Meet BHC’s alumni:

It’s been one and a half years since graduation – time is just flying. Every now and then I am thinking of the little secrets you thought us and of course the amazing time at BHC. I am working in a team of 5 internal architects for a year now and I am loving it. I’ve started with an internship and now working as an interior designer. I am currently finishing up my first project a little hotel (29 rooms) on the German coast. I really must say that you and the whole BHC team did a really amazing job preparing me for the work life.

My clients are in HK, Sydney, London and perhaps soon Dubai with the team spread across the globe too. We collaborate online over time zones. I follow the summer Bali, Berlin, Cape Town, now Porto in Portugal.

What’s Interior Design?

Create systems that incorporate the physical, emotional and digital aspects of humanity. Interior design is all about creating spaces that cater for a brand — or a person’s essence — their very identity. But interior design is much more than that. It is about creating remarkable spaces aimed to enhance productivity, ensure the physical well being of humans, as well as to inspire or to make a statement.


What is interior décor?

Interior decorating is all about the art, and science, of composition. It is about making rooms and spaces more functional, beautiful, and comfortable for the people that use them. If you’ve decorated your home or office you’ve been involved in doing interior decorating. Interior design is all about the structure of spaces, while interior décor is about using colour, lighting, furniture and other adornments to make spaces come alive. Or to achieve a specific goal. Or to align with a specific brand.


What you’ll work with at BHC:

Your toolkit will include technology, Virtual Reality, colour, light, furniture, architecture, physical space. Collaborate with some of the world’s top brands. As an interior designer you could see your artistry expressed in massive retail environments. Stately homes. Big business parks. Or next generation work spaces.
