Goals

This was with an invitation from architect Ognian Grozev and the customer Mladen Mutafchiiski / biggest art collector in Bulgaria.

Process

In the beginning, the space was photographed and the design became three-dimensional visualized for approval by the client. The dome had to hide an existing huge element of the ceiling, which the owner did not want to demolish, but also not to see. The dome was built entirely of floral elements and crystal accents that carried light. Then the art elements and the stained glass windows were designed for the niches and the high windows. The overall sound of the interior was mastered by the visual elements present in all works, which united them and made them a common collection.

Additional Information

The main element is a laurel branch.
