BA (Hons) Interior Architecture

About the course

This studio-based BA(Hons) Interior Architecture programme is concerned with the reuse, adaptation and rehabilitation of buildings; be they old, new, forgotten, redundant or in disrepair. It is concerned with the existing as palimpsest and the manner by which interiors are conceived and integrated into the existing host site. We place an emphasis on the recognition of built fabric and site narratives as equal precursors to the development of an adaption to prolong or alter existing space. The programme uses the design project as the central vehicle for learning within each year.  Design projects are planned to stimulate and provoke imaginative responses to the re-use and adaption of existing architectural space and range from directed, to live projects with national and regional partnerships, to self-directed brief setting.  Students work within dedicated RIBA Award winning design studios, with space provided for each student to quickly establish a culture of belonging, authentic learning and professionalism. Students have access to state of the art rapid prototyping, modelling and IT labs, participate in a European Study tours in year 2 and have opportunity for subject specific site visits throughout the programme. Our students can reach their potential with such important facilities, with NSS overall satisfaction as 100% in 2019.
