What to expect in each part of the course

  • PART 1 - Philosophy of Wellbeing, Comfort & Performance

    This 5 lesson part includes an exploration of wellbeing, which elements of a human does it engage with, how we achieve it and its links to interior spaces. It also covers definitions of comfort, performance and how to go about actually targeting and measuring it through the design process.

  • PART 2 - Process & Methodologies to support Wellbeing Implementation

    A 9 lesson part. Design is a process, so to achieve spaces that support wellbeing and productivity we need to follow some relevant processes and adopt a few new tools that help designers on the job. In Part 2 the course covers the tools and processes needed and explains how to adopt them in your day to day projects.

  • PART 3 - Aesthetic Design Issues

    This 11 lesson part of the course looks into all the aesthetic issues, guiding you through each and recommends how to apply them in your own projects. These include colour, texture, spatial volumes, elegance, balance and symmetry, shapes and patterns. You learn to direct the design towards supporting occupant wellbeing.

  • PART 4 - Physical Design Issues

    This 12 lesson part helps designers to know the specific design decisions to look out for when designing for wellbeing. The focus is on issues such as air quality, including thermal comfort, air toxicity issues, air velocity, ventilation, lighting and illumination, planning and interior facilities.

  • PART 5 - Value and Measurement

    The final 7 lesson section looks at what is 'value'. When designing for wellbeing, the focus of the conversation with clients and occupants changes from 'cost' to 'value'. The holy grail of converting the value on an interior space to a financial number is explained and the methodology shared.

  • EXAM & Certificate

    At the end of each Part you will find a short non-graded exam just to test yourself. If you wish to receive a Certificate of Completion the Final Exam needs to be passed. This is graded and has a 75% pass rate requirement. Good Luck!
