Interview with Russian Interior Designer Alexandra Fedorova – Born in Moscow, Alexandra Fedorova has an extensive background in architecture, being quite the accomplished artist in the field. Having worked in institutions, such as UB Design Studio, SUE Moscow Research and Mosproekt 4, the gifted architect and designer has managed her own architectural bureau since 2004, getting specialised in designing residential and public buildings as well as interiors.
With many years of experience in this industry, Fedorova revealed that her passion and creativity are what drive her to create astonishing projects, she discloses, “The most pleasant thing is to have satisfaction from the final result, when you look at the beautiful photos and remember how long and accurate it was to create all the details.”
Best describing her philosophy as timeless, her bureau prides itself on conceiving trendy and valuable settings and designs that will still matter as time goes by. Independently of the type of service, they always approach a work from an architectural standpoint, as she explained, “We create living environments for people in the form of volumetric and spatial compositions, which may be supplemented by accessories, if and when necessary, but the essence of the space remains the same.”
Ten years ago, the interior designer and architect started a project that consisted of 15 topical houses in Pestovo, one of the biggest suburban villages of Russia. In an attention-grabbing tale, one of the houses was recently bought and the owner had no prior knowledge that Alexandra had built it, as he requested her expertise to work in the interiors. This served as a major inspiration for the designer to return to an old project as she created “some façade finishing and interior” along with a smaller guest house placed nearby.
In order to have the best outcome, Fedorova believes that one must pay close attention to every particularity of a project, emphasising the importance of discovering the right architects or designers. It is not an individual art form, it is rather complex and lengthy, thus the designer gives a piece of advice in not trying to do everything by oneself.
