Interior Architecture


Architecture doesn't only exist around us; it also emerges in our thoughts.

Aaltsje Venema
core tutor


The programme for the Corpo-real pre-master has been developed for professionals and bachelor students.

You will discover how - within the corpo-real theme - you can work on research or design tasks. In twelve weeks, on the basis of this programme you will immerse yourself in the world of spatial design.

You will work together with core tutor Aaltsje Vennema, as well as guest teachers from the (international) professional field both wihin the discipline of the interior architecture and related disciplines.

Your fellow students are all involved in researching designs within the corpo-real theme. During some classes you will have class together with the masterstudents currently studying the master Interior architecture. 

You have classes on Fridays from 9.30 to 16.30 (see exact dates under Practical information). In addition to these hours, you will need approximately 3 to 6 hours for preparing for your next class. 

In the mornings you will have meetings with your core tutor and fellow pre-master students. In the afternoons you will have occassional skills workshops, lectures or workshops with guest tutors, together with your fellow pre-master students as well the students of the master Interior Architecture. 

Aaltsje Venema searches in her work for invisible connections that are made in the human mind. She graduated in 2016 from the master interior architecture at ArtEZ with her research of the Fragmented House where she studied the architecture in our minds. With this research she was invited for several exhibitions, was the winner of the Langhuis talent award and received a BNI prize honorable mention. After graduating at Corpo-real in she has worked at Ex Interiors, currently she is part of Studio INAMATT.

Room for individual development

Your individual development is an important part of the lessons. You yourself are at work and you will get familiar with the world of spatial design. You are going to draw, make models, design, document and go on excursions.


Documenting and reflecting on your work is an important aspect within this programme. The work you make can be used for an admission interview for an Interior Architecture master's degree programme

After you have succesfully finished the pre-master course you will receive a certificate with a description ot the pre-master and personal feedback on your work.
