For most of history, mankind has lived in harmony with the rhythm of nature. However, we now spend 90% of our time indoors. The result of this disconnect has proven to affect both our physical and mental health. Throughout this 4-hour course, we examine the use of lighting, finishes, materials, and design principles at large to bring the outdoors to the interior and vice versa. We examine how to blur the line between indoor and outdoor spaces to create healthy, safe, comfortable and barrier-free indoor and outdoor living environments.
We live in the age of "smart everything" but what does that mean for design professionals? What is the technology behind it? What will the future bring?
This seminar answers these questions as we delve into the world of home automation, connectivity and responsiveness. This course will give you the tools you need to unlock the potential of a smart home for your clients so they can reap the benefits of a healthier, safer, more comfortable home environment that adapts to their specific needs. Whether it is increased security, comfort, energy savings, or increased independence for an aging or disabled client, or simply an added "wow" factor, smart home features can help you meet your clients’ expectations.
This field has become a major and permanent component of the design process. Don’t miss out, join the Smart Home revolution. The possibilities are endless.
