GENERAL COURSE OBJECTIVES
The objectives of the course are to:
- Work on all the points related to interior design projects for the Hospitality sector: from the conceptualisation of the idea and the creation of the concept to the drawing up of the proposal, including the design of all the technological solutions (selection of materials, sustainability criteria, lighting technology, etc.).
- Explore creative solutions and make the design innovative from a critical, contemporary perspective. Offer research into the formal, functional and technical aspects that will allow the students to take a qualitative leap in their careers.
- Improve the students’ ability to communicate graphically by working on presenting projects based on drawings, renderings and models.
- Train the students to give oral presentations to a professional audience or a customer.
- Train the students to interact with different types of professionals from this sector.
- Help the students to acquire their own creative project methodology so that they can have a career in this area of design or in any other.
SPECIFIC COURSE METHODOLOGY
The Master in Interior Design for Hotels and Gastronomic Spaces emphasises the application of theoretical knowledge. All the different subjects are, therefore, practised while developing design projects. This method leads to a high degree of cohesion between theory and practice, and contributes to reaching viable conclusions from the viewpoint of construction and economics. The work process is therefore necessarily active and applied to the realities of the profession but, at the same time, the students are given the freedom to develop ideas, experiment and frame hypotheses.
Observation, analysis and experimentation form an essential part of the learning process. This is why both the theoretical classes and the projects are supported by visits and guided tours led by the Master’s instructors. In this way, the students have the opportunity to learn about the architectural setting and the interior design of Barcelona from professionals in the city. They also visit the studios of local designers, who open their doors to the students to share their professional experience and their vision of design.
- Professionals with a minimum of two years’ experience, with a degree in a discipline related to design, preferably architecture, interior design or industrial design, who wish to learn the tools needed to effectively tackle an interior design project for the hospitality sector, in the context of an increasingly competitive and ever-changing market.
- Professionals from other fields that are not purely design. In this case, however, the students must be aware that they must acquire, on their own, an adequate knowledge of spatial design, how to create the concepts applicable to the project and be able to handle contemporary digital graphics design software. The possibility of these students succeeding will depend on their empirical training process and their self-teaching abilities.
- In all cases, the students must submit a CV and a portfolio containing projects from both their academic and professional fields.
The Master develops the skills needed by designers. It offers the students a complete education, allowing them to tackle any kind of project related with the world of design. They will end their studies being able to propose, develop and implement new, innovative spaces in any area of design, even though the Master centres on interior design for hotels and gastronomic spaces.
This type of project, which has a strongly commercial nature, is closely related to brand image and branding, so that the students will acquire the knowledge that will allow them to focus their profession on this sector.
In any case, the Master prepares the students both to add value to interdisciplinary teams in architecture and interior design studios and to work independently in their own studios.
COLLABORATION WITH COMPANIES
So that the students can work on their Final Project for the Master (FPM) in a real-life situation in the labour market, we count on the cooperation of companies selected by the IED Master.
In previous years, the students worked with the Sercotel Amister Art Hotel Barcelona and Hotel W Barcelona.
Gli architetti Oliver Franz Schmidt, Natali Canas del Pozo e Lucas Echeveste Lacy formano El Equipo Creativo, studio specializzato nel design di spazi per la gastronomia, oltre che a spazi di marca e commerciali.
Il loro percorso professionale inizia nel 2010, con il design dell'emblematico ristorante Tickets e il cocktail bar 41º di Ferran e Albert Adrià. Da allora hanno realizzato diversi progetti, sempre legati al mondo della gastronomia, lavori che sono stati riconosciuti con un gran numero di premi internazionali di design, come ad esempio i prestigiosi The Great Indoors Awards, FX International Award, o i Best of the Year Award. I loro progetti sono stati pubblicati su siti web e su riviste in più di venti paesi.
