Interior Environmental Design at DJCAD offers opportunities to explore a wide range of spatial contexts, from temporary pop-up structures to performance spaces, set, retail brand experience, and living and working scenarios alongside more experimental interior contexts.

As a discipline, Interior Environmental Design operates at the exciting intersection of architecture, design, art and new media. It allows spatial investigation into areas such as architecture, furniture and installations to exhibitions and is a dynamic programme that respects the tradition of design history, contemporary culture and new social issues. Within the course you will be encouraged to develop individual creative approaches and develop team responses to interiors, environments, materials and objects. You will develop exciting design processes that combine elements of prototyping, modelling spaces and material awareness with a capacity to visualise and contextualise human and social spatial experiences at various scales and locations.

Our students work in a dynamic open studio environment and frequently work on international competitions and inter-cultural projects. Learning is supported by a teaching team which has considerable expertise in interior architectural practice, interior design research, fine art, service & co-design of spaces, furniture, workshops and computer-aided design.

We are members of the Group for International Design Education (GIDE) where students work on shared themes with design partners in Italy, Germany, Slovenia, Belgium, England, Netherlands and Switzerland and are also founding research members of the IFS Interiors Forum Scotland network and UK wide organisation Interior Educators.
