The design of interior space encompasses cognition of many factors such as site conditions, functional and behavioural relationships, structural form, symbolic meaning, and sensory responses. These factors influence materiality, and have been influenced by materials, forming a central principle in design. The narrative that we establish in the design of our spaces has to begin with material as a starting point of the story. Materiality within an interior sits within a nexus of the context and the body. The user who dominates the analysis of the program of use is not an abstract entity, but predominately a human being that relates to the concrete conditions of their world - a material world that is in constant flux and demands innovation.
