This text will address the process of how a professional interior designer goes about planning and designing a residence. Taking the approach of an interview with a potential homeowner, students will create a profile of the end user, so that decisions can be made on program and price. It will simulate for the residential design studio the same conditions that a professional designer faces including client requirements, program, budget, existing plan boundaries, and site location, providing a framework for the student to do their own thinking and their own design work. Features: * Uses bubble and circulation diagrams taking designer from outside the entry into the interior space of the residence. * Projects include all residential typologies, such as apartments, townhouses, mixed-use buildings, and single family residences. * Separate chapters on kitchen and bathroom designs. * Includes sample "Client Interview" form to determine client's needs and develop program. * Case studies by interior designers and architects to illustrate the best examples of current residential design. * Base outline plans to use with a series of design projects or exercises in each chapter. * CD-ROM includes floor plans and furniture templates for students to use on base plans and/or all projects.
