Architectural Design Concepts by Qualia

Much of Qualia's work comes from creative consultancies, architects, museums and heritage professionals. The following examples are all from Qualia's recent portfolio of adaptive reuse feasibility studies that explore new uses for historic buildings.


Interior Architecture

Interior architecture is a discipline that often explores new uses for old buildings. 

Creative Interior Architecture

The following study was produced for a commercial developer looking to create a new cellar bar as part of a traditional music club in a popular city centre location. The scheme mixes modern and traditional elements to make a welcoming and relaxing space.


Commercial Interior Design

Contemporary interior design is about getting the most from available spaces.  The discipline includes rethinking and inventing new themes for restaurants, bars, entertainment centres and retail environments. The following concept is for an English coffee bar located in a Dubai shopping mall.    

Informed Interior Design

Good design principles can be used to inform a much-needed sense of change within many public buildings. This concept was produced recently for Carlisle's Tullie House Museum. The new café and restaurant space will give the museum even greater popular appeal among tourists and locals, increasing both income and brand awareness for the museum.
