Space Design Course: Highlighting the Experience of Access to a Product

In the Space Design course, students learn how to imagine places through the sensory, physical and emotional experience that volumes, light and materials provide.

Space is a dimension that we have all integrated. We are born there and we evolve there. Space surrounds us, protects us, and influences our thoughts, our emotions and our individual and collective behaviours. Being a space designer means having the ambition to transform collective spaces by improving the way their occupants live, work, play, exchange, and prosper.

What will you learn?

Space design not just encompasses all aspects of typical interior design courses and public space design; it takes them to a whole different level. Hence, it isn`t a run-of-the-mill interior design course or just that. Students learn to think and design commercial, work, health, and culture spaces and environments that take into account the stakes of services, flows, identities, information, and product staging in the digital era.
