Interest in interior architecture has grown rapidly in recent years. New materials, technologies and techniques are giving interior architects exciting new ways to enclose and use space using, for example, architectural glass for floors and ceilings and new environmentally friendly technologies for heating and lighting.

Interior architecture combines the study and practice of interior design with architecture. It explores how the interiors of buildings such as office blocks, houses, hospitals and galleries are inhabited, used and experienced. Furthermore, it also explores how interiors of buildings can be changed to meet different needs and to express different functions, for example from a station multi-storey car park to a modern office block. All of this work contributes to the development of your subject knowledge and understanding.
