An Introduction to Housing Design and Interior Architecture

A growth area is the commercial development of housing for a variety of markets including student accommodation, the elderly and to improve accessibility and sustainability.

You explore the key concepts and language of interior architecture from brief to realisation and methods of visualising and communicating your creative ideas.

You learn through a combination of live sessions and pre-recorded materials. Tutor support is available during the specified weekly times.
