Develop your creative skills and learn to think like a designer


This course enables students to develop a strong design identity through creative investigation of the interior. The focus of studies is on both the adaptation of existing buildings by manipulating the architectural fabric and occupying new spaces through designing atmospheric environments.

You will be provided with the opportunity to work within the commercial, social and historic contexts of Portsmouth on both imagined and ‘live’ projects with real clients, in connection with our Project Office. The course is recognised for this unique approach to professional practice.

You will learn the skills and develop values that enable you to contribute to the creation of our built environment with imagination, sensitivity, confidence and professionalism.


On this course you can:

  • Develop concepts and designs in a lively studio environment, conversing, making and drawing alongside others
  • Critically debate history, theory, contemporary interior architecture and design
  • Develop technical skills and an understanding of the rigours and ethics of professional practice
  • Take a placement year in practice
  • Work on real-life projects in our Project Office
  • Please view the School of Architecture blog
