Interior Design Short Course (#15) – Tomomi W

Painting and Drawing blog I have started a course in interior design. This is my first time to learn about interior design, but I think it is valuable to learn something practical from an experienced teacher.

Painting and Drawing blog Here is a table about dimensions. The main dimensions used in interior design were 1:10, 1:20, 1:25, and 1:50.

Painting and Drawing blog Here is an explanation of Italian furniture sizes. For example, a bathtub is 70cm on the short side and 160cm-180cm on the long side.

Painting and Drawing blog The furniture is placed on the drawing of the apartment prepared by the teacher. We are a family of four, a couple and two daughters. This is the one I initially created.

Painting and Drawing blog I will brush up the plan by consulting with the teacher. I was taught that the washbasin should be right in front of the door so that you can wash your hands as soon as you open the door.

Painting and Drawing blog The perspective drawing that the doctor drew smoothly in response to my request that the couple’s bedroom should be able to watch a movie on the monitor while sipping a glass of wine.

Painting and Drawing blog Here is the drawing after the improvement. One thing he pointed out to me was that if the children are small, it would be safer to have the couple’s bedroom and the children’s room next to each other, so it would be better to reverse the position of the husband’s work area and the children’s room.

Painting and Drawing blog We drew a cross-section of the living room (upper right). The diagram about the roof structure drawn by the doctor (left, bottom right). He explained many things, such as the underfloor is higher than the ground to prevent rainwater from entering, the slope of the roof is 30 degrees, and the shape behind the object is indicated by a thin solid line.

Painting and Drawing blog We are shown many examples of actual construction by the professor to help us visualize the project.

Painting and Drawing blog In the class, we have an interpreter explain the technical terms in Italian and Japanese. However, it is not so easy to absorb the dense content in a short period of time, so I went back to my apartment and reorganized my notes.
