Using the Client Brief provided for Mr. & Mrs. Moore:
List 5 initial inspirational ideas that can be used to develop a concept/scheme linked to the client brief and Multi-purpose room.
Explain how each of these ideas can be developed into a concept in a creative way.
When developing each idea, think about all of the elements of the space. For example materials, wall and floor finishes, furniture, accessories, fabrics, etc.
1 These will be your first thoughts and will form the basis of design ideas. Consider how the initial idea could be developed to form the clients interior design scheme. Refer to course notes for guidance on inspirational ideas and how to develop a concept using a client brief. Use inspirational images in your report to help you develop your ideas. A design concept is an idea that informs the look of the whole space. This is not a final scheme, and will develop as your design progresses.
With the design brief in mind, develop ONE inspirational idea from Assignment A.
Produce an A3 concept board to show your chosen inspirational idea and how this will be developed into a design scheme.
Include an explanation of how you have developed this idea thinking about the elements of the space indicating why it is the most appropriate choice.
NB Your chosen idea will be developed into a final scheme as you progress through the course.
Do NOT develop all five ideas from Assignment A. Choose only one that is most suitable to develop. A concept board shows ideas around a theme, not a finished scheme. Look at the How 2 Guide for ideas on presentation boards including concept boards. The concept board may include images if existing interiors, fabric swatches, colour palettes, wall coverings, images of furniture and accessories, etc.
