Guided by passion and curiosity, my architecture journey has taken me across borders and continents. From Russia to India, China, and now the United States, I worked in diverse landscapes, allowing me to evolve from an observer shadowing a construction team to an experienced professional, delivering exceptional architectural designs across a variety of residential, commercial, and interior projects.
