Interior Design in architecture is the process of designing both interior and exterior space and then of manipulating that through space surface treatments. In the past, interior design was part of the building process, however today it is more complicated. Interior design has evolved and can be quite intricate. Distinguished at the turn of the 20th century as a challenge to the large retail monopolies, it now represents individual tastes and habits.

At Thorpe, Whyman & Briggs, we have a strong tradition in interior design and we like to work with you personally to understand how the space will be utilised by real people, establishing that complex need, taste and habit.
We listen and then design in accordance with your wishes and specifications, as there is often more than one solution. The advantage, of course, is that we can combine the interior design solution in with the architecture, meaning they are not treated as separate entities in the finished work.
We provide all the technical back up needed to ensure the success of the interiors elements, including mechanical and electrical services, to ensure that people can work, live and learn in a safe and inoffensive environment that is also aesthetically pleasing.
