.

This training is designed to enable fellow interior designers and contractors to understand the basics of interior design, specifically for Singapore homes.

Materials shared in the basic tier are designed to be easily understandable and applicable for industry partners who might have minimal experience adult learners within the interior design industry. To build a coherent knowledge base through the establishment of a common language and descriptors, participants are encouraged to complete all 3 courses which will be conducted on separate days.

This course is part of the Interior Design Course for Singapore Residences – Design for Interiors series.
Designed as a 3-tiered series (basic, intermediate, and advanced), these courses aim to arm participants with fundamental knowledge, key concepts, and tools on how to Discover, Design and Deliver their projects to clients.
