The course explores the space between objects and architecture with a hands on approach to crafting the interior and influencing the perception and experience of people as they use space.
The range of projects creates graduates who are flexible and adaptable, can work at any scale, have strong beliefs and have social responsibility at their core.
The results from our course are creative, confident and employable graduates able to work across the breadth of the interior design world.

Creative practice & artistic projects
I run an interior design consultancy called Multi Story Thinking, which specialises in retail and commercial interior and private residential projects. With a focus on return on investment, brand and the customer experience our work is characterised by pragmatic and creative solutions which transform the daily experience of their clients. Our recent projects include office interiors for ACCA in London and Glasgow, retail environments for The Sanctuary Spa in London and The Real Food Store in Exeter. Our residential work transforms old fashioned and out dated properties to create spaces that really reflect the way their clients want to live with the Boundary Estate refurbishment recently shortlisted in the New London Architecture 'Don't Move Improve' exhibition.
