On Monday, 27th November 2023, the Department of Interior Design Engineering of Cihan University-Erbil, under the supervision of Assistant Lecturer Mays Fahmi, organized a scientific visit to the Life Tower complex for its second-stage students as part of their Interior Design-Residential course.
The purpose of the visit was to introduce students to the types and shapes of residential spaces, along with their various requirements, as they are designing them during the current semester within the aforementioned course.
The students were welcomed by Mr. Ahmed Aram, who is responsible for the residential apartments in the complex. He accompanied the students and introduced them to the area of each apartment (90 – 200 m2). The functional relationships, materials used, and cladding were explained, in addition to discussing the advantages and disadvantages of each apartment. During the visit, the students learned about the public facilities, as there are outdoor seating areas, children’s playgrounds, and all public services.
The visit helped them know the requirements of the project and develop a sense of the space they were designing to prepare the appropriate interior designs. It expanded their understanding of various residential spaces and provided constructive criticism for each residential space they visited.
