As an interior architect you will create spaces and experiences by responding to how humans interact with and inhabit spaces. The interior design course at IIAD prepares you for these challenges of designing built environments, enabling you to give existing spaces a new life through your unique design process.

Interior Architecture & Design

At the intersection of architecture, interior and experience design, the Interior design course inculcates a multi-disciplinary approach to transforming existing spaces.

Redefine-Redesign

Inside-Out

Thinker & Maker

Critically Creative

Our Interior Architecture Design course is distinguished from courses in interior design and decoration, by our rigorous focus on adaptive reuse, refurbishment and retrofitting as well as detailing technical services. We prepare you to address the emerging trends in interior design by understanding living and working in the 21st century, by re-imagining existing spaces and adapting them to changing needs.

While architect looks at space and structures from the outside, an interior architect takes an inside-out perspective. You learn to respond to how humans inhabit and interact with interior environments through sensitive design. Our interior design course focuses on detailing and design of micro elements within the macro environment.

Our philosophy of thinking-through-making encourages students to develop their design ideas through hands-on-working with a variety of media and materials. Our interior design course sets a fine balance between traditional skills, contemporary practices and future technology.

Rigorous analysis of ideas and beliefs by self-critique paves the way for excellence. You learn to balance your intuitive thinking and logical reasoning, leading to better design solutions. Interior design students get set on a creative adventure, empowering them to become self-reflective practitioners.
