The awards won by architect Nasko Petkov from ARCHIN atelier for the interiors designed by him are well deserved
In his work he elegantly overcomes not only aesthetic, but also functional and practical challenges. We talked with him about his professional philosophy and his latest projects, interiors А16 and LT11.
What is the impressive interior for you?
Aesthetics and ergonomics, innovation and detailed research are the qualities we implement in the interiors we create. We are immersed in the idea of transformation and habitat improvement, of creating the perfect symbiosis of aesthetics and functionality. Each element in the process of creating a new space is crucial for the end result. This is what makes our engagement to search for the perfect balance of colours, lightning and continuity of used materials for the creation of a pleasant and stylish ambience.
Architect Nasko Petkov
Your project А16 was awarded a House of the Year prize. What defines it as a space?
The interior of flat А16 reflects our vision of a home that combines contemporary lifestyle, design and functionality. Creating an additional bedroom was one of the main tasks. Smaller space does not necessarily mean sacrifice of style and comfort. We transformed the space by opening the kitchen to the living room. This created the feel of spaciousness and lightness and freed space for the additional bedroom. We preserved the natural daylight by separating the new bedroom with sliding glass doors. Understanding the flat's restricted volumes, we created a function that fully corresponds to it. The modern feel and the cosiness of a home were accentuated by the successful colour combination of black and white with wood decor. Piano lacquer, marble and precise use of brass details add up to the feel of elegant luxury.
What was the most exciting part of your work on project LT11?
We worked on it during the first Covid-19 crisis that messed up all of our deadlines. The factories in Italy and the whole of Europe stopped manufacturing and deliveries. The compound where the flat is located implemented a special entry regime and only one worker was allowed in at a time. We succeeded to impeccably finish the flat, its owner gave the most important appraisal: A+!
