In this programme, students gain, develop and demonstrate the knowledge, understanding and skills in Interior Architecture and Design. We focus on the creative improvement of existing and new buildings & spaces. Students will learn about how the objects and spaces that make up our everyday landscapes provide pleasure, give meaning to and can enhance the quality of people's lives. Students will develop an understanding of how people and activities interact with the material, environmental, sensual, emotional, functional and cultural qualities of a specific space and situation and how interior architects can design better places.
Year One (Level 4)
Intensive introduction to the knowledge, skills and techniques of Interior Architecture and Design (IAD). Students learn how to observe, analyse, represent and communicate the qualities of existing spaces, besides exploring how designers improve such spaces. The emphasis is on understanding and developing proficiency in a wide range of design, representational as well as communication techniques. In addition, students are introduced to the basics of materiality, construction and detailing.
Year Two (Level 5)
Overall aim of building upon the knowledge and skills developed in Level 4, to broaden as well as deepen their competency in Interior Architecture and Design. Students are encouraged to engage with some key contemporary issues, apart from learning ways to develop their design exploration and experimentation. This enables them to be more self-directed in their design processes, in order to produce coherent and complex design resolutions.
Year Three (Level 6)
Level 6 focuses on the integration of all skills and knowledge developed in previous years, as students bring together the different aspects of design creatively and coherently in response to specific design problems in order to illustrate an engagement with some aspect of contemporary Interior Architecture and Design practices. The year starts with great emphasis on strategies of working within existing fabrics and then, students decide on a major area of specialisation for the final project, through the development of a design research proposal.
Internship (Working Experience)
Practical training allows students to explore the real industry and understand market trend. This course consists of supervised work experience in an approved training situation. It is designed to provide practical experience in the interiors industry. Students will be assigned to an on-site interior design project, and work as apprentices under the supervision of the project manager to go through the actual activities and processes that are utilized in a professional atmosphere, inclusive of site meeting, site supervision and coordination work, authorities’ approval processes and more.
