This course provides students with the expertise to produce spaces that enhance the quality of life and experience of occupants. Students will undertake interior design projects in practical studio settings and participate in independent and collaborative problem solving. They will be supported by contemporary, relevant teaching and a focus on new and emergent fields including small and large-scale design in real and virtual environments, physical and digital experimentation, body/space relations, and design for health and social inclusion. During the course they will conceptualise and develop their designs through expertise in spatial thinking and detailed resolution, using models, full-scale material constructs and digital animations. Many interior designers work independently or in both small and large practices. Others elect to work in multidisciplinary firms specialising in large-scale complex architectural and property development projects, both locally and internationally. Alternative career areas include retail, and theatre and event design, and exhibition design, such as in gallery or museum settings.
