ARCHITECTURE STUDIO GEORGIEV: EXCELLENT ARCHITECTURE IN PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE TENSE

In 1992, established architect Krasimir Georgiev created one of the first studios for property investment and architecture on the Bulgarian market

Soon, Architecture Studio Georgiev collected a rich portfolio of projects in residential, public and commercial properties, industrial and master planning. With time, his son Krasimir Georgiev Jr took the reins. Under his management, Architecture Studio Georgiev has expanded towards use of cutting-edge construction materials and digital tools, and a holistic approach towards architectural solutions that unite the initial idea, the investor's desires and the function with the project's natural, cultural and historical environment. Krasimir Georgiev Jr shares more.

Your studio is introducing environmentally friendly materials on the Bulgarian market such as straw panels. What are they for?

Made of wood and straw, straw panels are a sustainable and green passive construction material. They are as energy efficient and have the same thermal transmittance as traditional passive materials, say mineral or stone wadding, but their production is much more environmentally friendly. They have no carbon footprint. When built well, they are practically eternal. I believe that straw panels are the building material of the future. We already used them successfully in Polyane Green Village in Pozharevo, near Sofia.

You also use environmental clay concrete. Why?

Environmental clay concrete is the result of advanced technology that returns clay to its primordial condition: a rock. It is a greener alternative to concrete and it actually saves money as it eliminates a number of steps in construction.

Investment building remains a core activity for Architecture Studio Georgiev. What does the property market look like? What trends do you see and what is its future?

We work on our investment projects both independently and with partners. We not only identify plots with potential, prepare a business plan, and do master planning and architecture design. We also efficiently deal with all the red tape required for a project to receive green light.

Last year some investors worried that clients would lose interest. This did not happen. Bulgaria still needs enough quality residential properties, the potential is still here. The country is relatively small, with relatively good railway network. Why should everyone flock to the big cities and large blocks of apartments where living is stressful and anonymous? Living in a house is much better, especially if you can work from distance and the railway network is modernised and efficient. I believe that in the future places near Sofia, such as the Iskar Gorge, will attract more attention. We, as a society, are already moving towards reevaluating our lifestyle and living closer to nature.

How one of your latest projects, a residential compound in central Bozhurishte, fits these trends?

Bozhurishte is a pleasant town and is close to Sofia. Its expanding industrial area attracts a lot of commuters, but the municipality has a policy for more green spaces. Considering all these, residential properties in Bozhurishte have significant potential. The project we work on is centrally located yet it is basically in a park. The flats' sizes are good. An attractive place for people who work in Bozhurishte or seek a less stressful urban environment.

What principles do you follow when you design interiors?

Space excites me. It is harder to play with it in new construction but older buildings allow me to reconstruct and transform their spaces. I love the process of understanding a space and brining light into it. My approach is rather minimalistic, but I always aim at enriching a space with historical and vintage references. Let's say that my style is timeless.

I have specialised restoration and conservation, and I like having a vintage detail here and there. One has to be careful with these, as they should appear as an organic part of an interior.

I am not a slave to brands of furniture and home accessories, because personal taste and style are more important for a quality interior. I am interested in functionality and I often work with Bulgarian craftsmen. Bulgaria has amazing artisans, but sadly there is no platform where they can advertise to consumers. If more craftsmen find their way to the Bulgarian client, local homes would have much more individuality, warmth, life. I am really into artisanal approach, I like the feeling that an object has been touched by a warm and skilled human hand.

You are a man of many interests. What is your latest passion?

I am dedicated to architecture and constantly improve myself. My latest specialisation was in parametric BIM modelling. This digital technology is used by the biggest international bureaus as it allows complex design of structured models with improved flexibility and efficiency. BIM modelling unleashes a multitude of design opportunities with endless variations and results. It is a game-changer that will redefine architecture design in the future.
