Basics Interior Architecture: Context and Environment examines the ways in which elements based both inside and outside of the host building can influence and affect the interior space. The book proposes a method of interpretation, evaluation and utilisation of physical factors, such as light and orientation, the contextual issues of the urban form and the subject of sustainability, and their influences on the design of the interior and the remodelling of existing buildings. Detailed studies of contemporary work are used to support theory, making this book an invaluable reference tool to all students of interior architecture and design.
