BA (Hons) Interior Design at Manchester School of Art is concerned with the occupation of space, how it is used and importantly, how it is experienced. We promote the understanding and subsequent remodelling of existing spaces, in order to create meaningful interventions. The occupant or ‘protagonist’ is central to the design proposals.

Interior Design as a subject area offers a breadth of career options through its range and mixture of disciplines and varied approaches, and our students are aware of the diversity of the subject from the early stages of the course. They are taught to use contextual research to inform project work and define own areas of interest.

Two final year projects are showcased here:

ID4: Final Major Project – Ancoats The FMP project is an opportunity for students to showcase who they are as a designer by generating a project that is theoretically and academically underpinned by relevant philosophies and ideas, whilst meeting the professional expectations of the discipline. This year the projects are in response to 2 buildings in the historic area of Ancoats in Manchester.

Unit X: The Pop-Up – various locations around the city Unit X showcases student proposals for a self-initiated and professionally presented detailed design project and builds upon the ambitions from the FMP. Unit X is where students realise their ambitions appropriate to their intended audience and future working practice.
