This course is open for Clearing
Interior Design and Environment Architectures is the design and re-design of existing spaces. This course engages with interiors and pushes the boundaries of how we can make and re-make environments whilst considering the experience of the user.
This course is a fusion of architecture and interior design. It deals specifically with public and private commercial spaces within an urban environment. You will explore the impact of materials, technology, structures and form. You will study the design and rehabilitation of buildings, the technical aspects of construction, and how architecture relates to the notions of live, work and relax. You will develop your skills through a mixture of problem-based learning, design studio tutoring, workshops and traditional teaching.

Students will normally be expected to possess five GCSEs (grade C/level 4 or above) or equivalent (including English) and also to hold at least one of the below or equivalent UK or international qualifications.
For this course students should ideally have a background in art, creative media, or design.
We also welcome applicants who are able to demonstrate their abilities through the submission of a relevant portfolio showing their skills, abilities and suitability to the course.
When assessing if an applicant meets our entry requirements we may also consider the combination of a portfolio and academic qualifications, progress made during studies and/or relevant work experience.
Please note: direct entry into year 3 is not available for this course.
You will be continually assessed through preparation of written and project work. Assessment in the final year is through dissertation and portfolio.
You will build skills in communication and representation, construction and dual use environment. Alongside this, you will begin to think about your own design and angles on problems of the built environment. We encourage you to start thinking about your contextual studies research.
You will gain greater understanding of urban history and theory, urban design, and design for commercial and retail environments, as well as rehabilitation. This will allow you to enhance your practice and develop your approach to your design work. We set briefs that encourage you to collaborate with other students and create work as part of a design team.
You will bring your learning together in a final negotiated major project, where you will investigate and make architectural design decisions. Alongside this, you will carry out a negotiated project in the form of a live brief. We ask you to show your contextual studies research and thinking in a long form dissertation. You will leave with a portfolio that shows your skills in areas in entry-level architecture.
Successful completion of this course can lead to postgraduate study in MA Environment Design.
To prepare you for the profession, we put an emphasis on cross-disciplinary practice and live competition briefs. Teaching staff and visiting professionals bring further industry perspectives to the course.
Interior architecture graduates often go on to design the rehabilitation and extension of existing buildings, or the creation of new built environments. You could find yourself working in architectural and urban consultancy, workplace design, housing research, and retail planning or community development.
