At the Master Interior Architecture, you will learn to develop a concept for a space based on your own ideas and artistic vision and to realize that concept.What can this Master Interior Architecture offer you?
Perception and expression in the architecture of the interior
What makes a certain place so characteristic? Is it the light, falling at a specific angle through the glass windows? The material and colours of the chairs, tables, curtains, walls, floor? The specific sounds of the room? The touch, the smell of things? The people? Phenomenological aspects determine the atmosphere of an interior.
Interior at our Master Interior Architecture is no niche, nuance or aspect of architecture, but a fundamental attitude towards the surrounding world. The core of this Master is the understanding of a place in all its manifestations before you start to transform it because of changing needs and requirements.... [-]
We educate future interior architects. The programme provides the skills to analyse critically, develop and experiment with the different aspects of spatial environment creation and helps to develop a personal, creative approach. [+]
The contemporary world is characterised by complexity and rapid change, affecting also the profession of interior architects and spatial designers. The Master's programme in Interior Architecture is based on the principle that a set of design skills, in the narrow sense of the term, is not sufficient for interior architects to be successful in their profession. They also need to understand the broader context and be able to adjust their solutions to changing situations.
Our curriculum is divided into two main segments:
The first (so-called ‘hi-tech’) segment deals with the interaction between spaces and people, and the ways high technology and smart materials help improve that interaction. The second (so-called ‘low-tech’) segment is based on the notion that if we have good knowledge of our surrounding, broader contexts (such as climate, nature, economy and culture) and their interrelationship, rich imagination and primitive materials are all we need to create fresh, quality spaces....

The faculty of Architecture and Arts welcomes applications for an innovative international master’s program in interior architecture with a strong focus on adaptive reuse.
It is safe to assume that (interior) architects will have to deal increasingly with the transformation and adaptation of the built environment. Today, the role of architecture is being redefined due to demographic, economic and ecological challenges. Transition and reuse take center stage in the practice and theory of the profession. This academic master’s program is innovative as it considers preservation through the act of adaptive reuse instead of mere conservation and restoration.... [-]

Suggestions and theoretical stimuli become the material on which it's possible to develop the project activity focusing all attention on making concrete what elective scope of a designer.Objectives and teaching methodology
Design is experiencing a time of strong momentum and spreading. The rapid evolution of production methods and lifestyles increasingly requires adaptability and innovation. Anticipating and stimulating change has become one of the main drivers of growth and a competitive factor of contemporary economies. The traditional disciplinary boundaries are overwhelmed by the need for greater interaction, ability to work in groups and technology transfer. Designers are required to know new tools of representation and sharing of information as well as to improve skills of listening to the needs. However, new opportunities open for designers who are asked to draw on the wealth of traditional knowledge without conditions or obligations formal style.... [-]
