Why take this course?

This course allows you to develop and grow your own creative practice whilst positioning yourself within a theoretical context.

You will engage in the exploration of space conceptually and pragmatically, encouraging your own response to the functionality and visual design of existing sites. You’ll also inspect the consideration of materiality and the relationship of the interior idea to architecture.

What will I experience?

On this course you can:

Have the opportunity to 'earn and learn' by working on real life contracts through our Projects Office. This experience will enable you to develop your professional portfolio.
Develop a personal area of study, get involved with some regional regeneration projects and test and develop your ideas and your interior research.

What opportunities might it lead to?

Interior design can be transient or durable, small or large, can engage at a detailed product design level or at an urban level, but at whichever level, the demand for skilled professionals is increasing, as is the requirement for innovative sustainable designs.

This course provides a firm grounding for employment in a range of design offices, as well as other property-related jobs.

Here are some routes our graduates have pursued:

Interior design practice
Exhibition design
Retail consultant
Working for local and public authorities
Teaching in HE

Module Details

This course uses the experience and skills of teaching staff with a proven track record in interior design studies, practice and research. You will also benefit from a multi-disciplinary learning environment where more than 100 postgraduate students in architecture, interior design, urban design, sustainable design and historic building conservation can meet and work.

Here are the units you will study:

Practice: This unit provides you with the opportunity to evaluate your own design practice and the design discipline from which you come and to contextualise this within interior design practice. Practice-based methods will be used to explore the interior through inter-disciplinary means and you will build on and develop your own creative practice through real-world situations, through doing. You will also be involved in discussions around the social, political, economic and professional contexts that drive the construction of interior space. You will be expected to analyse and critically evaluate the interior context, develop briefs, strategies and a proposal for a given area.

Theory: This unit aims to interrogate the history of interior design and its relationship to practice. Interior design is a relatively youthful profession, whose history is situated in the gaps between architectural history and design history. In this unit you will explore the intellectual idea of the interior through debate and discussion, catalysed through a series of workshops and critical readings, developing an understanding of the interior condition. We bring in specialists from other disciplines, actively encouraging debate. You will also be expected to explore and build on your own understanding of interior space by keeping a reflective journal.

Research Methods and Research Proposal: In this unit you will develop research skills, which will aid you throughout your course and particularly in producing your thesis. You will be asked to establish a critical position within an Outline Research Proposal. You will develop techniques, which will allow you to engage proactively within your area of study. You will be encouraged to explore methods of investigation that are responsive to, as well as inquisitive of, the conditions presented and which therefore speculate around possible critical scenarios. Implicit within these explorations is the need to investigate diverse means of representation and depiction through a variety of possible media and discourse.

Integration: This unit allows you to work in a multi-disciplinary context through groups within your own subject area and across the areas of interior design, urban design, sustainable architecture and historic building conservation, as well as explore the interrelationships of all disciplines. You will need to work collectively on given projects or problems related to staff-run studios, which explore a range of given themes. These themes will be introduced at the start of the course and connect to research areas within the School.

Work-Based Learning: This unit gives you the opportunity to replace a 30-credit core unit with a work-based version of that unit. Not all units can be replaced and you will need to discuss the appropriateness of a unit with tutors. Work-based learning requires you to engage in critical and reflective learning in the workplace. This will be developed through a learning contract, negotiated by you, your employer and School. The work undertaken in practice will be appraised through critical reflective writing that engages with the practice of the particular subject discipline and this will form the assessment artefacts.

Thesis: Your thesis is a substantial research-based project that enables you to carry out an in-depth investigation into a subject area of personal interest, which is related to or developed from a theme studied during the course. The proposed research theme should have a clearly defined focus to allow for in depth theoretical, contextual and visual research.

Programme Assessment

This course is lecture and studio-based, culminating in a written or design-led thesis project. It will involve case study investigations, group work, discussion and planning of interior environments, as well as independent study to develop design or research-based responses to interior problems.

Design assessment is through studio review and taught courses are assessed by various forms of evidence-based interior design decisions and proposals. You will also carry out an in-depth research project into an area of your choice.

Student Destinations

On completing this course, you will be adept in spatial practice and able to work within your specialist discipline in design practices, architectural firms and cross-disciplinary environments. The creative skills, professional competencies and expansive learning environment that we provide has also led graduates into a range of careers in marketing, advertising, journalism, virtual design and modelling through to people-centred careers such as project management.

Alternatively, you can choose to pursue freelance opportunities, continue your studies to PhD level or even set up your own interior design practice.

The course runs over a total of 30 weeks and offers a combination of taught study, self-directed negotiated study, personal research and written assignments. There are also two major practical projects undertaken during the year and each is the subject of a book.

The course is studio based and delivered in three units of study:

Unit 1 - Commodity and Design

This is a design programme that explores a small-scale domestic interior. This project focuses on how the client / user can be given a new opportunity to perform within a space and the various methods students have to envisage and communicate this opportunity.

Unit 2 - Negotiated Design Programme

In this unit students are expected to initiate a design project. They will choose a location, make an analysis of an interior and establish a design brief for a new programme of habitation. Students are asked to find a context in the public realm rather than the domestic one, and are expected to reflect upon and discuss how habitation is improved by their contribution.

Unit 3 - Professional Context

This unit is concerned with critical reflection upon professional practice and creative processes. Students will learn about professional communication within the practice of interior design, and specifically the writing requirements of an interior designer when they are reflecting upon and communicating their design proposals. This will prepare students for professional practice and support the critical position of their design proposals.

Work experience and opportunities

During the year students are involved in live projects. One of these, the making of a Christmas-themed installation for a highly regarded hotel in Westminster, has become an annual event.

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 in a specific angle through the glass windows? The material and colors 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.

The core
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.

What will you learn?
You will learn to develop a concept for a space based on your own ideas and artistic vision and realize that concept. Important part is how to present your conclusions as an essential component of your architectural design. At each assignment you will be asked to draw connections between your own work and that of others and between your work and the audience. Also you will make an active contribution in collaborative projects. In the two years you study in Maastricht you will get the chance to deepen your design skills, personal interpretation of the professional situation and artistic talent. You will obtain subject matter knowledge, insights and skills based on your own applied research.

Language
English/Dutch. The lecturers also speak German.

Study Programme

The first year
Your own atelier
In the first year you will work in your own atelier, where you fulfill hypothetical assignments and where you evaluate your design process step-by-step with your lecturers. In these assignments you will explore materiality, light, time, scale and composition.

Assigments
We start an assignment with excursions to different places, where you test these with your senses and explore it with our time’s state of mind, from within. You research the place’s anatomy, induce empathy and construct understanding. You formulate an intention of how to rebalance the choreography meaningfully and you exemplify the intended meaning as a built structure of explicit materiality. In these assignments the theoretical research and analysis play a key role.

Your graduation project
Final master assessment
In the second year you will focus on your thesis and final work piece. Your graduation project is the final master assessment. With this assessment you will proof that you are able to practice the profession. You will position yourself as an interior architect and present you to the outside world so that you can build the foundation for a future career. It also offers the possibility of a critical contribution to the debate on topical issues, and is valuable for the further development of the field.

Free to choose
The subject of your final project is free to choose but still fairly close in the broad sense of the interior. It is a hypothesis in a built-up area context. The selection and motivation of your graduation project is part of the graduation plan that is submitted. You will have to conclude the place and the primary idea of the intention.

Thesis and anatomical model
Your graduation project consists of two connected layers: the thesis and the anatomical model. The thesis should form the foundation of your project, based of language and theoretical research in historical, philosophical, cultural and socio-political sense. The anatomical model is the concrete implementation of your intention and includes all spatial elements.

The Master's programme focuses on research and innovation in different sectors, with an emphasis on practical activities of design, to enable students to develop their creativity, refining tools and knowledge through a targeted and structured approach: the fundamentals of Interior design of cars, both technically and psychologically, emerging technologies, identifying layout and models of use of interior space, traditional materials and the latest generation, new trimmings, technologies and integrated platforms with a particular emphasis on interface design.

From a cultural perspective, the Master in Car Interior Design and User Experience covers subjects such as the history and trends of Car Interior Design and the study of perception. Students improve their skills and techniques in the visualization and communication of ideas, forms and concepts. The laboratory of communication occurs with the practice in the advanced levels of 2D and 3D Photoshop and other industry-specific programs. The environment of the cockpit is examined in all its functionality. The user and his needs are always at the center of the project proposal. This means improving and facilitating the driving of the vehicle, the passenger compartment comfort in all aspects (functional, aesthetic, sound, touch) and its security.

Much importance is given to human-machine interface. The important flow of visual information, sound messages or control actions through devices and controls located on the dashboard in front of the driver requires a careful and intelligent planning that facilitates the interaction between the driver and the car as a function of maximum driving safety.

development of the passenger that, in its evolution, has changed the real idea of the car, considered primarily for its aesthetics design in the past. comfort and aesthetics have become increasingly important as the range of devices and interfaces of the latest generation, together, offer the driver a unique mobility experience often conveyed through the philosophy of a brand.

The curriculum includes a study of the marketing strategy: user profile, market analysis. The student is measured with the reality in a series of professional workshops held with the support of companies in the industry.

The MA Interior Design course has been developed as a coherent part of the School of Art Design and Performance’s Masters Programmes and shares the same values and philosophies that unite them

The focus of the MA Interior Design course is rooted in 'creative practice'. As a postgraduate student, you will be able to form a uniquely individual, tailor made programme of study. You may choose to work either within an established area of contemporary interior design practice or explore the potential for design diversity.

PROFESSIONAL ACCREDITATION

Staff involved in teaching the programme are Chartered members of associated professional bodies such as the RIBA. They will endeavour to provide assistance in opening up opportunities to network with regional bodies appropriate to your study programme.

LEARNING ENVIRONMENT AND ASSESSMENT

Practical work is carried out within our extensive and very well equipped studios and workshops. A programme of guest lecturers, visits to exhibitions and UK cities, workshops, manufacturers, and opportunities to study abroad further broaden, support and enhance the environment within which you will study.

A special feature of the MA programme is the blend of practice and theory which underpins the student projects. As a student on an MA course in the School of Art Design and Performance you will belong to a large and varied postgraduate design community. You will study some core modules alongside students from other design disciplines and through this participation in a common programme; you will experience a strong sense of community, sharing of knowledge and access to a wide range of staff skills and resources.

Practical and theoretical elements are assessed. Assessment strategies involve portfolio assessment, presentations and reflective diary summaries.

Successful completion of a combination of research and practice modules leads to the MA award. Intermediate Diploma or Certificate exit awards are available should studies be incomplete.

FURTHER INFORMATION

The MA Interior Design course has been developed as a coherent part of the School of Art Design and Performance’s master's programmes and shares the same values and philosophies that unite them. At the outset of the programme all students are required to participate in an induction and diagnostic phase. During this three week programme student’s develop a proposed area of study and negotiate methods and topics for their research.

Throughout the master's programme students work simultaneously on both their research and practice modules. Research often helps students to re-orientate themselves in industry and to develop very personal design philosophies that inform their practice thinking. Upon conclusion of their practice studies students are expected to have achieved outcomes made possible through unique connections explored through their research.

In the second semester you may choose to undertake field studies and take a more outward looking focus and more rigorous validation of their ideas through professional networking or even external placement. You will have the opportunity to study abroad for a period of time and a regular feature of the course takes students to New York and Berlin.

Interior Design also encourages students to engage in internship positions as part of their studies that offer real design practice experience. These experiences can fuel the development of rich and varied CV’s ready to enhance your career.

By the end of the course all students should have completed a cohesive body of creative work to a professional standard and be able to clearly articulate a sound intellectual rationale and broad critical viewpoint.

OPPORTUNITIES

In addition to the employment opportunities we seek out for students we are keen to travel to explore and research realistic design contexts. These trips range from those close to home to more International locations. As a result we visit sculpture parks, local cities in the North West of the UK, London, Berlin and New York. We receive fantastic feedback from students about these experiences.

The MA will further your career opportunities within commercial design practice. Research has shown that graduates who have undertaken some form of work experience are significantly more likely to gain employment in relevant sectors than those who have had no work experience. The programme has strong a strong track record of internship success with students following leads provided by staff to take part time positions in practice during their studies.

The MA is, however, not seen as wholly vocational as it also recognises the value of personal development, satisfaction and enlightenment.
