Acquire the know-how and tools students will need to take care of projects for hotels, and restaurants , working in collaboration with real clients.

The Master in Interior Design  for Hotels and Gastronomic Spaces provides the know-how and tools students will need to take care of projects for hotels, and restaurants , working in collaboration with real clients (Hotel W Barcelona, Hotel Majestic, Hotel Murmuri, Hotel Praktik Rambla, etc.) to gain first-hand experience and help them to succeed later in the working world.

The demand for interior designers specialising in hospitality has risen in the last few years. This is especially true in cities with significant tourist and cultural attractions, like Barcelona. With this in mind, the course programme includes outings to discover the city and its most relevant hospitality establishments, as well as visiting design studios and attending conferences, workshops and monographic talks.

The course involves completing three different projects to cover the specialisations of Hotels, Gastronomic Venues and Retail. 

Information to decide

Objectives

  • Work on all the points related to interior design projects for the Hospitality sector: from the conceptualisation of the idea and the creation of the concept to the drawing up of the proposal, including the design of all the technological solutions (selection of materials, sustainability criteria, lighting technology, etc.).
  • Explore creative solutions and make the design innovative from a critical, contemporary perspective. Offer research into the formal, functional and technical aspects that will allow the students to take a qualitative leap in their careers.
  • Improve the students’ ability to communicate graphically by working on presenting projects based on drawings, renderings and models.
  • Train the students to give oral presentations to a professional audience or a customer.
  • Train the students to interact with different types of professionals from this sector.
  • Help the students to acquire their own creative project methodology so that they can have a career in this area of design or in any other.

The Master in Interior Design emphasises the application of theoretical knowledge. All the different subjects are, therefore, practised while developing design projects. The work process is therefore necessarily active and applied to the realities of the profession but, at the same time, the students are given the freedom to develop ideas, experiment and frame hypotheses.

Observation, analysis and experimentation form an essential part of the learning process. This is why both the theoretical classes and the projects are supported by visits and guided tours led by the Master’s instructors. They also visit the studios of local designers, who open their doors to the students to share their professional experience and their vision of design.

  • Professionals with a minimum of two years’ experience, with a degree in a discipline related to design, preferably architecture, interior design or industrial design, who wish to learn the tools needed to effectively tackle an interior design project for the hospitality sector, in the context of an increasingly competitive and ever-changing market.
  • Professionals from other fields that are not purely design. In this case, however, the students must be aware that they must acquire, on their own, an adequate knowledge of spatial design, how to create the concepts applicable to the project and be able to handle contemporary digital graphics design software. 
  • In all cases, the students must submit a CV and a portfolio containing projects from both their academic and professional fields.

Professional Opportunities

  • The students will end their studies being able to propose, develop and implement new, innovative spaces in any area of design, even though the Master centres on interior design for hotels and gastronomic spaces. 
  • This type of project, which has a strongly commercial nature, is closely related to brand image and branding, so that the students will acquire the knowledge that will allow them to focus their profession on this sector.
  • In any case, the Master prepares the students both to add value to interdisciplinary teams in architecture and interior design studios and to work independently in their own studios.
