 Course Objectives     • Students will study the impact that the environment and built
                       form has upon human activity and comfort—broadening their
                       perception of the human form at work, at play, and at rest.

                       • Students will research and apply the study of the human form
                       functioning within a given space. Emphasis will be placed on
                       functioning within kitchen and bath spaces, with a focus on
                       appropriate materials for usage, maintenance and safety.

                       • Students will analyze how human beings operate within
                       selected areas as to: Floor Space, Height, Reach, Bend, Stretch,
                       Lift and Circulate.

                       • Students will demonstrate awareness of proper lighting,
                       electrical requirements and plumbing accessibility.
                                 • Students will research and apply the study of design
                                 accommodations for the physically disabled.

         Course Overview         Through this course you will learn to apply the study of
                                 ergonomics and other fundamental principles to the design of
                                 residential spaces, with special emphasis on kitchens and
                                 baths. You will have the opportunity to research, design, draft
                                 and present layouts, both in scaled plans and elevations, and
                                 to specify finishes, fixtures and appliances, required to satisfy
                                 project criteria for function, adjacencies and life safety
                                 (including access for the physical disabled.) You will be
                                 encouraged to develop creative solutions by applying
                                 aesthetic principles and elements of design to your completed
                                 design solution, in order to fulfill client needs and expectations.
                                 Through lecture, student research, progressive studio
                                 assignments, and field trips, you will learn the theories,
                                 standards, practices and materials needed to develop project
                                 designs that are appropriate, functional, and aesthetic.

      Class Attendance Policy         Your final grade is based upon your participation in
                                      classroom activities such as lectures, discussions, quizzes, and
                                      instructor supervised studio time-in addition to any project(s)
                                      required for this course. If you are absent from class, these
                                      activities cannot be ―made up‖. Missing an excessive
                                      amount of class time will definitely impact your final grade.

                                      This is not a correspondence course, nor should it be thought
                                      of as simply ―doing a project‖. This course requires that your
                                      instructor see how you are working upon your project
                                      throughout its progress.

                                      For these reasons, the school attendance policy will be
                                      strictly enforces. The student manual states that if a student
                                      misses more then twelve hours of class time then they will
                                      receive and “F” in the class.

                                      There are no ―excused‖ absences. If you accumulate more
                                      than twelve hours of missed time, you may submit a written
                                      appeal to your instructor. It must be accompanied with
                                      documentation (doctor’s notes, police reports, etc.) for
                                      every absence. Continuation in the course with a passing
                                      grade is at the instructor’s discretion.

                                      Please be aware that the absences allowed are intended for
                                      emergencies and are to be reserved for that purpose.

                                      Professional Behavior: The classroom is a professional
                                      environment and unprofessional behavior will not be
                                      tolerated. Unacceptable behavior includes offensive

                                 language, fighting, shouting, cheating, etc. Students
                                 engaged in such behavior will be instructed to leave the
                                 classroom and may be required to visit the counseling
                                 department or dean of students before reentering the class.

       Academic Honesty          As members of the academic community, students must
                                 recognize and uphold standards of intellectual and
                                 academic integrity. Under all circumstances, students are
                                 expected to be honest in their dealings with faculty,
                                 administrative staff, and fellow students. In speaking with any
                                 member of the college community, students must give an
                                 accurate representation if the facts at hand. Students are
                                 required to refrain from any and all forms of dishonorable
                                 and unethical conduct related to their academic work. In
                                 class assignments, students must submit work that fairly and
                                 accurately reflects their level of accomplishment. Submitting
                                 any work that is not the product of the student’s own efforts is
                                 considered dishonest. Engaging in academic dishonest can
                                 have serious consequences for the students.

                                 Academic Dishonesty Includes:
                                 Cheating
                                 Plagiarism
                                 Submission of the same work in two or more classes, without
                                 prior approval of faculty members of the classes involved.
                                 Submission of any work not actually produced by the
                                 student.
                                 Submitting another’s work without full and clear
                                 acknowledgment of actual author or creator of the work.
