SPATIAL DESIGN

INTRODUCTION

Spatial Design focuses on the relationship between architecture, design, and man with the interior as a point of departure.

An architect or a designer from the Spatial Design works with spatial organisation and all its human implications. The more rapidly organisations, patterns of living and local traditions are disrupted, the more awareness is needed.

WHAT IS SPATIAL DESIGN?

Spatial design is a relatively new conceptual design discipline that crosses the boundaries of traditional design specialisms such as architecture, landscape architecture, landscape design, interior design and service design as well as certain areas of public art

It focuses upon the flow of people between multiple areas of interior and exterior environments and delivers value and understanding in spaces across both the private and public realm. The emphasis of the discipline is upon working with people and space, particularly looking at the notion of place, also place identity and genius loci. As a discipline, it uses the language of architecture, interior design, and landscape architecture to communicate design intentions.

Spatial Design

The Spatial design uses research methods often found in disciplines such as product and service design, identified by IDEO, as well as social and historical methods that help with the identification and determination of place.

As a growth area of design, the number of spatial design practitioners works within existing disciplines or as independent consultants.

EDUCATION

Design new experiences that set moods, communicate ideas, address social issues and facilitate cultural expression through the innovative use of space, lighting, technology, and form.

This combines interior/exterior spatial and structural knowledge with a new approach to designing for people and places that engage immersive technologies, user experience, and influence human behaviour.

You’ll work both independently and collaboratively on projects that range in scale from the most intimate private space to the largest public structure and have the opportunity to connect with designers and industry practitioners.

WHAT DOES A SPATIAL DESIGNER DO?

  • Develop initial ideas and acquire key information about potential projects, discuss requirements in detail with clients (the brief) and set project schedules
  • Understand clients’ needs and the needs of the people using the building to develop design concepts and establish final briefs
  • Consider materials and costs according to budgets and negotiate project fees
  • Conduct feasibility studies for projects
  • Research and gather information and photographs relating to the project
  • Produce ‘sample’ or ‘mood’ boards to present to clients
  • Source products, e.g. Fittings, furniture, lighting, finishes, decoration and dressing, and provide samples for clients
  • Prepare detailed working drawings, designs, plans, models and schemes, often using computer-aided design (CAD) software
  • Survey buildings
  • Work in a team with other designers
  • Supervise work at the design stage and on-site
  • Work closely with quantity surveyors to establish costs and work schedules on larger projects, with architects and other design professionals to determine the best use of space, and with manufacturers and contractors
  • Identify new business and sell services to potential clients
  • Keep up to date with new developments in the design industry

CAREER FOR SPATIAL DESIGNERS

A career in interior and spatial design combines architectural knowledge, project management, and creative design skills

Spatial designers are involved in the design or renovation of internal spaces, including structural alterations, furnishings, fixtures and fittings, lighting and colour schemes.

You may work in a range of commercial, leisure or domestic settings. The job combines the efficient and functional use of space with an understanding of aesthetics. Some designers, particularly in the domestic market, are concerned solely with the appearance, rather than the structure, of the interior.
