Interior Architecture: From Brief To Build!

June 28, 2011

We have ready many, many books on our industry and even considered writing one or two but then we finally purchased Interior Architecture: From Brief To Build by Jennifer Hudson and realised that a great design bible has finally been written.

The following is a brief description of the contents from publishers Laurence King

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

Interior Architecture offers both students and professional designers, an inspiring and informative overview of how today’s major interior architectural projects are designed and built.

Interior Architecture: From Brief To Build covers Retail, Hotels, Clubs and Restaurants, Corporate, Public and Residential projects. A bit like us really.

Some of our favourite projects include Jin’s Global Standard, Nagareyama, Japan by designer Ryuji Nakamura   and the H&M Store in Barcelona by designer Estudio Mariscal. We had planned to show some exerpts from the book but decided that you would benefit much more from buying the book and supporting the author.

Price guide is 200 AED or £28. The book is available locally in Kinokuniya, Borders and Magrudy’s or on Amazon. If you have the slightest interest in Interior Arcitecture then this is definitely a book you should consider picking up, plus we all agree that after we finish studying this book from end to end it will make for a lovely coffee table book.

Our Rating for this book is:
