This resource on architectural drafting introduces the topic specifically for beginning interior designers. This second edition adds a new chapter 14, 'Incorporating the Computer,' which covers integrating software with hand drafting. Content reorganization - like new chapter 3, '2D and 3D' - makes this edition even more intuitive, with specific topics easy to locate.
The interior designer's guide to effective hand drafting The kinesthetic act of completing a manually drafted drawing gives interior designers a greater understanding of the space they're designing, time to reflect on their work, and the skills needed to quickly draw freehand for presentations and design concept developments. Manual Drafting for Interiors is an essential reference for interior designers learning how to manually draft scaled floor plans, elevations, sections, and three-dimensional drawings. Clearly explaining techniques and methods, it begins with an explanation of drafting tools and their various uses, and then presents instructions and illustrations that indicate how to complete increasingly more difficult drafting conventions. Additionally, readers will learn drawing techniques for indicating various materials, symbols for coordinating related drawings, and architectural lettering. Complemented with extensive drawings, inspiring examples, and tips for developing your own style of graphic expression, Manual Drafting for Interiors arms readers with essential skills they'll use throughout their career as a designer.
Interior Detailing provides interior designers and architects with a unique collection of interior details and material information; connecting the realms of design technical detailing that are typically treated separately. The book, which includes 150 easy to understand details, shows how to logically think through the design and development of an assembly so it conforms to the designer's intent and meets practical requirements of good construction.
This book covers all stages of visual presentation as part of the interior design process, from the most basic initial sketches to fully developed computer-generated visualizations. Following a brief introduction four chapters take the reader through the design process, from the basics to conception, presentation and production. This second edition includes more practical advice on techniques, more case studies, step-by-step sequences and updated examples. With a varied and comprehensive range of images, this book is an invaluable, inspirational and practical resource for interior design students.
After its publication in 1992, Designing Interiors became a hugely successful reference tool and designing textbook. In Designing Interiors, Second Edition, updates on trends in sustainability and green design, building codes, universal design, and building information models amplify the already invaluable interior design tricks of trade. Design professors Rosemary and Otie Kilmer provide a fuller design history that incorporates non-Western design and dynamic color illustrations that flesh out technical concepts.
Construction and detailing are vital skills for all students studying interior design and architecture. This book is structured to encourage a diversity of techniques, allowing each student the means to find and put into practice the appropriate solution to fabrication issues and also to express their own personal aesthetic. The relation of existing building shells to the construction and detailing of new elements is also explored. Practical tips are given throughout the book, the roles of consultants, manufacturers, suppliers, and fabricators are explained, and theories of modern, sustainable approaches to interior detailing are discussed. The chapters are packed with professional, annotated drawings and explanatory photographs of techniques, materials, and tools. Through these, the principles of sound construction are explained. This second edition includes revised diagrams to increase clarity, more on sustainability, and more on services and lighting.
