Description

Our course takes a unique approach to interior and architectural practice, enabling you to create innovative design solutions for interior spaces. You’ll work on a wide range of projects from art installations, built structures and commercial projects, to industry research and smaller-scale design schemes.

Specialising in an area of personal interest within the course framework, you’ll combine practical skills with spatial awareness, practical applications and function to solve architectural problems. Taking a multi-disciplinary approach to interior architecture and design, you’ll consider the influence of art, culture, the humanities, society, economics and history of design.
