Can emphasis, obscure, create mood, add interest, shape space, and provide variablility in the environment. It can also change color and materials by iys type, color, temperature, intensity and position.
Consists of two spaces whose unique limits can be percieved but that share a common space.
Spaces Sharing a Common Space Spaces
Spaces retain their unique identity and are linked with a third space that has it's own identity.
Functionally: they provide finish, concealment,protection, sound modulation, light reflectance, and fire resistance. Aesthetically: they can convey meaning, denote status, create style, symbolize ideals, and generally add to the overall look of the space.
Is a general or overall idea of how a design problem will be approached.
Make interior space, they are often an afterthought, relegated to the functional duties of it.
Spaces are on a predefined, regular pattern of points or intersecting parallel lines.
Establishes stability and a fixed reference plane.
Components of Interior Design
Elements common to all interior design and architecture that designers use to solve clients' functional requirements. (Walls, ceilings, floors, steps, doors and glazed openings)
A unique material in that it can establish separation and connection simultaneously.
Open Plan Arrangement
There are no space-defining partitions within the existing limits of the building.
Smaller-scale components of interior construction. They are simply a way of fitting the larger components together, resolve functional problems or enhance the overall design concept.
The primary space defining element in interior design.
It occupies a significant portion of the visual field in a space. It must be selected to satisfy the client's basic functional needs and budget, but also carry its own meaning and contribution to the overall design intent of the space.
Art, lamps, vases, pillows, and anything else that is not a part of the structure or architecture of the space and not a peice of furniture.
The most common type of interior relationship. Each space or room has its own use and functional requirements and is separated by a partition or other construction element.
Important points of transition between rooms or spaces. Can celebrate movement and transition, impress, set status, and generally enhance the design intent of the space.
Space Within Another Space Spaces
Spaces created when a clearly identifable space or room is placed as an object within a larger open space.
Spaces are organized based on proximity to each other.
Changes in horizontal level, create vertical movement and define space.
