Goal of the education

Interior architecture addresses the close, human scale of space and furniture, used to create meaning and value for people and organisations and to transform and renew the everyday living environment. Dealing with the design of immediate interior and exterior environments, interior architecture requires an understanding of human aspirations and culture, the bodily experience and the senses, and the spatial, material and technological means to meet these needs. A skilled interior architect is capable of integrating diverse elements into functional and experiential design solutions that not only meet, but exceed users’ and clients’ expectations and are socially, environmentally and economically sustainable.

The programme educates interior architects with a distinct design personality. It comprises studies on spatial design and furniture design. Concrete design assignments form a major part of the education. The studies emphasise advanced practical design skills combined with conceptual and strategic design thinking as well as research-driven design. Students are encouraged to expand the frontiers of the discipline by addressing system-level problems and societal challenges across the scale of the built environment. A goal of the programme is to graduate students who are eligible to work as professional interior architects.

Content outcomes

Students who complete the programme will learn to manage design processes, learn about construction regulations and materials, develop skills in 3D composition, and have an understanding of the spatiality of people and products. They will deepen the skills learned in bachelor's studies and broaden their knowledge of spatial design and furniture design. Students will gain knowledge of different design approaches and methods, and be able to practise interior architecture in the broader operational environment of building and construction, product development, business and culture. Examples of the study themes include:

  • The human experience, body and senses as the basis of interior architecture
  • Experimental, critical and artistic design practice that engages the society and initiates change
  • Human-centred, collaborative and conceptual design in interior architecture
  • Strategies for adaptive reuse, sustainability and flexibility in interior architecture

Skill outcomes

The students will learn to interpret and transform the living environment and culture through their insight and professional skills. They will develop artistic and design insight, master their creative design processes, and deepen their expertise in materials and knowledge of the design tradition and cultural discourse.

The programme trains students in personal design expression and develops their ability to master design processes and understand the discipline’s past and present, as a spur to curiosity and experimentation. Students will develop their practical skills in spatial and furniture design further. They will also be trained to develop their technical, aesthetic and research skills to support the design process. They will become competent in exploring technologies and in visualising, creating and demonstrating innovative concepts using the latest technology. They will become professionals versed in multidisciplinary teamwork.

Career opportunities

Career opportunities vary from entrepreneurship to expert tasks in private and public organisations. Graduates work as interior architects in design and architect studios, as independent entrepreneurs, and as in-house designers in industry. They also work as designers, managers, researchers and teachers, and engage in artistic pursuits. The programme also prepares its graduates for doctoral studies.
