Subject

Interior design and architecture

**Why study this course?**

Interior architecture is a distinct, rigorous practice that requires a specialist way of thinking about how we occupy complex spaces and how the elements of space are brought together at a human scale both to accommodate and to delight. This position facilitates you to become fluent in the creative act of design while supporting you to become well versed with your professional practice.

In the most recent Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey, 100% of all 2017 graduates from this course were in work or further study within six months.

**More about this course**

We are fascinated by the way people inhabit existing and new spaces, both at the scale of the home and at the scale of the city. Interior architecture is a distinct, rigorous practice that requires a specialist way of thinking about how we occupy complex spaces and how the elements of space are brought together at a human scale both to accommodate and to delight.

It's the collaborative nature of professional practice that guides this course. It's the only interiors course where students work alongside architecture students. This link is underpinned by how and what you study and by the design practitioners who work with you to help you to develop your design skills and thinking.

You'll develop specialist skills in the areas of observational and spatial drawing, computer drawing, model making and technological and material investigations. Alongside making design proposals we ask you to comprehensively research, analyse and articulate the culture and context in which your design thinking is being applied.

As you progress through this course, you'll develop your own individual enquiry, creative approach, critical thinking and deepen your understanding of design processes. We encourage you to combine intellectual and creative ambition with detailed resolution of your work and to test how to communicate your ideas effectively to your peers and in the wider world.

Our teaching programme is supplemented by study trips, practice visits, design workshops and weekly lectures by designers and architects. Where possible, we link with The Projects Office, to other areas of the University and with our established international partners.

The course is part of a suite of interiors BA awards, allied to both architecture and design schools.

**What our students say**

“It was really helpful to understand how things work in reality, outside our university bubble. I worked with the interiors team over about five different projects doing CAD drawings and Photoshop work.” Mariachiara Dal Pozzo on TP Bennet, her second year work placement

"Tutors are very enthusiastic and they try to help as much as possible."

"The design studio is excellent."

"London Met is a very rich experience of studies due to the variety of students' background, ages and experiences."

"A very large university with many great facilities and very helpful staff."

Assessment methods

You'll be assessed through portfolio presentations, illustrated documents, a dissertation, essays, seminar papers and tests.
