This page is dedicated to people who influenced my professional journey the most, who helped me during my education and afterward, who are the examples for me to follow. Who keep inspiring me everyday.
Architect, laureate of the state prize
First of all I thank my dad, who was an architect and was awarded with the state prize for the work on the design of hotel “Nevsky Palace” (now it is “Corinthia Hotel”) on Nevsky prospect (the main street of St. Petersburg). In my childhood he gave me the love and passion for architecture, and his work inspires me till this day.
Designer, the head of the regional branch of the company "TAXCOM"
I want to thank my Mom, who believes in me and never lets me give up. Having been an excellent interior designer, she taught me how to work with people and make not only beautiful interiors, but spaces convenient for real life.
Architect at Leers Weinzapfel Associates
I was lucky to have Katia Lucic as my Thesis Advisor during my time in the BAC. Katia is an amazing mentor, inspiring role model, and a high level professional. Katia saw my abilities before I could and inspired my professional growth. She is a strong, knowledgeable and very talented architect, who also has very empathetic heart. Our work together grew into a warm friendship.
Director of Sustainability and Resilience at Sasaki
Before I met Tamar, sustainability was just a buzz word for me.
Today sustainability is part of my professional interest, the way I design and how I live my everyday life. Tamar was and still is my guide through this very complicated journey. She inspired me to take new roles, pushed me to explore more and taught me how to strike a balance between optimism and reality.
Founder of Isgenuity
I want to thank Martin for believing in me and giving me a chance to start my career in the USA. Even though my internship in Isgenuity was short, I've learned a lot and I value this experience as my starting point in the new country. Thank you Isgenuity! This is a great company and I wish you all the best!
Сhief architect of the projects
Nicholas Kook – an architect and family friend, who helped me during my studies at the university and influenced my following career. Nicholas showed me the basics of planning and design, and later our discussions about architecture helped me to form my own vision and style. Thanks for help and support!
Architect, owner of architectural bureau "B2"
I thank Felix Byanov – the head and owner of the architectural bureau, who I worked with for four years. The experience of the real work, extensive and varied projects, meeting with the partners – all this valuable experience I owe to the “B2” bureau.
Architects, owners of architectural bureau "Zemtsov, Kondiayn I Partnyory"
ZEMTSOV JURI & KONDIAYN MICHAEL
I also want to thank Michael Kondiayn and Juri Zemtsov, the partners of my father and co-founders of the first private architectural firm in Saint-Petersburg, who kept close connections with our family through all these years.
