Who's it for?

Interior Design is for the space curator who sees the whole picture. It requires a willingness to walk around in the shoes of others and work to solve real human problems in a physical and experiential way. It is for the detail-oriented, the big picture thinker, the placemaker and the emotionally intelligent. Most importantly, Interior Design is about understanding and manipulating the feeling, emotion and purpose of a space.

It’s What’s Inside That Counts

People are so preoccupied with what they are doing, why they are doing it and with whom that they rarely stop to think about the where. Whether it’s their office, school, or even their homes, humans spend 93% of their lives indoors interacting with spaces that can either enhance or detract from their experience of everyday life. This is the often invisible realm of the Interior Designer.

Going Out In Style

While architects make beautiful boxes, interior design is about making those spaces work aesthetically and functionally. From acoustics, to lighting, customer retention and pedestrian flow — interior designers pull it all together, while also considering trends, personal style and the client’s needs for the space. Interior designers need to curate spaces that feel simultaneously fresh and timeless.

Industry Guests

During your time at Foundry, you’ll benefit from our industry guests as part of our Foundry LIVE creative day conferences. We frequently fly national guests to Tasmania to speak to our students about their experiences as working creatives. Outrageous? Perhaps to others. But to us it’s a must-have part of the Foundry experience? Absolutely.

Support Your Learning
In Co-Lab

Co-Lab is a cornerstone element of studying at Foundry. We dedicate both time and a whole campus space to this element of your learning. Designed to mimic the lightly structured environment of a working creative studio - where interactions are encouraged and problems are solved in a group environment - this is where, guided by your Co-Lab Mentor you can work on assessments, get help or advice or dive a little deeper into an element of your studies which has really ignited your creative juices.
