Interior Architecture and Interior Design


Interior design is often used as an umbrella term for interior architecture, which embodies the fixed infrastructure of a space. Interior architecture represents the static elements of a property, such as internal finishes, sanitary ware and bespoke joinery.

“If you were to turn a home upside down, everything that would fall is part of interior design. Whatever stays, is interior architecture.”
– Melissa Horne, Director at JIGSAW.



What is Interior Design?


Our interior architecture and interior design services are tailored to the client’s needs to maximise property potential.


Interior design focuses on planning and styling dynamic elements of internal spaces, such as furniture, accessories and artwork, following construction of a property. Additional elements such as window treatments are implemented to enhance aesthetic value.
