Welcome to the 23rd episode where we will discuss about the complex process of interior design through the perspective of a young talented architect recently settled down in Serbia. Our guest today is Kristina Koivistoinen Khatlamdziian, a Armenian/Finish architect, educated and grown up in Russia, and the founder of Freya Architects. Kristina opened her studio in Belgrade after moving from Moscow, where she worked on numerous S/M/L projects.

Known for their unique blend of Scandinavian minimalism, Freya pays close attention to every detail, working hands-on with builders to create distinct and comfy spaces. Kristina emphasises emotion and empathy in her approach, making sure each project resonates with the people who use the space every day. As architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe said, „God is in Detail,“ a philosophy Freya fully embraces.
