Interior Architecture: From Brief to Build
by Jennifer Hudson

Interior Architecture: From Brief to Build, by Jennifer Hudson and published by Laurence King in October 2010 offers both students and professional designers an overview of how today’s major interior architecture projects are designed and built.

Interior Architecture provides an in-depth study of the creative and construction processes behind 30 contemporary interior designs. Covering a broad range of international projects, the book illustrates the working methods and creative concerns of both long-established and emerging international designers. Every stage of the project is included, from the demands of the original brief, through early sketches and design development to investigation of building regulations and collaboration with engineers, contractors, builders and suppliers.

To emphasise the diversity of the work and the methods used by those featured, the book is split up into five major building types: retail, hospitality (hotels, clubs and restaurants), corporate, public and residential. The projects range from small-scale to worldwide, roll-out design strategies. The author has chosen individuals and companies from assorted backgrounds. The majority are trained as architects and some are product designers who have moved on to create interiors. Others are multi-disciplinary companies whose teams are involved in not only the design of the buildings, interiors and products but also in graphics, media and even fine art.

Each project is presented through an explanatory overview, shots of production and construction processes, and details of fixtures, fittings, customised furnishings and decoration.

Jennifer Hudson is an author, editor and researcher in the fields of contemporary design and architecture, and for fifteen years was the general editor of The International Design Yearbook. She is the author of 1000 Designs and Where to Find Them, Interior Architecture Now, Restroom and Process – 50 Product Designs from Concept to Manufacture.
