The bigger picture
Interior design is intended to provide an experience to those who enter. If the interior is a space with fluid lines and open spaces then the exterior should assist with this. Larger windows or curved exterior walls will allow for the interior to maximise the space and tie in with the architecture. For interior designers, being able to incorporate external features opens a whole new dimension. To consider the angles, heights, lengths and placement of walls, means a freer design space and grander statements. The intentional inclusion of thought-out bay depths to maximise the practicality and room efficiency, or the inclusion of large casement windows to flood a particular room with light or frame an external view – opens a whole new level of design.
With this method of designing, a question arises – should interior designers be involved earlier in the planning process? Could architects and interior designers help one another to create the perfect spaces? With many combined skills, both still have unique insights into certain areas. Furniture size and the plan for a layout could influence the room size, equally structural supports may dictate the space around them. With new builds continually growing in popularity, it makes sense to design with economy and purpose at the heart.
