    Yes, you can be both an interior designer and architect. There is a lot of overlap in qualifications required to work as an interior designer or architect. The key difference being that architects need more academic training at a university level since they are the ones design buildings. Interior designers mostly work with homes and their design will depend on budget, type of space etc. However there is some overlap for example architects often need help doing installations or designing furniture for buildings. They may also sometimes act as project managers for construction companies working on a specific building so they would organize architectural plans and budgets from general contractors - who specify what needs to be done in detail (such as electrical wiring).

    Yes, interior design is a profession in its own right. Interior designers are people who typically work directly with clients to plan and oversee the design, decoration, furnishing, space layout and operation of residential spaces. The term "interiors" refers to an integral style in architecture or home furnishings that emphasizes comfort while minimizing costly materials such as rare woods or expensive stone. A designer will meet with clients (usually homeowners) to determine their goals for their space- living room design might have a different goal set than home office design which might be different from bedroom decoration.

    Yes, you absolutely can be an interior designer and architect. Many people make a living doing this. In the United States, it is also possible to get a degree in these two subjects simultaneously (this is not offered anywhere else). Schools like IUPUI offer degrees in Interior Design, Architecture and Historic Preservation with side-by-track options that allow students to study one subject exclusively.
    One of the advantages of getting both design and architecture degrees is that no project will ever look "finished". No matter how well you think you've designed a space or house, someone will always have an idea on how something should look differently or be placed differently to make it perfect.

    Yes, it is possible to be both an interior designer and an architect. An interior designer typically focuses on the aesthetic, ergonomic planning of a space, including color schemes, furniture placement and type of furnishings. Architects are primarily concerned with constructing buildings and determining site location using traditional design principles
    which focus on the physical qualities of the building - structure materials, cost analysis for construction feasibility and detailed drawings & specifications for manufacture or construction. Interior designers may work in architectural firms as illustrators or graphic artists while being responsible for preparing desired motifs and designing various aspects such as rendering plans during development phase. Interior designers often work closely with architects during design phases when creating schematic drawings to meet personal preference or company guidelines.

    Although most of the time an interior designer is a separate job from being an architect, it's not impossible to be both. With that said, if you are designing interiors professionally and want to work in architecture later on, then getting some architectural experience can't hurt. In any case, this is your only choice because you cannot become one without first being the other. Please note that for most jobs an interior design degree will suffice but as you have a more complex use of space like hospitals and airplanes, just having experience won't do you need both degrees.

    There is a difference between architecture and interior design. Interior designers work mainly with the interior of a house, the paint colors, materials, furniture and placement. Architects on the other hand are more hands-on in designing and drawing up plans for buildings including houses to skyscrapers with the structural integrity components necessary to make them structurally sound. Though there is crossover from time to time in an architect's responsibility for things like drafting schematics or even picking out fixtures, it's usually not their main profession duty. Architecture would be much more involved than just picking tiles out from catalogs but we digress.
