…our point is

•Architects Traditionally Train As… Designers Of Buildings, Urban Planers Authorities Of Code, Egress, Accessibility, Construction And Building Systems

•Interior Designers Are Specifically Trained As Specialists Of Interior Design Practices – It Is The Core Practice And Skill Set

•Architectural Firms Offer Interior Design As A Supplement To The Architectural Services – It Is A Supportive Practice To The Architecture

•Interior Designers In Architectural Firms Are Subject To The Hierarchical Restraints Imposed By The Architectural Principals

•Interior Design Firms Interface With Architectural Firms Enabling The Architect To Serve The Client In The Administration Of Building Code, Building Systems, Construction And Supervision

•In Other Words…Clients Delegate Interior Design To An Interior Designer And Architectural Services To An Architect
