INK interior architects

INK interior architects is a practise led by Dana Vuletic, focusing on high end retail and hospitality interiors. Dana operates as a sole trader and has completed over 50 projects since establishing the studio in 2014.

Each project is approached with gusto, regardless of size or budget. The success of INK's projects is attributed to a clear brief, an honest finishes palette and refined detail. Spatial acumen and an understanding of proportion, light and ambience are elements that underpin each interior. The aesthetic is contemporary, textured and moody, with a hint of masculinity. Each design solution carries these qualities but is also responsive to a client's brief, budget and site conditions which allows diversity across the portfolio of work. 

In pursuit of quality design, the studio is steadfast and tenacious, yet humble and approachable. An emphasis is placed on remaining adaptable and creative when facing challenges associated with high pressure and modest budget projects. Great design is often achieved from such limitations. 

The studio explores unexpected, often raw finishes and a rigorous process of detailing joinery, architectural gestures and junctions; the micro elements that add a level of sophistication and thoughtfulness. To execute quality and well-crafted construction, the studio establishes collaborative relationships with clients, builders, joiners and bespoke trades. 

In 2016, with less than 2 years of practise, INK received 3 nominations in Australia's Interior Design Excellence Awards in the Retail and Emerging Designer categories. This national awards program showcases work from the most respected and innovative design studios. With a handful of nominations, INK was honoured to be recognised by peers and contribute to the new wave of small practises gaining momentum in the design community.

Dana's career is a culmination of diverse experience which began at a Sydney based architecture and interiors practise. Following a long and successful stint, Dana branched out to establish INK and dedicate her skills to creating highly detailed, quietly confident and responsive interiors.
