This design-led, studio based course is a member of Interior Educators, the National Learned Society for the subject, and provides you with the practical skills and specialist knowledge to work as an interior architectural specialist from an acclaimed academic team.
Within live and directed design projects, you will develop creative, intelligent and meaningful design proposals for existing buildings thorough investigation of the existing site as a precursor to your designed intervention. You will learn to control the relationship between the existing context and your proposed interior adaptation, supported by studies in design, communication, history and theory, construction technology, environment and management.
You will take part in site visits within live projects and a European study trip to help contextualise and expand your learning. At the end of year 2 you can choose the option of an additional study abroad year, or complete the course as originally intended; all of which are designed to enrich your experience as a subject specialist and as a global citizen.
You will develop a creative portfolio of directed and self-directed design project work which will allow you to fully explore your interests within interior architecture and building adaptation, while fully expressing your ability as a designer and a future professional.
