This qualification describes the skills and knowledge required for creative and technical solutions for built interior environments. Interior design at this level covers the planning and detailing of complex residential, commercial and institutional design projects with an emphasis on space creation, space planning and the factors that affect peoples' responses to living and working environments. It may also include specialist design areas, such as facilities for people with disabilities, institutional design, exhibitions, the aged and adaptive re-use projects. Vocational outcomes include interior designers for interior design and architectural practices, self-employed design consultants, design project administrators and design managers. Work involves using a significant range of fundamental principles and complex techniques across a wide and often unpredictable variety of contexts in relation to either varied or highly specified functions. Accountability and responsibility for self and others in achieving outcomes is involved.
This qualification is typically used to develop a breadth, depth and complexity of skills and knowledge for interior design processes which follow a systematic and coordinated methodology, including research, analysis and integration of knowledge into the creative process, and knowledge of the principles of interior design and building technologies. Designs must meet the purpose, efficiency, comfort, safety and aesthetic requirements of interior spaces, adhere to regulatory requirements and encourage the principles of environmental sustainability.
