Detailing Interiors

In some ways, architectural projects succeed or fail based upon how well material and system junctions are negotiated. This is just as true for interior projects as it is for entire buildings. How does the wall meet the floor? How does one ceiling system transition to another? How are mechanical registers handled? When these small junctures are deftly detailed the effects ripple out across the entire project, so it pays to know how manufacturers’ systems work so you can successfully bring them together. In this accredited workshop, experts will lead tutorials on a variety of interior detailing conditions.

Barrier-free bathrooms, a recognized design trend, was first developed to accommodate the growing interest in aging-in-place spurred by Baby Boomers. Barrier-free showers are now considered the next level in beautiful, luxurious interiors. This course will take a closer look at the benefits that linear drains can bring to a bathroom, and a few important best practices that will help avoid some of the challenges that can arise during construction to achieve a barrier-free design.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe the connection between barrier-free showers and the design objectives of aging in place or living in place.
  • Explain how barrier-free shower spaces comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) design standards.
  • Identify the basic elements and considerations for incorporating this more accessible barrier-free shower into a new construction or renovation project.
  • Specify the right linear drain system for any given project.

With more workers shuttling between home office and hybrid offices, both spaces need to accommodate flexible layouts that quickly adjust to changing functional needs. Sliding Doors and Movable Walls provide ideal solutions that support wellness and enhance the functionality of interior spaces. This CEU covers the range of Sliding Door and Movable Wall typologies, their suitability, and their specification process. • We offer an AIA approved version of the presentation with a Health Safety and Welfare certification. • This is for 1 hour and corresponds to 1 learning unit or credit. • The presentation is delivered by our CEO and founder Luke Siegel, who speaks from a designers perspective.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand functionality of different door and wall options and how to select the proper system for a spatial requirement
  • Understand material and design options and incorporate fire safety and ADA requirements into your plan
  • Understand functionality of different door and wall options and how to select the proper system for a spatial requirement
  • Maximize design goals while staying on budget

Few building materials have as great an impact on aesthetics, performance, and function as glass does. Yet, not all the different types of glass and their potential for being fabricated into different architectural components are as well-known as they could be. This course provides architects and other design professionals with an overview of the full range of possibilities available from glass manufacturers and fabricators.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify and recognize the characteristics of different types of architectural glass and some of the national safety performance standards that are applicable.
  • Investigate the design potential and innovative opportunities to create building exteriors and interiors that are safe and attractive using glass technology.
  • Assess the fabrication options of architectural glass to contribute to the welfare of building occupants through light and artistic applications.
  • Specify different appearances, textures, and properties for architectural glass for use in new and existing commercial buildings of all types.

Ultra High Performance Concrete is a class of concrete that is exceptionally strong and durable with enhanced aesthetics. With its unique set of properties, a fraction of the materials in conventional concrete mixes is used with thicknesses ranging from 1⁄2” to 3”. In this way, carbon emissions from manufacturing, transportation, and installation are reduced.

UHPC can be used to create decorative and protective façade elements, grand entrance cladding, urban furniture and interior solutions such as stair treads, interior wall panels, countertops, boardroom tables and sinks. We will cover the possibilities of incorporating various embedded items and atypical aggregates without sacrificing flexural and compressive strength.

This presentation will provide basic material properties and illustrate advances in materials and fabrication, which allow for more flexibility with form and finish while remaining monolithic.

Learning Objectives

  • Learn the differences between standard concrete mixes, and UHPC and HPC mixes and its applications.
  • Understand the finishes and forming options available when utilizing high performance concrete on interior and exterior designs.
  • Learn how to leverage the power of high performance concrete and design assist for your projects.
  • Discover how high performance concrete has been utilized to meet design goals while maintaining budgets, as illustrated through case studies.

Biophilic design is the latest frontier in creating indoor environments that help people feel, work, learn, and heal better. The design philosophy seeks to create indoors the patterns of nature that humans are naturally attuned to. This includes natural light and nature views, natural materials like wood and stone, and plants. While vertical walls of living plants seem to satisfy this human need for exposure to nature, the upkeep and maintenance of these assemblies has proven onerous.

That accounts for the growing interest in striking installations of all-natural, preserved plants that require virtually no maintenance but that deliver a power immersive experience of nature. And why not? The plants are all-natural, albeit with their sap replaced with a non-toxic solution, and without the pruning, watering, leaking of systems, and burden of care that their live counterparts require. This course introduces the learner to the biophilic benefits of preserved plant gardens for indoor use and provides high-profile examples where these installations are already benefiting building occupants, building managers, and building owners.

HSW Statement:

This course is about biophilia and the benefit it brings to the well-being of building occupants. Exposure to nature and natural patterns has been proven to reduce stress, improve cognition, and even to extend human life spans. The use of all-natural, preserved plants is discussed as a way to bring these benefits to building occupants. The use of these natural assemblies adds to achievement of LEED certification as well as toward other green building rating systems.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe biophilic design and its effect on occupants of workspaces, healthcare, and hospitality.
  • Explain how plants are preserved and used in indoor gardens.
  • Define the design, fabrication, installation and maintenance of indoor gardens and planters created with all-natural, preserved plants.
  • Discuss the importance of third-party testing and qualified installers for safety and sustainability.
