Interior Design

Create experiential and new spatial environments that challenge convention and transcend trends.

Interior design is defined as the act of creating environments within and around existing spaces and structures. As a profession, it covers the design and planning of an immense range of places including, but not limited to domestic, leisure, retail, office, healthcare, hospitality, and institutional spaces. It is also closely interwoven with various design disciplines like architecture and industrial design.

Interior design is not a course on interior decoration, nor is it the pursuit of architecture under the guise of interior design. You will focus on the creation of experiential environments from the perspective of users, and the discovery of new typologies of space. You will look to the conceptual to challenge convention, habits, and trends, and seek to explore the controversial, unexpected, and emergent, with the onus on critical design thinking and intense involvement in the design process.

The curriculum is based on a number of key design principles. Design processes and conceptual thinking methodologies are explored in a practice-based studio environment and supported with core discipline skills that involve a critical understanding of design history and contemporary theory; technical knowledge on building materials and technology; traditional drafting and modelling techniques, as well as the latest in computer-aided drawing and visualisation. Through the course of study, you are exposed to the demands of the profession with a continuous engagement in local and international design competitions, live project and exhibitions.

The objective is to create an ecosystem of significant designers and dynamic professionals who display a restless curiosity of mind, making informed design decisions tempered by a sense of social responsibility, where interior design is not a matter of simply aligning oneself with fashionable trends but rather a discipline of reason, necessity, analysis, meaning and the creation of new spatial experience.

Graduation Project (60 CU)
This module brings together all the skills and professional knowledge you have acquired so far, allowing you to focus on an area of personal and particular interest. Depending on your preferences, you will be able to work in a team and collaborate with BA(Hons) degree students from other design programmes.

In this module, you will work on a project that requires a higher level of social sensitivity in the design of environments and interior spaces. You will negotiate a design proposal, detailed research, analysis and critical understanding of user surveys and site contexts, where you will be tasked to not only integrate and balance functional and aesthetic aspects, but also the social interpretations and representations of design.

This module encourages you to reconsider the utopian role of the designer when faced with practical concerns in design construction, and to continue challenging conventional design thought while employing critical thinking to spatial programmes, design processes and interior environments.

Your study will be self-directed and conducted in relation to theoretical frameworks explored in your Dissertation. Through writing your own brief, you will learn to identify and articulate clearly your research trajectories and anticipated design challenges. Backed by substantiated research, you are to experiment and develop these trajectories as part of a comprehensive design proposal. Informed by industry standard practice, you are to produce innovative, conceptual and even discursive design solutions that are presented as progressive yet realistic outcomes.

Design processes and conceptual thinking methodologies as the primary focus are explored in a practice-based studio environment. This is where you explore and apply technical knowledge and skills with a critical understanding of design history and contemporary theory gained from core modules. Each studio session is facilitated by staff/assigned supervisor and invited industry practitioners.

You will learn to manage the design process, as well as define project development stages and benchmarks. You will conduct interim evaluations, tests and experiments that influence and inform the final design outcomes. You will be expected to exhibit part or all of your design process and outcomes on one or several occasions. Exhibitions provide you with a platform to test your ideas, interact with a range of audiences and engage in critical dialogue.

To support the design practice at this level, you are expected to produce a Creative Process Journal (CPJ) in which you will document written, visual and aural materials in support of your practical work. You will critically assess these along with your research findings. Your CPJ needs to document verbally and visually the development of your ideas and concepts, and the application thereof. You are strongly encouraged to include and critically analyse your failed attempts. Your choices and progress in relation to the design development will need to be articulated professionally and convincingly. Your CPJ needs to be designed and produced to meet design industry standards.

You are required to submit all mandatory assignments and show professional studentship. Commitment and full class attendance are key aspects of achieving satisfactory studentship for each level of study, and they will be taken into account for the assessment of this module.
