Borislav Milenov, CEO, on how to create the perfect space

Is there such a thing like the perfect space? For the young and ambitious architects and interior designers at BASE Architecture & Design studio the answer is a resounding yes. After all, they constantly push towards achieving it in every project they work on. Borislav Milenov, CEO, elaborates.

What in your opinion makes an interior a finished, complete space?

Each interior is a complex task that includes work in several directions without which it will never look complete. The selection of the materials, their combination with the right lighting, the good acoustics, the artistic accents and a couple of well selected and arranged plants create cosiness that characterise the inhabitants and their feel of space.

How do you achieve it in your work?

In residential interiors the creation and the right organisation of space is a two-way, long process that engages both the designers and the clients. Some non-standard solutions require many meetings. Practice has demonstrated that architecture creates habits that evolve with time if the conditions are right. Until the moment of creating something new, clients usually have their own ideas that are generally well within their comfort zone. We, for our part, work with a lot of clients and have a comprehensive look at many possible solutions to the same task, which vary in accordance with how the particular space is being inhabited. Our main task is to bring the pieces together and to assemble the most suitable combination for the particular task and client. In public interiors the task is harder as the inhabitants have different preferences, but it is always connected to bringing more character to the site.

We live in times of fast developing technologies. How do they affect architecture and interior design?

We, at BASE, perceive the technologies in the modern home as an additional, invisible presence. Home automation allows systems to guess our future actions and desires, which for its parts leads to creating new habits. In a home environment this is achieved best with the systems for heating and lightning, the automated curtains etc. A well designed and trained system for automation can create incredible comfort of inhabitation.

Is it possible to combine a highly creative activity, such as design, and automation? What are the advantages of this approach?

The two do not obstruct each other, on the contrary! Automation can strengthen the feel of how an interior is perceived at a particular moment. Preliminary set scenes, coordinated with the interior's character, can transform the space in mere seconds – from the way it opens the curtains to wake the inhabitants up, to gradually increasing the lights while they head for their morning shower, to coordinating the colours of the lights according to what time is it, for example with colourful decorative lightning reminiscent of the sunset at the end of the day or subdued evening lightning suitable for dinner and relaxation. Setting the particular scenario to fit both the inhabitants and the interior requires significant creativity.
