Overview

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.

It is inter-disciplinary in its outlook and acknowledges the importance of other closely related areas, including Interior Design, exhibition design, set and lighting design, retail and product design, interior conservation as well as multidisciplinary and traditional design practice.

The  Interior Architecture (Honours) degree offered at the University of Westminster is designed to equip you with the practical skills and theoretical knowledge required to pursue a career in interior architecture and design related fields and/or go on to further awards in tertiary education, most typically a Masters qualification.
