Mass-Media About Us
Interview with the head of Design Studio and Olga’s Studio Olga Kondratova was published in August edition of “Beautiful apartments” magazine.
O.K. I want to make a real authentic apartment, similar to the pre-revolutionary one of a professor such as in the novel The Heart of a Dog. It also shouldn’t be a picture of mercantile Moscow, but rather that of imperial St.Petersburg. There are a lot of residences of such kinds and suitable yards… It would be interesting to create a manorial estate of Chekhov’s times with white columns and a terrace. That is why I am studying special literature of the XIX century, dedicated to design of such houses. It seems as if a feeling of nostalgia lives in me…
Most of the works in the portfolio of our design studio are focused on the preservation of family values. In a recent interview, the head of Olga’s Studio Olga Kondratova told ABITANT about how important it is to build a connection of the interiors with the past. One of the main secrets of Studio’s success is the ability to develop competent planning solutions. When working on the design of apartments in old houses, Olga Kondratova always attempts to create the impression of being in a historical environment associated with the past rather than that of a typical trendy remake. According to the designer, the main thing in her work is the ability to express the individuality of the customer. The interior should become something akin to an “architectural portrait” of a particular person. You can find the full text of the interview with Olga Kondratova on our site.
Apartment Interior in a Moscow High-rise
“Квартирный ответ» magazine №6 (95), 2013, published an article devoted to one of the interiors by Olga Kondratova. The text of this publication details the process of creating a design project of an apartment located in a Stalin-era high-rise.
High-rise buildings in downtown Moscow symbolize imperial Stalin’s architecture with its indisputable advantages. However, it’s rather common that the apartment interiors in these houses does not reveal any connection with the extraordinary architectural design of its facades
The owners of such an apartment had to make a harmonious connection between the interior decoration and the exterior. After all, according to the layout, the apartment in the initial state was more like a typical Soviet communal flat than an apartment in the center of Moscow. However, the view of the Moscow River from the window very quickly inspired designers to create an interior masterpiece.
The information on a small flat with a narrow corridor and how it managed to turn into a bright and spacious apartment, you can be found in the interview for “Housing Reply” magazine

This trend persists due to the fact that each of us wants to come back home to be embraced by a cosy, family atmosphere of tranquility.

Proper Design of a Children’s room
Designer Olga Kondratova acts as an expert in the programme “Other News” dedicated to children’s rooms.
Head of Olga’s Studio shared her vision of interior design for children in the interview with TV host.
As a rule, families with two or more children have to create a common room for all the kids. After all, not everyone can afford the luxury of a separate room for each child. The task of adjusting the room for several children requires certain knowledge of area zoning methods. Keep in mind that the design of a children’s room has a direct impact on the formation of a child’s psychology.
The project “Women’s History”, authored by Olga Kondratova, made the cover of the magazine “Ideas for Your Home» №6 (June) 2011
The interior was designed for a mother and her daughter. Thanks to the competent redevelopment and use of classical elements of decor, a small apartment on Taganka turned into an elegant and cozy city flat. After the redecoration, the feeling inadequate space has completely disappeared and the apartment has found its own individual look.
Olga Kondratova knows very well the Taganka district in Moscow, which was actively developed in the Stalin era very well. Despite the fact that the flat is located in a panel building of the 70s, the architect decided to bring into the interior some neo-classical elements of the last century.
