New trends of interior architectural design aim to maximize available spatial space for flexible and futuristic interiors. Therefore, the design of a facility structure with its fixed and moveable interior components can have a significant impact on human performance leading to efficient interaction with surrounding spatial spaces. Interactive design is constantly proves creating memorable connection and empowering connection with beneficiaries’ participants that can come to life in many forms, one of these many facility structures is implementing the interior architectural design approach of "Kinetic Technology". Interior architecture is the design of a space inside any building that can be fixing. In addition, it can be the initial design and plan for use then later redesign to accommodate a changed purpose, or a significantly revised design for adaptive reuse of the building shell. Generally referred to as the spatial art of environmental design, form and practice, interior architecture is the process through which the interiors of buildings are designed concerned with all aspects of the human uses of structural spatial spaces. Therefore putting simply, Interior Architecture is the design of an interior in architectural terms. The paper presents variety approaches of innovation trends, that utilizing multiple kinetic applications for the scope, benefit of interior design elements. It will give valid benefits to interior planners and designers for efficient enhancement into their practical expertise. That experience will be achieved when implementing this technology of kinetic approach to achieve effective utilization of interior spatial spaces as dynamic quality of the spatial space’s changeable size, continuity and to create a feeling of connectivity through the spatial space, which seems to virtual enlarge the small floor area.
