ECU students shake up the shops along Beaufort Street
Tuesday, 09 June 2009
Edith Cowan University’s (ECU) final-year interior and spatial design students have undertaken a unique project to give retail outlets along Beaufort Street in Mount Lawley a complete re-design and makeover.
Nine students have been working with Beaufort Street clients including Headturners Hair Design, Behind the Monkey, Synergy Shoes, Libertine, Pollennation, Priority 1 Real Estate, Ruck Rover and Exomod Café.
Students will be showcasing their designs in an exhibition at Spectrum Project Space in Northbridge.
The exhibition opening will be held from 6.00pm on Friday, 12 June and continues on Saturday, 13 and Sunday, 14 June open from 2.00pm to 6.00pm.
Course Coordinator Monita Roughsedge says the students have come up with some truly innovative design concepts and have gained invaluable industry experience by working closely with their clients.
“The exhibition is a great chance to see the work of Perth’s emerging interior and spatial designers,” she says.
The Interior and Spatial Design course at ECU is offered at the Mount Lawley Campus as a major in the Bachelor of Creative Industries.
The three year course incorporates the theoretical and practical aspects of designing both temporary and permanent three dimensional environments.For more information about careers in Interior and Spatial Design, contact ECU Student Recruitment on 134 328
