Interior Architecture

At the intersection of architecture, conservation and design, Interior Architecture takes an innovative approach to the reuse and transformation of existing buildings. Advanced design studios focused on adaptive reuse are central to both the undergraduate and graduate programs. And unlike the fields of interior design and decoration, Interior Architecture looks less at the application of surface materials than at understanding the design of buildings from inside out.

In the studio

In the studio, students use digital and manual means to research and recommend design alterations and renovations that give existing buildings new life. Studios focus on a wide range of approaches, from domestic to retail design, theater/production design to issues of preservation and conservation.

Madison Kim | Brown|RISD dual degree student

The concept of adaptive use of taking preexisting buildings and completely transforming their interior is such a wonderful one. What I love about Interior Architecture at RISD is the amount of pride everyone has in what we do in saving buildings. Whereas architecture gives birth to buildings, interior architecture gives them life.

Liliane Wong | department head

“Students in our department are engaged in a rich and expansive discipline focusing on the reuse and transformation of existing structures. Through a wide breadth of design in the built environment, this exploration includes interior interventions, architectural addition and refurbishment, installation, exhibit design, urban transformations and community engagement – using adaptive reuse as the primary tool.”

Interior Architecture alumni go on to find creatively satisfying work around the world. Some launch their own practices designing residential and/or commercial interiors, while others join larger established firms or smaller studios. In addition to practicing as interior architects, alumni also go on to make a mark professionally as sustainability specialists, set designers, educators, home furnishings designers and more.

Alumni at work

Andrea Valentini BIA 95 | product designer

Throughout her career, Andrea Valentini has focused on incorporating unconventional industrial materials into inventive designs for furniture, lighting, handbags, accessories, wearable art and interior applications. Her critically acclaimed Coosh egg chair has been recognized by the Smithsonian s Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum and her work has been included in the museum s popular triennial exhibitions. As she continues to develop innovative new products and design sensual interiors, Andrea remains committed to creating art for everyday living.

Alina Vadera BFA 11 | product designer

When Alina Vadera first graduated, she thought about moving to New York as most designers do. But she quickly reconsidered when she realized that given the economic downturn in the US, her home country was where things were really happening in the world of architecture: Construction is booming in India, she says. So in 2011 Vadera returned to her home city of Delhi, where she now freelances and handles projects for the award-winning firm Studio Lotus. She recently completed a new retail space for Indian fashion designer Gurav Gupta that captures the duality of his Indian and Western collections.

Supporters of Licensing – Interior design student Jill Roberson Awbrey shares her stance on the issue: “As an interior design student who has also practiced interior design prior to working towards a degree, I find some value [in licensing]. There is a big difference between decorating and designing. Any time you are dealing with building codes, there should be a license [requirement].

Hi there, I ve been reading some of your blog entries the past few weeks and I think my team and I can give you the kind of
content you need. Obviously, as a blog host, you know that engaging and captivating content is the only thing that keeps people coming back for more.So here s my
question to you: if you had access to a small but growing and elite group of top-notch writers from North America, Europe, Oceania and Asia who have
contributed (in a small way) to the success of Facebook, Intuit, ISKCON, Greenpeace International, Alamy Images and other major organizations, and could give you a
steady stream of content ranging from articles to infographics to videos, would you be interested in a meeting to discuss possibilities?

You ve done some very nice work on these rooms. I really like how it s a subtle, yet noticeable decor style. It seems like it would look good during any season as well. I have to try this on a room in my house.
