Interior designers are driven by the desire to improve the spaces we spend time in. By designing spaces to look better, people feel better about themselves and therefore live better, more fulfilling lives.
Good design requires creative problem solving: artfully drawing together the human need; the desired function and the limitations of a space to create moments that elicit positive emotional responses and frame experiences for the better.
This is about more than simply making things look good. Interior design is a specialism that weaves art with behavioural and psychological science to frame the story of a space and create the conditions for how someone lives and understands their own experiences within it.
We teach you this art and science; helping you understand how to take people on a journey through a space and orchestrate emotion.
An interior designer starts with a strategy – prioritising people and the human experience at the beginning of the design process. This requires deep empathy and understanding of people and what drives them. While this may sound simple, it is amazing how many designs fail, simply because they didn’t take human need, emotion and aspiration into account from the beginning. We train your perspective; guiding you to ask the right questions so that your designs enhance human experience rather than stifle it.
We bring the power of this perspective and our passion for good design into your learning experience. We expect you to go on a transformative journey throughout the course, as you are trained to see and question your surroundings from a different perspective.
