|Design| Interior Architectural- Spatial Design – Front End, Schematic & Design Development.

Throughout my 18 years of design career, with my intrinsic tendency to empathise with others and keen abductive thinking, I have grown passionate about creating a strong design vision and spatial design that transcend beyond the functional brief and the now. I also strive to advocate Inclusive Culture that embraces diversity, through Interior and Spatial Design.
My experience spread across various types of design projects with varying complexities, ranging from private to multi-residential, community housing, commercial to justice and civic design. Front-end interior spatial design, from pre-design, conceptual to design development, is my prominent strength, where I can come in to collaborate and assist best.

I welcome the opportunities to assist and collaborate in the following:
• Brief formulation.
• Design visions and standards/ benchmarking.
• Stakeholders engagement and workshops.
• Spatial layout design.
• Conceptual/ schematic design package and illustrations.
• Design development package.
• Design modulation and documentation strategy.

Currently, I am also a PhD candidate at Swinburne University of Technology (2017-2023), Faculty of Health, Arts and Design, under the supervision of Professor Mark Taylor, Dr Nanette Carter and Dr Kirsten Day. My research is about space design for individuals with visual impairments.
