Hospitality Design

Hospitality Design DS 410 is a senior level study taken by interior design students at Southeast Missouri State University, Department of Human Environmental study.

The development of the studio was focused around the dialectical relationship between Hotel Types and space as understood through design programming, proposals, and determination of the target group. This Hotel project was explored through a few stages. The first was to focused on the spatial organization of spaces relating the drawing of space to its re-conceptualization, the second was to understand the boundaries of hotel structure and create a   “conceptualization of Interior Space.”  

I designed a high rise structure with no space planning and asked students to start applying the design principle to the shell, so that the students have to work around columns, walls, and windows. It was a challenge for student to work around the structure without being involved in designing the structure. The third stage was to construct usable design solutions based on programming information for multicultural populations. The last stage’s focus was to specify appropriate furniture, fixtures, equipment (FF&E), and finishes. After completion the students present professional quality projects to design and hospitality professionals.

Design Studio

Design Studio 412 is the last design practice in the Bachelor of Interior Design at Southeast Missouri State University, Department of Human and Environmental Studies. I acted as an assistant to Dr. Brune, the coordinator and the Dean of the Interior Design Program. I worked closely with her as we took action towards design development.

The program for the studio was to design a building for a healthcare center. The proposed building consists of 5000ft full of activities for a specific target group. This project’s aim is to design with passive climatic design strategy (good ventilation and maximization of daylight), as an aspect of sustainable building design in the reduction of nonrenewable energy use. The design seeks to integrate the issues of spatial quality for the users, accessibility, and environmental protection.

Students need to identify and study different diseases such as Alzheimer, Dementia, Diabetes, Arthritis, and Parkinson’s.
This course is divided into different sections. The first focused on primary Elements, Ordering Principles and spatial organization. Students need to understand the fundamentals of design principles and create a transformation form. After this stage students will start to apply spatial organization into an abstraction drawing and create a work of art. Soon after this stage student will use their abstraction to start space planning and design a health care center specific to their target group. 

Healthcare center was proposed in Cape Girardeau Missouri. The location of the site gives the opportunity for students to receive the benefit of the park and lake as well as the existing parking and pathway used by the public. Students need to determine the design for a specific group of people (target group).

Demonstrate the ability to conduct and apply an analytical approach of context in design.

Include precedent study and a thorough site analysis which are to identify, analyze, and interpret data to develop an interior for a small public building with a particular building function. Apply the spatial organization to develop the space planning.

To understand a reading of the coherence amongst plan, section, elevation and interior perspective, and to develop an elaborated spatial composition with primary elements. 

To apply architectural drawing presentation with integrated computer technology (Revit) in design process and products. Able to design a simple public building which conforms with general public use requirements such as disability, multi-gender, and multi-generation.

Professional Practice ll

Professional Practice in Interior design ll for Fall 2014 and Fall 2015. This course is the study of the techniques and processes employed by the interior designer in the establishment of professional relationships and practices. As a teacher in the Adobe/Autodesk software, I believe my responsibilities include delivering clear, expository lectures, which present the suitable material electively without compromising on the content. I also aim to provide comprehensive lecture presentations, which are used as supplements to the main visualization design. I seek to set a high profile and advance intellectual standards for my student, and adhere to them myself.

I personally believe it is a great opportunity to teach all the design based software that can help student to produce better work. As an instructor of Photoshop, indesign, and illustrator, my goal is to train the person sitting in front of the screen to use a correct and suitable software with enough knowledge of exactly how she or he has to put all the work together in a very stylish way.


  • Evaluate methods used by an interior designer for developing fees, product pricing, and design contracts.
  • Explain the procedures involved in the project management process.
  • Utilize typical contract documents and specifications used in design projects.
  • Develop an understanding of the contract administration, delivery, and project closeout procedures.
  • Construct a professional resume, cover letter, and portfolio and      develop skills in the professional interview process.
