Since becoming a fully-qualified Interior Designer in 2003 I have been involved in a wide range of projects including commercial offices, residential properties and luxury brand retailers.
Most recently I have worked on interiors for the Tom Ford, Armani Casa and Tsum Fragrance stores at Barvikha Luxury Village, and the Barvikha Hotel & Spa complex designed by Antonio Citterio, located just outside Moscow.
From August 2007 until February 2009 I worked as an Architect in the Store Planning Department of Mercury Group, based at Barvikha Luxury Village. Projects undertaken as part of this role included the development (from concept to completion) of the Armani Casa, Bernardaud, S.T. Dupont, Tom Ford and Tsum Fragrance stores in Barvikha.
I am now based in Edinburgh, having moved to the UK in February 2009. I have a UK work visa (Tier 1 General highly-skilled worker) which allows me to be treated the same as UK employees without the need for applying for a work permit.
