Frequently Asked Questions

People often confuse interior design with interior architecture, and vice versa. While both disciplines share a common aim of creating appealing spaces, interior design focuses on the aesthetics of those spaces, whereas interior architecture focuses on their functionality. An interior architect will consider the building materials used and the structure of a property, as well as any artistic features.
