Who are we? Our studio of interior design and architecture comprises ideas and aesthetics such as: minimalism, comfort, efficiency, modern fresh approach etc. Every new project is first of all the embodiment of a certain idea, reflection on the future or rethinking of the past. Architecture quietly influence life and largely determines it. Floor, ceiling height, color scheme, natural and artificial light, location of the work area and a chill area are all important details that affect everyday life.
The interior design studio is all about people with common views and beliefs. They should also be opened to all new ideas refreshing their professional skills constantly. Our clients are the main source of inspiration and common work is always fruitful. Mostly clients imagine the result, and the studio knows how to achieve it, so this is a short answer why should you hire an architect.
Work of an architect. Architectural education involves various courses, it is difficult to attribute it to technical or humanitarian science, because in practice you will need knowledge in both areas and a little bit more – your intuition. The task of such specialist is to understand the client, find the best approach and explain how to implement it. It is necessary to be able to communicate with people, listen to them, follow their desires, and share your professional experience and knowledge. An architect should have a true artistic taste and to know exactly how the concept on paper would be embodied in real life. Architectural and interior design is a synonym to planning, the main task of which is to avoid surprises during construction, because they always affect the budget. In addition to communicating with the client, the architect must also keep in touch with contractors, monitor progress, and provide updated information. Such services are not cheap, it is true, but they are still cheaper than mistakes that can be made without a specialist. In short, the project is designed to give an accurate instruction for the desired result and monitor its implementation at all stages.
The key concept. The idea that was mentioned at the beginning relates to the whole project and all stages of work. This is a guideline that provides the basis for any decision. According to the principle of academic drawing – “from the general to the particular”, it is useful to constantly return to the basis; this allows you to avoid guesses and clearly keep in mind the whole idea.
Context and situation. We imagine the project to be neat, clear and efficient. As a good speech that should be thoroughly prepared to be understandable and clear. Words without context have little meaning and are likely to be ignored.
Unlike artists who work with clean canvas, the architect always has a “background” for his work, whether it is a natural or urban landscape, the new building must interact with it so as not to be taken out of context. One of the main directions of the studio’s work is the design of private houses, so we often deal with the natural environment and consider the minimalist approach to be the best one in this situation. The minimalist approach with its narrow color palette and calm natural materials helps to point out such basic categories as: simple geometric shapes, neat composition, Importance of daylight and shadow, volumes and emptiness for a hose to become a part of the natural environment.
Definition and individuality. The house is a story about the owners. Zoning, type of planning, purpose of rooms, decoration, and many other details, these are all solutions that make up an entire picture of their daily lives. The design completely loses its meaning and individuality without a proper definition of client’s priorities, wishes and lifestyle. We thoroughly study habits of our clients to better understand the future «soul» of the house, with all premises and zones, their approximate areas and purpose. In the book “The Timeless Way of Building” the author claims that in our mind cities are connected with our brightest memories about them, and the same applies to housing – the main things are people, events and memories.
Minimalism, eclecticism, common sense. So, it is difficult to find a place for a particular style in a modern interior design studio. Of course, we can try to imagine design as an atlas, where finding the necessary page, you can find out what details will be able to assemble a project in a certain style. But it is only a tool of communication between the customer and the architect that can shed some light on the project. We should stick to the main idea, mixing styles and ways of interpretation always looking for the best solution for our client. From this point of view, the studio is guided by its own professional taste and proven solutions being always open for further experiments.
Practice. Our team comprises people with common mindset and goals. We are open for dialog and prioritize clients’ wishes and desires. It’s also important that our team comprises experts in various fields. An integrated approach allows them to consider all the nuances and details of the project, look at it from several perspectives at the same time, and anticipate risks. But the project is only a halfway, the implementation is still ahead, and we want to entrust it to proven partners. Due to the base of contractors and suppliers, our own construction crews, and many years of cooperation with reliable furniture companies, we realize projects of various types and complexity. The studio takes projects all over Ukraine, in Kyiv, Kharkiv, Dnipro, Lviv, Odessa, Zaporizhia and other cities. You can read more about our services and prices in here.
