Inspiration is everywhere, all you need to do is just look with your eyes wide open.
Viktoria Yakusha: designer, architect, CEO of Yakusha design studio.
Viktoria is the author of all studio concepts and she personally monitors every project.

— I design and implement the project from 2 to 12 months. During this time I study my clients: their habits, routine, life standards, so everything in the house or at a large facility was thought out.

— I like working with clients when we develop each other. As a rule, these people are self-actualized. They have experience, money and status. Usually it's such people who choose me.

The method of my work is quite strict: I always persuade my client, if I see that results will be bad. I will not take on the "ugly" project for money. Pleasure, the joy of perfection cannot be measured in money.

My purpose is to develop a taste without imposing modern trends that come and go. An architect forms a vision, views and space. And by forming space, you form a worldview, and not only your own one. Our clients understand this.

Sometimes you have to be tough

— At the construction stage, a woman architect always needs to gain credibility from a foreman, because he is afterall «an expert who worked for 20 years at a construction site». And what can a «woman» tell him, even the one who implemented the projects recognized by foreign architects? Yes, at home I am the mother of three children. But when on the site I clearly assign obligations and areas of responsibility.

Laconism, naturalness, functionality

— I like working with natural materials: greenery, wood, wool.
Also I love laconic forms a lot and create laconic interiors. I don't like when the interior is jumbled, and make it "emotionally pure", so that the image is understandable.

Laconism, naturalness, functionality – this is Yakusha design.
And the main source of inspiration is nature.
When at foreign exhibitions they ask me about the peculiarities of Ukrainian design, I show my «FAINA» - a collection of furniture in the style of ethnominimalism. In Italy, in 2015, it was a success at Bologna Design Week. Italians were surprised by the fact that there is a stylish design in Ukraine.
