Milka Terzieva, co-founder, on the perfect home interior
Fourth Dimension is a young studio with an ambitious goal: to help clients rethink the concept of space. Milka Terzieva, co-founder, shares more.
What is the mission of Fourth Dimension studio?
Our core mission is to help our clients rethink what space is and what home interior and functionality are.
What do you aim to achieve with your projects?
For us at Fourth Dimension it is important to create a home that reflects the client's individuality and lifestyle. Our golden rule is based on three equal principles: functionality, budget and style.
What is the work at Fourth Dimension with clients?
When a client comes to Fourth Dimension, our first task is to see the actual place, not just the architectural layout. We want to personally see its actual condition. Then we discuss with the clients their preferences for style and colours. At this stage of the process we, at Fourth Dimension, are interested not only in your preferred style, but also in your lifestyle. We want to know how big your family is, do you have pets, what is your social environment and life, do you like to often host guests. Knowing such details is crucial when designing an interior.
Then we offer you an initial design with the home's functional layout, followed by 3D visualisation, materials and furniture selection, furniture design. When the home is ready we offer an additional option to decorate it. If you want a truly exquisite space, the decoration should comply with design. Nothing should be either too little or too much.
What modern interior trends fit best your personal style?
My partner and I have often talked about how to define the style of Fourth Dimension. We are trying to establish as our personal style something that we call modern minimalism. It blends love for clear, straight lines and shapes with the right combination of warm and cold colours, and perfectly combined details to achieve a balanced space. Of course, we cannot apply this in all of our projects, as some clients have clearly defined ideas of the design that they want.
Which part of your work is the most interesting for you?
The initial phase, when the clients come with the plans of the home they have bought. Changing the layout of a space to something that will fit the needs of the clients better is like solving a complex case. We try different combinations and variants as there are many details that need consideration, for example should we move the water, sewage and electricity systems, and how.
The most interesting part is to create a new space from an already existing one. To offer a solution that the clients have never envisioned when they bought the home, and which they will love.
What is the perfect interior for you?
For us, at Fourth Dimension, the perfect interior harmonically combines functionality with budget and style.
I will give you a simple example. When we design a kitchen, we want it not only to look beautiful, but also to have enough work surface and storage space, to have enough light and comfortably positioned equipment. We want to make our clients' life easier. The same applies to each space in the home.
This is how we, at Fourth Dimension, see the perfect interior. It should be not only beautiful, but also functional and fitting within the client's budget.
