  • I was born and raised in St. Petersburg, Russia. In this “Venice of the North,” crowded with splendid palaces, cathedrals, tree-lined avenues and beautiful bridges, I was enlightened from my earliest years by fine arts and classical music, which were my first inspirations, and ultimately led me to become an architect and designer. Subsequent to completing my advanced studies in architecture at Ben- Gurion University in Israel (BA), I have had the privilege of working with prestigious design and architectural firms in Israel and the United States. My rigorous architectural approach to space planning, form creation, and detail is evident in all of my work. I believe in the constant exploration of design languages and diverse use of materials, color palettes, and concepts that are specific to each new project and its physical context. I am not satisfied until the finest results are produced using methodologies that include evidence based design, intensive research and due-diligence.

    My areas of expertise have included design for commercial, banking, hospitality, retail, food services, and residential projects. My attention to detail and range of the design scope is evident in all aspects of my clients’ projects, from conceptual sketches and design development to the completion of the project.

    My approach involves carefully listening to clients, successfully understanding needs and desires in order to create compelling environments that work for them.

    PHILOSOPHY

    It only takes a few individuals of open consciousness to create the water ripple effect. The human consciousness is one whole moving evolving energy just the same as an expanse of water, through cause and effect.

    It can only affect all of humanity from a group perspective and as one individual moves thought and consciousness into perfect balance, then the whole whether aware, enlightened or not, will move towards that balance.

    The humankind’s destiny is not in the hands of the governments, the warlords, or even one continent, it is in the hands of the individual and that individual’s right by free will to think and create in that individual’s whole life.

    Therefore, individual thinking affects the life of everything in and around it by being a part of the Universal Consciousness.

  • INFINITY CENTER Harrington College of Design Creative Collaboration, 2011 + group project + 16 weeks

    The Infinity Center is an intellectual retreat that brings together people from all walks of life into a shared space that actively facilitates the exchange and development of new ideas.

    Using the uninterrupted continuity of the infinity symbol to inform the overall design strategy, the project’s architecture is a direct expression of the internal wayfinding strategy.

    A secondary wayfinding system will also be utilized in the from of personalized generative graphics embedded in the flooring. Through the combination of these strategies, stakeholders will be afforded a highly dynamic, transparent experience that provide for both intellectual and physical freedom.

  • The most important wayfinding component is the ramping system that connects all three levels in a fluid, uninterrupted way. The first ramp takes you to the library level, and then continues up to the upper level with the conference center and offices.

    The ramps are a manipulated version of the infinity symbol, in plan, it is in fact that symbol.

    The ramps allow users to easily flow from program to program, and provide for a transparent interior space so that stakeholders are always able to orient themselves in the building.

  • AIRPORT YOGA ROOM

    PROTOTYPE Harrington College of Design Design and Society, 2011 + individual project + 6 weeks

    The proposed project is designed to support the notion of promoting a healthy life style and providing accommodation to the air transit traveler. Today, airports across the country as well as international are striving to improve general accommodation for the traveler, such as shopping experience, food services and personal care.

    However, stress level remains a main issue to a majority of passengers. Long or delayed flights may cause and unpleasant experience through the course of a single trip. Not only physical discomfort occurrence due to still seating position during flights and wait periods appears to be stressful,

    but also the emotional state may be affected.

    Being sensitive to our spiritual needs and connected to our origins may sooth us, bring comfort, or even heal our bodies and souls. Consequently, as a designer, I believe that the emerging social paradigm of holistic attitude

    toward health is demanding the implementation of such accommodations in the public spaces, especially in those that are limited in a natural environment exposure.
