Interior Architecture / Interior Design

Interior architects plan and create rooms for individual, public and commercial environments. In their interdisciplinary activities, they have to demonstrate competence in the fields of design, technology and business – to develop designs that are in line with people’s needs.

to be comfortable. And practical. They shouldn’t only be useful, they should have real character as well.

Independent designing and planning. The »thread« throughout the competence field of Interior Architecture/ Interior Design is the development of usable rooms. During the course of the sixsemester, practically oriented Bachelor program, students learn all about design and the technical skills required for independent drafting, planning and creating rooms and building interiors. In addition to the business aspects, the instructors in Interior Architecture/ Interior Design also focus on teaching the students about the social and ecological dimensions of their activities. Needless to say, building interiors make a major contribution to what buildings

Furniture, exhibitions, tradeshows. Above and beyond the theory of classical Interior Architecture/Interior Design, students explore special fields of activity in intensively dealing with building interiors and rooms. This includes designing furniture, temporary rooms and exhibitions as well as developing design concepts, tradeshow projects and room scenarios. During their studies, students experience many overlaps with and intersections to the other fields of competence, in particular to Lighting Design, Color Design and Product Design.

Planning offices, tradeshow builders, furniture companies. Soon after successfully completing a Bachelor program, graduates in interior architecture can go directly into any number of related professions. Or they can apply to take the Master program. Graduates in the competence field of Interior Architecture/Interior Design will find jobs in the following fields: offices for interior architecture and architecture, tradeshow construction companies, furniture companies, as well as other offices for furniture and product design, right on up to special companies for interior finishing, stage design and event management.

Technology and the trades. The study of Interior Architecture/Interior Design is based on manual graphic and plastic skills: two- and three-dimensional design theory along with product, architecture and nude drawing. In addition to these manual skills, computer-supported reproduction technologies are also part of the study program. These basic skills make it possible for the students to work on projects in the field of room design, renovations, furniture, tradeshows, exhibitions, etc. These hands-on projects and the corresponding courses in the Interior Architecture/Interior Design study program deal with such important topics as building materials science, finishing materials, technical and space-building expansion, as well as building construction, structural support theory, building physics, building
technology and building surveying. Interior architects must also have indepth knowledge in the fields of architectural theory, art and cultural history as well as in law, construction codes and office management. In addition to the different reproduction techniques, model building is an important medium to develop and present concepts, drafts and prototypes, e.g. in furniture construction. The generously equipped studios give students ample opportunity to hone their technical skills in working with wood, plastics and other materials.
