Interior architecture is a distinct and separate discipline to architecture. Its speciﬁc focus is the creation of innovative and exciting interior spaces, primarily through the adaptation and spatial manipulation of existing buildings. The course promotes a critical approach to design, and acknowledges the importance of other closely related areas of three-dimensional design in shaping interiors.
As well as consolidating existing skills you will be exposed to the theories that inform the creation of both utility and beauty, and learn the practical craft and technical dexterity required to fully realise design ideas. The study of light, colour, materials and the more tectonic aspects of design will reinforce your understanding of the processes involved in visualising interior space.
The design modules promote creativity, aesthetic sensibility and intellectual enquiry, together with the skills needed to work individually and in groups in developing design proposals. Design projects are taught in small groups in Year 1 (Credit Level 4), and students in Year 2 and Year 3 (Credit Levels 5 and 6) are organised within a studio system which facilitates peer-group learning. The work produced in the design studios forms the basis of your design portfolio through which you will prepare for practice/employment, or in support of your application for postgraduate study. Technical skills, cultural context, design management and economics, and the commercial aspects of interiors necessary for practice are integrated with design projects.
You will be assessed through your design portfolio, design project work and an academic portfolio, along with visual and oral presentations in the form of individual or group seminars, tutorials and presentations of design project work.
London as an international city has a rich and varied range of galleries, museums and cultural venues. Throughout the year you will undertake visits to exhibitions, buildings and events that support and underpin your work within the course. There are opportunities to study abroad within the University’s exchange arrangements.
