Interior Design Foundation Course

Foundation Course - 1 año

This course is aimed at those who want to enter the world of the design of interiors and other spaces of varying types and scales, by means of projects and workshops carried out in collaboration with designers and companies in the sector.

    Interior Design Foundation Course

    This course is a full introduction to Interior Design. It is a foundation aimed at those who wish to delve into the design of spaces and user experience: domestic, retail, public and private spaces, well-being, interactive design, ephemeral spaces, etc. During the year, we will work on a range of scales and spatial typologies, and all artistic, visual, conceptual, technical and projectual facets will be covered, through projects and participative workshops, which encompass all the essential subjects for the professional exercise of interior design.


    The course uses a methodology based on professional activities, so that, around a projectual core, a number of key subjects are developed in this space design training. This structure makes it possible to learn by designing, and to train our students in design processes and cutting-edge digital and communication tools applied to interior design.


    Additionally, each project is led by important working professionals, who guide our students through the design process and the methodology of a real interior design project.

    Título Superior en Diseño de Interiores


    Throughout the course projects and workshops will be carried out relating to space, the user and the experience, in which knowledge acquired in other subjects comes together. The projects are exercises for greater conceptual, technical and detail development, unlike the workshops, which are more intensive, creative and experimental.


    Communication is the most important tool for transmitting an idea and explaining a project. It is for this reason that it is so important to teach the tools and certain techniques needed to represent and communicate the design of interiors: drawing, surveying and graphic design among others.
