Beyond any one project’s lifecycle, the interns will gain insight to the industry’s broad range of sectors – exposing them to areas they’re unfamiliar with, so they can learn and delve deeper in their interest areas. James is currently drawn to residential architecture and the personal and involved client relationship it requires, while Michelle is interested in educational interior design, and specifically the process of finding the story in a project throughout the concept phase.
Being embedded within the Arkhefield team facilitates a unique learning environment: a combination of independent and collaborative work, with access to highly experienced professionals for advice and guidance. ‘Everyone is so easy to talk to if you have any questions, or there’s something you don’t know how to do - they’re always open to helping you,’ says James. With every intern keen to develop different skills, from design to documentation to client liaison, we’re confident they’ll emerge from the program with grounded practical knowledge and experience. As we embark on our tenth year of the initiative, we’re proud to continue providing genuine learning opportunities to our interns - and excited to see where their careers will take them.
