Hello third term! | BHC School of Design

Hello third term!

We can’t believe it is July already (actually, almost August!). It feels like only yesterday that we welcomed our new first years and now in just a few short months, we shall say farewell to our third year and décor graduates.

Let’s just take a moment to reflect on a few of highlights of the past two terms…

Our VR area is officially up and running and the students are definitely enjoying this new addition to the college. Most afternoons are spent exploring new models in virtual reality in the 3rd year studio.

We have launched new BHC hoodies which have been received very well by our students. Not only are they beautiful (or we seem to think so) but they are warm and comfortable – definitely a must-have during the cold wet Cape Town winter.

One of the benefits of having studio masters and lecturers who are active in industry, is that the students on occasion get involved in LIVE briefs – from conception to implementation! One of these projects was the renovation of the Pienaar Brother’s retail warehouse in Paarden Eiland. Our second years were asked to come up with new proposals for the front of house store layout. We are still eagerly awaiting on the client to select his favourite proposal.

Our third years have returned from their 4 week internships. The response from the class was that the entire experience was amazing and they all learned from this opportunity. The class seems to be ready for the last stretch before they graduate at the end of this year…

 

First week back and already hard at work!

These are just a few of the many highlights! We are looking forward to the last two terms which are sure to be filled with some more highlights!
