As the viewing devices for augmented reality (AR) shift from head-mounted display to smart devices, screen becomes a design factor which affects the viewing experience and associated conceptions. In this paper, we present three models of smart-device-based augmented reality (SDAR) for applications in interior design. The objective is to provide a theoretical framework for the rethinking of augmented reality based on relationships among screen, body, space and information, leading to developments in SDAR-assisted design for interior design profession.
