DSGN07087 2019 Design Realisation II: Energy and Interior Environment
The module allows the learner to apply a cumulative series of practical studio and workshop assignments based on learning from Architecture Technologies & Environment 2 to a studio design project. Students must consider options for environmental management and control of both passive and mechanical systems for cooling/ventilation and heating, air quality and moisture management. Each learner must integrate a servicing strategy into their studio project. Students must consider acoustics, thermal comfort, glare, solar impact, indoor air, occupancy and health, and apply the outcome of external fabric analysis completed in Semester 01 to their studio project.
On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;
Integrate environmental management strategies within a design (namely passive or mechanical systems, heat, water and electricity), using appropriate drawing, modelling and testing methodologies.
Use appropriate diagraming and text to communicate the impact of an internal environment (of their own design) on human health, thermal comfort, air, moisture, and daylight control.
Use appropriate orthographic drawings and 3D diagramming to explain the layout and spatial impact of building services on the design of an interior environment.
Teaching and Learning Strategies
This practical module is taught using a combination of lectures, presentation, theoretical discussion and practical based tutorials, workshops, projects, fieldwork and visits. Both individual and group work modes are utilised throughout.
Module Assessment Strategies
The content of the module is applied to the students' design projects from a prior or current semester. Submission dates are as specified in the semester of study.
Repeat assessment will be dependent on failed components. This will be confirmed at formal exam boards.
Students realise the technical development of their Semester 1 studio projects through a series of practical studio and workshop assignments, which are linked to the themes from Architecture Technologies & Environment 1 in the prior semester:
- Environment Design – Introduction to the interpretation of the Irish landscape and the principles of environmental design. Relationship between climate, ecology, landscape and the built environment;
- Building Technology – Introduction to the construction methods and performance of buildings for an understanding of building technology of the built form and its impact on health and comfort;
- Building Materials – Understanding of the broad range of materials in architectural construction, their classification, properties, performance, relationship to the environment and appropriate application in buildings;
- Building Services – Introduction to the services and systems in buildings - passive and active. Energy, light, air, water, heating.
Methodologies relating to the design of building services and energy modelling are developed. During the module, the learner must integrate a servicing strategy into their own studio project. The learner must consider acoustics, thermal comfort, glare, solar impact, indoor air, occupancy and health.

2015-04-01 Construction and Detailing for Interior Design
ISBN 1780674775 ISBN-13 9781780674773
Construction and detailing are vital skills for all students studying interior design and architecture. This book is structured to encourage a diversity of techniques, allowing each student the means to find and put into practice the appropriate solution to fabrication issues and also to express their own personal aesthetic. The relation of existing building shells to the construction and detailing of new elements is also explored. Practical tips are given throughout the book, the roles of consultants, manufacturers, suppliers, and fabricators are explained, and theories of modern, sustainable approaches to interior detailing are discussed. The chapters are packed with professional, annotated drawings and explanatory photographs of techniques, materials, and tools. Through these, the principles of sound construction are explained. This second edition includes revised diagrams to increase clarity, more on sustainability, and more on services and lighting.

Their interiors need to occupy the imagination of their customers and to whet the appetite for a return visit. The design that gets the formula right will do as much to prolong the life of the business as the products on offer. This book includes a wide range of international projects and for each one there is a descriptive text, color photographs, floor plans, sections and construction, and decorative details. A bonus CD-ROM contains all the drawings as printed in the book, in both EPS and DWG (generic CAD) formats.

ISBN 178067340X ISBN-13 9781780673400
Office design has changed significantly over the last few years and is now one of the most innovative areas of interior design. It used to be the case that only the public spaces of an office were creatively designed, but increasingly the staff areas are seen as key reflections of the company brand as well. In more radical offices, there is also a growing belief in the importance of work areas as social spaces and a blurring of the distinction between work and recreation. This book explores in detail 42 of the best recent office design schemes, featuring projects from leading architects from around the world. Each project includes photographs as well as detailed drawings and plans, where appropriate, as well as informative text describing the design concept and process. A bonus CD contains drawings featured in the book, in both eps and dwg (generic CAD) formats.
