The Master’s Degree in Interior Space is a one-year programme designed to gain advanced knowledge on the theory and the practice of interior spaces through the Postgraduate programmes. Both the Postgraduate Diploma in Interior Space: Private Perimeters and the Postgraduate Diploma in Work Spaces are focused on the social, economic, technological and environmental changing conditions that have an effect on domestic and work spaces.
The Master’s Degree in Interior Space is addressed to students who want to specialize in designing architectural interiors, offering them the opportunity to develop the capacity of analyzing, identifying and creating solutions using the critical thought and the spatial understanding for the solution of design problems in the built environment.
The programme prepares future design professionals to improve the spatial and functional quality of interior spaces, ensuring the well-being of its users and being environmentally friendly.
ELISAVA encourages and supports the application of technological innovation as an advanced method to design interior spaces and furniture.
The Postgraduate Diploma in Interior Space, Private Perimeters programme is based on the design of a domestic interior space and it offers the exploration of new design opportunities inside the singular architectural spaces that already exist.
The Postgraduate Diploma in Design of Work Spaces programme insists on the rationalization of space, the physical and psychological notion of comfort, on the management of the energy flows driven by sustainability, functionality and adaptability criteria and on helping users to be in contact with the objectives and the business and brand demands.

New textures, new meanings.
A project which consists of the implementation of an administrative or professional office in a pre-existent venue.
Visits to the interior of buildings and corporations and visits to companies that produce specialized equipment for the work space.
Different lectures given by renowned professionals.
Each thematic module is related to one practical exercise or workshop.
*PROJECT WHICH ORGANISES THE COURSE
The main project of the Postgraduate Diploma in Design of Work Space consists of solving the introduction of a space for administrative use or a professional office, configured in a way in which the office is the common referent. The theme of the office is adopted through a contemporary perspective, as long as it takes into account the corporative interest and also the well-being of the user. Nowadays this user is known as “the knowledge worker”, someone who makes decisions with creativity and with a lot of available technology.

MODULE OF THE INTERIOR DESIGN PROJECT
With an active participation of the students the several workshops integrated within the course promote a conceptual and experimental approach to design through a hands-on learning method.
It usually begins with a presentation to provide the theoretical foundation that aims to deepen the comprehension of a specific subject. During the workshop, students will develop an intense quick draft resolution or a physical object.
Digital Design and Fabrication.
MAIN PROJECT OF THE COURSE
The project is based on the interior design of a private domestic space located in the near surroundings. The aim is to get a maximum degree of approximation to a real case that can be achieved in one academic year.
