QUT Interior design graduate creates plan for artist-in-residence space


BRIANNA SCHOEMAKER: So interior designers take care of the inside of the building. So architects take care of what you see from
the outside. Interior designers take care of everyday spaces. So it could be homes or hospitals or workplaces. I really love abstract and conceptual design. Personally I’d love to go into the film industry
and I found that interior design has been a great stepping stone in teaching me the
skills to get me there. But I also designed a project called Converge Art Hotel. It’s a combination between a bar a restaurant
a beer garden as well as an artist in residence program and a hotel. It’s designed so that guests at the hotel
can interact with the artist and residents they can learn new skills. The artists are also inspired by the surrounding
building and Fortitude Valley and all the pieces that they create will then be put back
into the restaurant. I think technology is going to have a big
impact on interior design. Personally I’d love to see virtual reality
coming more into it to be able to step inside the spaces that you’re designing rather than
just seeing them on a screen would be incredible. I think that has a lot of potential. I’d also love to see a lot more men in the field as well. Right now it’s a very female dominated course
but we get so much inspiration from the guys that are in our design teams.
