Yodezeen Design Studio in Kiev, Ukraine, is a multi-award winning design studio and architecture group. It specializes in redefining the interiors, exteriors, and complete architecture.
The unique blends of natural elements with unconventional styles have led it to become a top-class designer firm with prestigious clients worldwide. Here are some lessons that leaders and the team members of the studio have shared with us for the budding professionals in the industry:
Never Forget The Roots
Specific designs and industrial standards dominate the majority of the world. However, it is indispensable for an architect or designer to remember their roots. By following their culture and principles, they can achieve something new. Each client is looking for something outside the box. You won’t achieve that if you confine yourself to the Industry’s standard practices.
For instance, the revival of Ukrainian design and techniques has played a vital role in the rise of Yodezeen as a prominent studio.
Be Flexible And Spontaneous
Often, high-end clients have expansive tastes and choices. Seldom they might not have seen something. Copying any concept won’t work. Taking inspiration is fine. However, you need to be spontaneous. Don’t be afraid to conduct experiments. That’s how Yodezeen came to be. It worked by combining completely different elements of architecture to stand out.
At the same time, you have to be flexible with the client. It is essential to understand their desire and the idea for the perfect interior, exterior, or architecture. By understanding them, you can spontaneously create new ideas.
Grow Together With Your Team
Any enterprise, business, essential, or firm is incomplete without an incredible team. Therefore, it is important to hire like-minded individuals. Unique personalities, approaches, or methodologies should always be welcomed. However, the passion should be mutual. If there isn’t a satisfied employee willing to put in efforts, it won’t lead to a happy client or a satisfactory result. Don’t be afraid to weed out the potential prospects.
Understand The Zones
Every room and part of the architect plays a vital role. The entire map, every nook, and cranny is pivotal and requires undivided attention to redefine the architecture truly. Correlatively, utilizing and assigning different zones are also integral. People should feel like they have ‘teleported’ to a different realm each time they take a step into another segment. This approach applies to almost every architecture, whether it is residential or commercial.
