SITizens Learning Credits

Overview

Modern living dictates that we spend 80-90% of our lives indoors, be it at work, home, or at play. Designers, architects, builders, and contractors are responsible for the construction of these spaces therefore it is the responsibility of these specialists to create environmentally sustainable spaces, that can also positively impact the occupants’ health and wellbeing. 

This basic course is designed to enable fellow interior designers and contractors to understand the fundamentals of sustainable and healthy 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 within the interior design industry.

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