Diploma Architectural Interior Design

\”I really appreciate Inchbald School. The course was one of the most amazing experiences I have had in my life.\”

Sarah Hammond (Inchbald Online)

\”I was already working as a garden designer for local clients but knew I wanted to grow my business with the weight of a really good design school behind me. I took the Inchbald online diploma as it allowed me to keep working whilst studying. It was hard work but the course was very well put together, with proper deadlines to meet and plenty of support from tutors, other students and online forums. I felt a real sense of achievement when I finished the course. A year later I gained accreditation from the Society of Garden Designers which is the only professional association for garden designers in the UK.\”

\”I can honestly say making the decision to sign up to this course was one of the best things I have done, I’ve found it fantastic and would be happy to recommend it to anyone seriously considering a life in this exciting world.\”

Eva-Elisabeth W Knudtzon, Visuelle Designs, Norway (Inchbald Online)

\”As online student you also get to know students from all around the world and this gives you a wonderful insight into many different cultures and the way they live through their individual interior design. I have made many good friends and useful contacts.\”

\”Inchbald is one of the best things I have ever done in my life. I hope to come back one day.\”

Eva-Elisabeth W Knudtzon, Visuelle Designs, Norway (Inchbald Online)

“I congratulate you and I admire your fantastic work to get the education to such a high level and I promote it in Norway as often as possible. Thanks to the Inchbald and my major design project for the historic Hotel Ullensvang in Norway, I am now their interior designer.”

Claire Worlidge (Inchbald Online)

\”Having done a bit of adult education I am totally in awe of the way the course is structured. It\’s so clever how new layers are introduced and how, with the activities and assignments, new skills are taught and practiced. and all by distance learning! The Session notes are so clear and manageable and the feedback from other tutors and students really helpful. \”

Debbie Cavit, Cavit & Co, New Zealand

\”To have kept Inchbald at the top of your field for 54 years is absolutely wonderful. Congratulations!\”

Catherine Carpenter – Director, Folk of London (Inchbald Online)

\”I have an MA in Architecture and worked as a Senior Project Manager for a Specialist Construction Company for 6 years. I decided to take this course to learn about interiors and develop a portfolio which would allow me to set up my own practice. In order to afford the course I needed to continue working, so on-line is the perfect choice for me. I\’m really enjoying it, the course work is detailed, interesting and challenging. I’m always raving about it to my friends. The online is comprehensive, thorough and the pace is fast, and this gives you proper sense of the reality of design production timescales.\”

I wanted to say first and foremost how much I enjoyed the past year at Inchbald, and how much I have learnt from the experience.
\”I have had quite a few offers of internships from company\’s such as Staffan Tollgard and others. I am currently interviewing for a project management position at Savills, which will expose me to the entire scope of developing and managing property.
Thank you so much for putting on such a great course, I thoroughly enjoyed it!\”

Drafting Drawing

Introduction to Drafting Techniques

Why do we use drafting to communicate our ideas?

We draft our ideas so someone else can understand your designs and to construct from them. You and all those involved in a project need to use a common language or form of communication that can be understood by all parties.

The old saying that a picture paints a thousand words could not be more apt for the design industry and so it is pictures that designers use as their main form of communication. If you tried to describe how a cabinet is built in written form is nearly impossible, takes a long time to read and leaves a lot to the imagination.

For example the description of a cabinet for manufacture.

I would like you to make me a cabinet. It needs to be 2 meters long and half a meter in depth and 90% of a meter high. I would like it to be made of mahogany with the grain shown to be quite a deep look and vertically run. The top of the cabinet needs to protrude over the leading face by 40 mm and be also 40 mm deep and I would like it to be rounded to a diameter of 20mm. In fact make it a bull nose. The interior of the cabinet is also to be mahogany and to have three adjustable shelves inside it. Space the adjustment holes at 20 mm intervals and use chrome plated steel pegs to hold the shelves in position. Each peg should be about an inch long and not to protrude through the exterior of the cabinet. It will need to have four doors and they are to be hung on self closing hinges with chrome plated steel D handles fixed 100 mm down from the top of the cabinet.

By the time you have finished writing all this and the instructions for the rest of the project you will have produced a book that is very large as well as very confusing. It is also difficult for the person manufacturing the cabinet to see at a glance your intentions and the details that you would like.

Now do not confuse this with a specification, which is illustrated here and is expanded in the Contracts and Co-ordination, Project Management area. A specification is an outline document covering the specific industry standards and conditions of contract that are required. Many industry professionals such as quantity surveyors and project managers love specifications and want you as the designer to put in as much design detail and quantities as possible. They do this to make their job easier and put the responsibility on you. My advice after over twenty years in this industry is to keep the written specification to a practical minimum and retain the detail and quantities of items on your drawings. The drawings are what you as a designer have a natural ability to communicate with. Leave the “word smitthing” to the lawyers and project managers and don’t let them frighten or bully you into doing otherwise.

You are the designer. Show your designs as drawings.

Now to give the other professionals their dues we have three main forms of documents to describe a building or interior project.

By Drawing this is your form of communication.

By Specification this is also your form of communication but crosses into the realm of the quantity surveyor and project manager.

By Schedule this is the specialist field of the quantity surveyor, which measures and accurately quantifies the project for the contractors to price from.

In my opinion a drawing can be all that is required for a project to go ahead and be built accurately. However if the drawing is to be used as a legal document, the scope of work and standard is based upon the drawing and a fee is offered and accepted for the work described on the drawing, then all relevant clauses such as building standards, guarantees etc should also be included or referred to on the drawing.

This is why we have specifications, to ensure that all the legal standards and guarantees are in place for the work to be done to. It describes a standard.

To include all of this information on the drawings would make them rather cumbersome and detract from the main intent of the drawing. With the use of modern word processing packages the standard document or specification can be kept and altered per project. It saves an enormous amount of time, the same way that using a standard detail or computer based drawing package can save time, these will be covered further here.

So in conclusion, drawing what you require is the most descriptive of the three documents. In larger contracts all three documents would be used, and that is what this area of the web site is based on.

The documents that you produce form a contract therefore you develop an accurate description or intent of what you require by drawing or drafting the item of work. This has to be as accurate as possible or have the intent clearly defined e.g. any interpretation that the contractor makes must be discussed with the designer and agreed to in writing before proceeding, as this document will form a legal contract. Therefore the person who constructs the item to the drafted design for payment must follow the design accurately or they have not completed their end of the contract and are in breach of it.

“Misha is an amazing designer. She was able to capture everything that I was looking for and exceeded my expectations in her design. Misha has a great personality, making the experience of the renovations a lot of fun despite all of the hard work that was required to get the job done. I would highly recommend Misha to anyone looking to make their space as amazing as mine turned out!”

“Thanks to Misha our once dreary and boring master bedroom is now a truly amazing oasis. Bringing a unique design point of view, we had no idea how spectacular a new accordion glass door and 70 re-claimed shutters on our ceiling, juxtaposed with a clean and modern chandelier, would create such a magical retreat. Her color choices not only worked well in the room but also compliments the colors that we already had in the home, leaving a cohesive imprint (savings from not having to do more updates!) Everyday we feel we are waking up, or going to bed, in a charming boutique hotel suite – best investment we have made in our home”.

Wendy & James Brown

We had a vision for our home but no time or energy to do anything about it. Misha listened, asked a few questions. and NAILED it! She is totally without ego, and obviously extremely gifted at what she does. We are so thrilled with the outcome, and everyone that sees our place is in awe. Highly recommend. Well done, Misha and THANK YOU!
