You'll develop practical experience which will boost your career prospect and lead to a highly-regarded additional qualification – an Advanced Diploma in Professional Practice: Interior Architecture & Design.
Interior architecture is a well-established, multi-faceted alternative to interior design. Though the two disciplines are intrinsically linked, interior architecture degrees typically focus on the adaptation, remodelling and sustainable reuse of specific existing buildings, where structure and architectural consideration will empower you to reconfigure sites to dramatic effect.
You will learn to design incredible interiors, that respond to their context and the local community. You will transform a variety of public and private spaces where you will have the opportunity to design future interiors, that respond to the character and history of your host building and create new hybrid alternatives. You will explore strategies to unlock new potential and promote innovative ways inhabitants will reconnect with the ‘interior’.
You will engage in a variety of professional approaches that embrace research, capture design development and create imaginative proposals. Spatial planning will be linked with both construction and structural awareness, including the use of sustainable materials and new technologies. Professional drawing standards, together with innovative methods of design communication and visualisation will help articulate design intent.
This Interior Architecture degree aims to prepare students for a successful and exciting career, one that can help create an individual identity as an independent design professional.
