Notes on the Interior Design Profession
Interior Design is a multi-faceted profession in which creative
and technical solutions are applied within a structure to achieve
a built interior environment. These are functional, enhance the
occupants' quality of life and culture and are aesthetically
attractive. Designs are created in response to and coordinated
with the building shell, and acknowledge the physical location
and social context of the project.
