Overview

This Interior Design course focuses on a dynamic future-fit approach to spatial and experiential design.

You are encouraged to push boundaries and take risks in your creative approach, through the ability to confidently offer solutions to challenging interior design briefs.

Design projects will be set in the context of existing or new build and will cover a diverse range of topics that include;

- Retail
- Leisure (bars, restaurants and nightclubs)
- Exhibition/event design
- Workplace
- Theatre and TV set
- Museums
- Public Spaces

This course will allow you to explore complex architectural intervention down to the finer detail. These exciting design solutions will come about through the study of brand, function, materials, tactility, space, form and human interaction, all set in the context of industrial practice and communicated through 2D and 3D methods, including technical drawings, 3d visualisation, sketching and model-making.

Our unique collaborative relationships with national and international clients and practices allow you to work on real life project briefs with companies such as Topshop, Gensler, John Lewis, Live Theatre, and Dalziel and Pow.

You will demonstrate entrepreneurial capabilities through the skills, aesthetics, functions, materials and construction that you apply to your final year project.
