Course Introduction

Our interior design teaching balances a respect and understanding of the past and the present with an inspirational, poetic and innovative stance towards the future. By doing this you can explore the huge range and diversity of interiors practice that's possible from the very 'historical' to the intentionally 'scenographic' and work in fields ranging from pop'up event & furniture design to complex regeneration and heritage projects. By building an awareness of the timescales and life spans of interior projects you will encounter the full range of roles and relationships that are required when working with clients and other professionals involved in realising projects; from 'art director' through to detailed designer. The school is located in East London near to contemporary internationally important shopping, transport and trade districts such as Excel, London City Airport, Stratford International & the City. You will be visiting these and using them as sites for commercial and retail orientated projects. Similarly you will also be engaged in local historical sites which require delicate and careful restoration as well as innovative thinking about what could happen next to accommodate and delight their new contemporary occupants.
