About this course

Focused on the dynamic relations between people and the surrounding environment, this ideas-led design program explores the potential and future of interior design as a practice.

In the 21st century, the definition of ‘interior’ can no longer be simply equated to the inside of a building. Conditions of interior and interiority are increasingly affected and transformed by contemporary technologies as well as social and cultural forces and relationships.

This program will challenge your assumptions about interior design. You will learn to think and operate like a designer and, studying in a highly creative studio setting, you will learn from distinguished design practitioners.

You will learn to design through the process of responding to a range of design briefs from the conceptual to real-life situations. You will be provided with technical and communication tools such as AutoCAD, 3D imaging, hand-drawing, film production and model making, as well as verbal presentation skills.

You'll have the opportunity to travel and engage with industry through workshops and projects that allow you to respond to complex design challenges.

Students in third and fourth year will have the opprtunity to undertake interships and gain valuable experience with leading design practices in Melbourne and internationally.

Four years of ideas-led designing

Working in a highly creative studio setting, you will develop rich experiential sensibilities and a sophisticated range of approaches to the design of interior environments. These could range from detailed, material-focused projects including furniture and joinery, to event-based situations like exhibitions, installations and performances, or large-scale complex projects such as commercial spaces, retail precincts and public or community centres.

Different interiors are considered from architectural, retail, exhibition and urban environments to digital and filmic spaces, performance and theatre design, art installations and more.
