Michael Allsopp

I began my journey in design almost 10 years ago when I started my studies at UTS and completed a Bachelor of Design in Architecture. I had always loved buildings and design therefore studying architecture seemed like a logical progression. While at University I discovered the world of interiors and continued to choose only interior subjects for my electives. I continued my studies and graduated with a diploma in Secondary Education (Design and Technology) at ACU.

Upon completion of my course I followed my passion and entered the world of Interior Design where I have worked on various projects including interior concepts, styling and reservations.

For the last 5 years my focus has been designing custom joinery pieces for both residential and commercial clients within Sydney. There projects include renovations, reception desks, media wall units, multi-functional units as well as custom furniture pieces.

This work highlights the importance of material selection, detail in design, budgets as well as the combination of both form and function within built interiors. I feel excited and privileged that I can share my knowledge and experiences of interior design with you all. I hope my guidance and “tricks of the trade” will help equip you for your studies and subsequent professional work within the multidisciplinary world of interior design.
