What will I learn?

The Commercial Interior Design degree prepares you to take on the world as a creative interior designer. Commercial interior designers work on cafes, bars, hotels, restaurants, exhibitions and workspaces. They may also design interiors for game designs, virtual worlds and animations. In the Commercial Interior program you will explore branding, sustainability, brand management, design culture, digital worlds, lighting, materiality and documentation.

In today’s connected economy, brands want to create appealing and unique environments that connect with their consumers. Throughout the course, you will explore the theoretical and practical elements of designing and making commercial interiors – branding, lighting, sustainability and materiality – to create environments that meet your client’s needs. You will discover how commercial interior-design strategies are developed and assessed. You’ll gain practical industry-based management skills, such as documentation, contract management, professional design practice and cross-disciplinary interaction. And you’ll apply theory to practice by creating a range of commercial interior-design solutions for real clients. Using industry standard software, you’ll build the skills to communicate information that’s relevant to designing, costing and constructing interiors, and find out how to represent spatial environments. You’ll engage with contemporary theory and gain an overview of the leading interior-design trends of the past that still have a powerful influence today, as well as those of the present and look towards the future. During the course, you can apply for an internship with one of our industry partners, giving you real-world experience, contacts in the interior-design industry and material for your professional portfolio. Our graduates, who have the creativity, skills and experience to create state-of-the art, attractive and appropriate commercial interiors are in demand with the leading interior-design firms, nationally and internationally.
