Alina Dain Interior Designer, Peddle Thorp Architects, Melbourne
Bachelor of Interior Architecture (honours) 2012

I love that as a designer, I have the ability to craft experiences through spatial practice. Design is a powerful tool that can positively contribute to wellbeing, health, social change, working and learning. It’s very rewarding seeing your project “come to life” as a physical, inhabitable space – a space that has the potential to transform how people engage with the built environment.

My tutors at Monash really nurtured creative thinking and helped me challenge the traditional notions of what Interior Architecture can be. I graduated with foundation skills that have helped me as a designer and have gone on to pursue teaching and volunteering opportunities alongside my design career.
