Overview of Space and Interior Design

Spaces have a lot of impact on the physical, psychological, cognitive and behavioural aspects of the end users. The spatial qualities define and determine how we feel, think and act in a certain setting. Hence it is very important to understand and appreciate the role of interior design in shaping our home, offices, institutions and public buildings. An ideal space has the capacity to accommodate everything and still is able to provide the desired comfort. This is possible after careful consideration of basic elements and principles of space and interior designing. However, the traditional approach to space and interior design is often limited to make a space aesthetically pleasing. At The Design Village , the Space and Interior Design programme considers all these factors continuously making TDV amongst the best interior design colleges in Delhi.

Overview of Master in Space and Interior Designing

The Space and Interior Design programme at TDV surpasses traditional approach to interior design that is restricted to only decoration or aesthetic embellishments to encompass a more effective approach that relies on the transformative power of design interventions in making a difference in the built environment. The programme takes the students through a sensitizing journey of making them aware of the context within which they operate as interior designers, and then equips them with the necessary tools to realize their vision. The Master in Space and Interior Designing programme at TDV encompasses the two seemingly specialist fields of Space and Interior Design into one by highlighting their inherent relationship and enabling students to look at this realm holistically. It questions the stereotypical definitions of Space and interior design studies.

The programme follows an integrated approach where students look at the domain in the larger context of India and the world. This helps to bring together the concepts and values of sustainability, environmental studies and living traditions. The curriculum helps in sensitizing students towards consumption and confronts them with the responsibility that has to be taken for this cause. The versatile curriculum of the programme allows it to be amongst the best interior designing courses in Delhi and TDV to be one of the best institute for interior design in Delhi and Noida.

How We Teach

The pedagogy at The Design Village is driven by intrinsic motivation, personal responsibility of the students and lifetime learning attitude, all of which is held together by support of facilitators. The journey of a student is based on the learning manifesto of each student and the itinerary chalked out to achieve it and hence the journey undertaken by every design villager at TDV is unique, and bespoke and it does not have to cease at the end of four years.

Although the journey is individual, the villager is not alone. There is a support system of relevant people, to assist the villagers at every junction.

Each villager charters their own personal learning path. This path is custom made for them with a great mix and match of experiences, projects and tools through three streams of interrelated activities:

  • Taskbox: It includes design problems of various scales and durations derived from real-life situations.
  • Basket: It is a cluster of courses characterized by a common theme, discipline or learning objective.
  • Villaging: It consists of the activities for personal development, with the goal to build the TDV community and oneself.

The pedagogy makes TDV a unique and the best institute for interior design in Noida and Delhi.

Curriculum Details Overview

The curriculum for Master’s degree in Space and Interior Design is designed in such a way that over a course of four years, students will become aware of themselves and their values. They will understand what they consider important in the world and how to let this drive their design education. This gives students the freedom to choose what kind of space and interior designer they want to become as they evolve.

Briefs for taskbox are offered in a variety of contexts ranging from fashion, accessories, lifestyle to a range of cross disciplinary as well as manifestation independent ones. In basket courses students will learn about the appreciation of the form, space and ordering principles that define and determine the character and quality of the built environment. Also, a cohesive understanding of the building elements, the nature of light, relationship between spaces, surfaces, volumes and their role in space making. The villaging modules are intentionally the same for all the programmes to ensure development of the self and the village community.
