Bachelor of Interior Architecture (Honours)

UNSW Sydney

Interior Architecture is a design discipline that focuses specifically on interior environments and all aspects of their structural, spatial, social and material assembly. Interior architecture and interior design share a common ground, but they differ in the scale of the intervention in the interior. Interior architecture works at the scale of architecture, including the manipulation of structural elements such as walls, floors and staircases while interior design generally engages at the scale of individual rooms. During this degree, you will develop creative solutions that respond to current societal and functional aesthetic challenges in the built environment spaces that may be permanent or temporary, from the scale of rooms to the scale of cities.
