The Fundamentals of Interior Architecture (second edition) offers an introduction to the key elements involved in the creation of aesthetically appealing and practically appropriate interior architecture.

The book contains five sections, which together encapsulate the principle ideas, skills and knowledge that are employed in effective interior architecture and design. Areas of study include space and form, site and function, materials and texture, light and mood, and presentation and representation.

Emphasis is placed on spatial solutions that support the needs of the client and which recognise the qualities of the building and its situation.

The theory is contextualised using practitioner biographies and work from leading designers.

The new material in this highly illustrated second edition includes interviews with leading practitioners.
In addition, at the end of each chapter there are new projects to encourage readers to explore further the creative possibilities of working as an interior architect.
