NTU Architecture Subject Group


Through thorough research of my archive object and site, the piano and the Mackie Mayor, I designed a piano archive space that reflects my object's concept through contrasting fluid /organic and linear forms. The object laboratory is a unique space as it acts as a sound laboratory instead, a space where acoustic forms are designed and a piano set up on stage is the focal point. Moreover, by assessing the clients needs, the space is a private space with a lobby area for the public to visit on appointment basis.

BA (Hons) Interior Architecture and Design

Interior Architecture and Design at NTU has an incredibly long and rich history; with Interior Decoration taught at the first ever UK Art school, in the Waverley building during the 1950s.

Over the last 70 years, our programme has grown and adapted to meet the requirements of industry and social change, respond to trends, and deliver a degree which encourages students to look, think, critically appraise, and understand local and world issues amongst the principles of design.

We are a validated degree programme in which our students can join the Chartered Society of Designers, and we are members of the Interior Educators network. Our dedicated design studio in the Grade II* listed Arkwright building enables a studio culture which reflects professional practice, in a dynamic environment that challenges everyone to work collaboratively, share experiences and experiment with ideas.
