If in a typical kitchen the surface is only a top layer that covers the kitchen units, in this course, we would like to propose the surface as the core of the kitchen which holds the different elements together in quite an unexpected way. An excellent opportunity to experiment with common areas like kitchens and bathrooms. We always strive towards the alternative, the humoristic and still question the traditional approach to design.
This course will serve as an introduction to quartz surfacing and provide you with basic knowledge about this building product. It will discuss the quartz manufacturing process, key specification decisions and common fabrication issues to consider. This course will also touch on sustainability properties of quartz and the general industry trends.
This course will demonstrate how engineered quartz surfaces can be used in a variety of commercial settings to achieve superior design quality and functionality. The use of engineered quartz in design projects is rising due to its unique properties, sustainable manufacturing process, and wide range of application uses.
First, students will learn about the differences between engineered quartz and other solid surfaces, examples of commercial applications, and common usage challenges. Then, the design benefits of engineered quartz and its role in sustainable design will be discussed. Finally, this course will examine best practices for incorporating engineered quartz into commercial projects.
