Award-winning business YODEZEEN continues to impress after delivering a brilliant service to its clients. We hear about the core values embedded into the DNA of those in charge of running the company.
Since launching in 2010, YODEZEEN architects has never looked back. The architectural and design studio has continued to deliver and go from strength to strength, while providing an excellent service to its clients.
Artur Sharf and Artem Zverev founded the studio in 2010 intending to develop a conceptual approach in design and architecture.
But while many have been inspired by the efforts of YODEZEEN, Artur and Artem have been inspired by others too.
The people they work with are their main inspiration. They believe youngblood is always delightful as their ideas, energy and vision of the world are inspiring.
The duo also highlighted the importance of remembering that there is always a big team behind big names – and they admire their team.
Furthermore, the company has been recognized for its work to date after scooping a number of awards.
It has won the INTERIOR DESIGN OF THE YEAR – EATING SPACE by LIV Hospitality Design Awards 2021 for Virgin Izakaya Bar, INTERIOR DESIGN by Architecture Masterprize 2020 for State-of-Art Edition project and was the winner of the 10th IIDA Global Excellence Awards 2020: ReFuture clinic and Shadows of Urban Life.
Passions Outside of Work
Away from work there are a number of passions which Artur and Artem enjoy that help them recharge their batteries.
Although work is hugely important to the pair, they acknowledge the need to take a break to ensure they can continue operating at maximum capacity.
They love to travel and believe these journeys should be filled with saturated activities and beautiful places featuring architecture and nature.
In addition, they love spending time with their families. They create homes where people want to live – and they do the same for their families.
Artur and Artem also have core values which they believe are essential. These include continuing to dream and do your best, finding your nerds and making a family, and creating every project from scratch and doing it perfectly.
But alongside their huge levels of success, there have also been many key moments and turning points that they reflect on.
When everything just started and the co-founders of YODEZEEN studio were students, they had a big dream, big ambition and limited opportunities.
“The first two projects that we have implemented: an arbor and an aviary. We were coming to the site every second day, checked the measurements, arranged the bricks, rigged the fibers, visited the Paton factory to finalize the channel, thought through every connection. Then, we realized the essence of perfectionism and decided to make it the main principle of the studio. Perfection in everything, and we do not consent to the less,” said Artur, the co-founder of YODEZEEN.
The company now has over 800 projects worldwide and offices in Kyiv, Moscow, Milan, Miami and Los Angeles.
As an architectural and interior design studio, it is well versed in architecture, interior design (residential & commercial) and custom joinery.
When they started, they had nothing: no contracts, no team, no office. They were just young guys — dreamers who wanted to create an outstanding design.
Eleven years have passed, and they remained as dreamers, but now they have a good base and history behind them. And looking back, they understand that dreams may lead you anywhere.
