Typically a facility of this type is the hub of any professional design studio; it is a key learning resource here at RSID. It houses a comprehensive and current collection of interior product catalogues and materials relevant to the study and practice of interior design. Our Resource Specialist and student assistants staff the Centre throughout the year. The centre also houses a reference collection of unique design-related books and magazines. The more students learn about materials and their properties, the more successful their projects become.
