The project “Sirens of Titan”
The project “Sirens of Titan”, referring to the novel of the same name by Kurt Vonnegut was inspired by reflections on the changes taking place in modern design in Russia and in the world in general.
Probably, therefore, created on the wave of strong inspiration, it turned out to be quite simple and concise, despite the complexity of the collected elements on closer examination.

VOLDEMAR DEREVENETZ – STUDIO DV CREATIV
Architect from a small town of Sarov, in the Nizhny Novgorod region.
His studio is a family business that he leads for more than fifteen years. As a first professional step he had a professional technical education, only then he received an architectural one. But that this is what allows him to think creatively, not dwell on stereotypes and rules.
Quote: “Finishing the next project, we think we’ve reached the pinnacle of skill, but starting a new project, we understand that we don’t know anything about design and we start learning again. Always looking for something new, inspired by the interesting content. Any detail may become the basis of the project, around which will unfold the entire interior.
Design is emotion, which either inspires you or not. And it is crucial in our work.
The Project “Reflections”
The main objective was to create a comfortable, ergonomic and respectable interior, but at the same time cozy and warm. A tranquil, calming colors was chosen, with a repeating pattern that sets the rhythm. The interior is made in a unified manner, and thanks to the combinations of materials it looks very harmoniously. The interior design is rather rigid, rectilinear, but softened by the soft texture of the suede panels on the walls.
The design idea was based on the technical column (with the communications) that stands right in the center of the apartment, which was a huge problem. But if you can not hide something – put it in the center and make it the essence idea of the interior. So this project was born.
We would like to thank the company GARDENIA ORCHIDEA for allowing us to participate in this contest and for a decent evaluation of our work.
