What's in the book

The Book

Residential Design Studio details the process of how a professional interior designer and an architect plan and design 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 budget. The book simulates 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 students to do their own thinking and their own design work. Chapters cover everything from single-family detached homes, attached townhouses, and apartment buildings to preliminary design, remodeling, adaptive reuse, and urban design.
