CONCEPTS OF DESIGN

Explained!

The desire to create a pleasant environment is as old as civilisation itself. It was stated earlier the need for “personal” environment and scale. A man’s reaction to the scale of a small house is quite different from his reaction to a large high-rise building.

Almost all principles of design for interiors can be comprehended with clear analytic understanding and common sense, without regard to dogmatic rules.

If a beautiful an eight feet tall sculpture is placed in a shop with a ceiling height just an inch higher than the piece, it would obviously look out of scale. If a space is planned so that all the heavy and massive pieces of furniture are pushed toward one end of the room, with nothing on the other side, the room would obviously look out of balance. Yet balance and symmetry applied as inviolate design principles would result in very formal, very traditional, and somewhat dull interiors.

Most interiors consist of a series of interrelated spaces. It is important that the various spaces be designed in a sequential relationship to each other, not only in terms of planning but also in terms of the visual effect. A successful interior should be cohesive within each area and cohesive as a totality. It must above all relate to the building and to the architectural concept.

Interior design may seem easy to you but that’s because skilled professionals make complex processes look smooth.
