The basic design course is carried out in most institutions providing design education regardless of the area. The goal of this training process is to introduce students to the design elements and principles and to carry out intellectual activities such as observation, perception, impression, experience, research, memory, evaluation, the emergence of creativity and the end with the product. The student is expected to gain competencies such as gaining a different perspective and freedom of expression by communicating with the field and using different materials with new meanings. During the lesson, the students get acquainted with a workplace (studio space) that they are not familiar with. It is aimed that students create original works with different materials and expression techniques, sometimes by doing individual and sometimes group works. It is the first time that the student encounters with the concept of design, observing the social–physical environment from a different perspective, discovering and developing the ability to produce forms. In this study, the experiences of two-dimensional and three-dimensional outcome products shared by the Biruni University Interior Architecture and Environmental Design Department’s first-year students in the 'Basic Design I' course, which transfer the basic design elements and principles they learned during the semester to the final applications, are presented.
