Interior Architecture vs Interior Design: What are the differences?

Sharing is caring :)
gray-standard-color-book-near-green-eraser-159045

When choosing a major for your future, you’ll probably look at what you love and enjoy doing the most. And apparently, you like giving a makeover to an indoor space. But then, you got into a dilemma–there are similar options for your preference, but you don’t know the difference! It’s down between Interior architecture and Interior design

Worry not! Here, we provide everything you need to know about both Interior Design and Interior Architecture.

What is Interior Architecture?

red-and-brown-floral-stair-carpet-161758

Apart from the misconception of the similarity between interior design and interior architecture, they both have the main difference. An interior architecture course is a hybrid field of study, bringing interior design and architecture together in a single discipline. It takes a good knowledge of building regulations, and an understanding of the structure of buildings, in order to make projects safe, habitable, and functional. Different from interior design, interior architecture needs to consider pretty much everything that has to do with both the building&construction and also the interior space.

What is Interior Design?

According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, Interior design is the art or practice of planning, creating, and supervising the design and execution of architectural interiors and their furnishings. The interior design courses comprise of a more technical perspective rather than practical since an interior designer doesn’t have an architectural certification. 

The role of an interior designer doesn’t stop there. Since their job is to help create functional interior space, they need to understand how the inhabitants will use each room and also consider light, sound and other design aspects. Interior design also requires some of the tech-savviness, as far as the use of 2D and 3D software applications is concerned. Computer-aided design (CAD) is key in contemporary interior design, as well as building information modeling (BIM).
