I'm Alla and I'm an architect! Here is my website 

I have four years’ experience as architect and designer in an architectural bureau in Moscow, Russia. The work of the bureau focuses mainly on projects related to the development of the city in which I lived, and the head of the office has participated in the design of  the city's master plan. I worked on projects of different scale and complexity, such as a low-rise housing complex, a hotel, renovation projects, and commercial and residential interior design projects.

In my current position, I am an architect at Fabrication Laboratory, Moscow, and I also work as an independent architect and designer. I developed a number of urban projects aimed at increasing the level of comfort of the urban space and living environment: an urban mini-park, additional parking spaces in residential yards, as well as a project of summer street cafes.

Graduation diploma: “School Complex,Troitsk”
Studio: Sergey Kuznetsov and Marina Zobkova

During my education in Moscow Architectural Institute I developed a number of projects for my hometown, Troitsk, considering the current problems and difficulties. One of the projects was a multifunctional residential complex based on one of the existing scientific institutions. The project proposal included a reorganization of the existing buildings, the optimization of the processes and functions, the organization of jobs due to the influx of migration and service sectors, the creation of new infrastructure, as well as new to the Russian market rental housing. In another project, I developed a school complex on an abandoned site on a river bank, which, in addition to the basic educational purpose, functions as a recreation area, a cultural and sports center, as well as a park and marina on the waterfront.
