The study of Interior Architecture is divided into the areas of people, furniture and space.
As the user of our designs, people are the focus of Interior Architecture. Teaching includes topics from fields of anthropology, ergonomics, psychology and color perception, but also presentation, marketing, architecture, design, art and cultural history.
At the interface between people and space, furniture plays a central role in Interior Architecture: it should be haptically tangible, functional, well-designed, ergonomic and stable. Possibilities of construction and manufacturing as well as the constant change in furniture design are the content of the courses. In the course of their studies, all students design at least one piece of furniture and realise it as a prototype.
The design of space ranges from the construction of a built shell to atmosphere and mood. The theory study covers important teaching content on building construction, technical finishing, lighting design, material justice and sustainability in design. In the project study, this knowledge is applied in spatial designs and the results are communicated in the form of presentations.
The Bachelor's Degree programme enables students to study Interior Architecture in an up-to-date and practical manner, oriented towards the technical feasibility of creative solutions. Individual elective options allow students to set thematic emphases and deepen their own interests.
The following topics are in the foreground:
- Interior, furniture and scenography
- Perception, design and presentation
- Teamwork and interdisciplinarity
- Communication and language skills
- International contacts
We shape the things we build, thereafter they shape us.
It is the core task of Interior Architecture to create spaces and shape the built environment according to human needs, and both needs and spaces can vary greatly. Whether they apply their acquired skills directly in professional practice or deepen them in a Master's Degree Programme, our graduates are prepared for a wide range of activities based on a diverse range of study projects that reflect the spectrum of different tasks.
