Interior & Retail space Design

The Interior and Retail space design is crafted for meeting the increasing demand for industry ready professionals who specialize in urban design. This four year programme aims to develop the ability to conceptualize, plan, design, and detail functional and aesthetical interior spaces ranging from public & commercial spaces to small residential spaces. It aligns the mindset of the student to creatively interpret cultural contexts both local and global perspective, while integrating technical aspects such as structural systems, materials and construction, electrical, mechanicals etc.

The course focuses more on aesthetics and styles of interior. Thematic based approach, decor and styling, surface materials, finishes, furniture, and crafts are the key elements in this course. Students will explore design trends and movements and adapt them to user needs, with an emphasis on image and expression. Sourcing of materials and furnishings as well as leveraging local and regional crafts and artisanal work are also an important focus. Students also branch out into set design for film and television, exhibition design, events, as well as styling for photo shoots, window displays, and retail experiences.
