The hit BBC One show Interior Design Masters will be starting Turkish architectural Buse Gubuz in its new season.
It is presented by comedian Alan Carr and judged by interiors guru Michelle Ogundehin, who is on the hunt for talent, passion and dazzling designs, will be airing on Monday March 7 at 8 pm.
The new series will also feature talented architectural Buse Gubuz from England who will compete against 9 other designers to win a commercial contract. Each week, a different challenge is set, designed to test their ability to meet a variety of customer briefs in different commercial and residential environments. Competitors redesign commercial spaces throughout the series, from shops to restaurants and lounges.
Young entrepreneur Buse who is a contestant in the “Interior Design Masters” program spoke with Londra Gazete the about her journey into architecture and interior design.
“I am an architectural designer by training. I have a master’s degree in architecture from UCL. When I started working in the sector, I preferred more artistic companies. I worked for an interactive art company that created large light installations in public spaces and later worked for a famous set designer. Just before the pandemic in 2019 I decided to try my hand at interior design and fell in love.
“My first project was Cambridge Spark offices next to Cambridge train station and now I have set up my own practice called STUDIOBUSE. I’ve been running my own business for 4 years now and have had more than 25 projects across the country. I mainly work on residential projects with occasional commercial projects. I like to keep my services as affordable as possible, but my process takes time and energy as I treat each room I design as an individual and unique opportunity to create something special! …”
Describing her style as ‘MOODY MID-CENTRY’ she said “I have the colors of mid-century architecture. I enjoy adding pops of color here and there but – most importantly, I want to add warmth to spaces. I love working with wood and adding wood panels to my spaces …”
Asked why she applied for the program Buse explained “I applied to interior architects as I saw it as a unique opportunity to showcase my talent. I have a rich background in the arts. I have the ability to do most things myself and love the process of making what the show requires due to tight budgets. It’s a bit different from real-world interior design because you have to be a lot more involved in making things, but it was an exciting experience where I learned a lot.”
