Tara Vellara received her Master's degree in Interior Design from Pratt Institute, New York in May 2020 and her Bachelors of Architecture from Dayananda Sagar School of Architecture, India in August 2018. Her transition from Architecture to Interior design arises from her interest to interact with the end user at a personal level as she believes that interiors can alter design radically due to it’s powerful ability to alter and affect an individual both, psychologically and physically. Through her practice and studies, Tara is working to understand the interdisciplinary nature of design, and how that can be used to positively impact the built environment.

Her area of expertise lies in space planing, conceptual designing, time management, leadership and software skills - revit, autocad, adobe-suite, photoshop, sketchup. lumion, rhino.
