Modernistic style, clean shapes, and uncompromised quality are at the core of Blueprint Architects’ work

Architects Stoyan Mirlev and Iliya Hristov

Established in 2016, the company has carried out a great number of projects of various scales, which combine functionality with stylish appearance. Whether it is about a residential building, office space, or interior, the company controls every step in the process of the projects’ execution, becoming a trusted partner for its clients. Architects Stoyan Mirlev and Iliya Hristov tell more about the key role of realistic planning, honest approach, and their mission to walk the whole path together with clients.

What is the basic philosophy of your company?

Our basic philosophy is to design beautiful high-quality buildings and interiors. We work on any scale. We have a rational and realistic approach to every project, taking into account the requirements and priorities of our clients, the functionality and aesthetics they want to obtain. We aim at being partners to our clients, leading them in the construction and execution process, because every project has its particularities. Usually, clients’ competencies are in totally different areas and they need to trust us so we can get to the end together.

What is the leading factor in that partnership with clients?

Openness, honesty, and trust, which we aim to build from the first day of communication. We are always honest and share our professional opinion as it is. We discuss the pros and cons of the available options and make clear the reasons for our assessment. We take to heart every project we start to work on. We stay together with our clients from the beginning till the end, to ensure they can count on us and the project will be executed and finalised as they saw it on paper.

How do you combine quality, aesthetics, and functionality?

We always start with functionality. After all, buildings should fulfill their purpose. Then we go on with aesthetics to achieve the desired vision that a client wants to obtain. We offer comprehensive solutions – first-class systems and materials, which we choose according to the preferences and the budget of the client. We never compromise on quality. Everything should be well thought out and technically sound sо that there are no problems in future.

At the very start, we draw the frame of the project, within which we will work – desired functionality and vision, budgets, deadlines, etc. Even at this stage, if we find something unrealistic– too short an execution period or too low a budget, thanks to our experience we have the option to make an informed choice of what can be changed and how to update the details.

What are the advantages of the BIM technology that you use in your projects?

The abbreviation "BIM" stands for "Building information model". It allows us to create the building in a virtual 3D environment as it will be constructed in reality. It is not just modeling, however, because here the model includes all technical details of the building. In the architectural part, these would be materials, coatings, windows, doors. Below them, the model contains all available data, also in a 3D environment, for all building systems – heating, ventilation, air conditioning, plumbing, electrical systems, even the particular products and items that will be used. When the project is ready, we can see the building as it will be actually constructed. This approach provides us with high flexibility during the actual construction of the buildings and lets us synchronise and update changes, which have to be made. Using the BIM technology we have much more detailed and coordinated projects, which leads to more realistic budgeting, time schedule, and fewer mistakes in the process of execution.

Worldwide practice shows that compared to conventional design, BIM saves between 20 and 40% of the construction cost of buildings. One of the main advantages of the BIM technology is that it can solve problems before they actually occur on site.

What were your latest projects?

We have just finished a residential building where we were responsible for the entire process of design, construction, and interior building. The interesting thing about this project is the revolutionary idea of a home discotheque, which made us implement innovative acoustic and high-tech solutions.

We also designed the whole interior of Schneider Electric’s new office. In partnership with them, we integrated their technological office management systems into a personalised interior project.

We are glad to be the authors of an urban skate park design for a second time – now in the town of Radnevo. Inspired by the challenging urban environment, with its particular shapes and obstacles, it is a dream come true for the kids and youngsters in town.

Blueprint Architects: Рационално, реалистично, надеждно

Модернистичният стил, изчистените форми и безкомпромисното качество са в основата на работата на Blueprint Architects. Създадено през 2016 г., днес студиото може да се похвали с редица завършени проекти от всякакъв мащаб, съчетаващи стилната визия с функционалността. Независимо дали става въпрос за жилищна сграда, офис пространство или интериор, компанията контролира всяка стъпка от процеса по осъществяване на проекта и се превръща в доверен партньор на своите клиенти. Архитектите Стоян Мирлев и Илия Христов разказват за ключовата роля на реалистичното планиране, откровения подход и мисията да извървиш целия път заедно с клиента. 

Каква е основната философия на Вашата компания?

Основната ни философия е да проектираме качествени и красиви сгради и интериори. Работим във всякакъв мащаб. Подхождаме рационално и реалистично към всеки проект, съобразно изискванията на клиентите, техните приоритети, функционалността или естетиката, която искат да получат. Наша цел е да сме в партньорство с клиентите, да ги водим и съпътстваме в строителството и изпълнението, защото всеки проект си има своите специфики. Компетентността на клиентите обикновено е в съвсем други сфери и те трябва да ни се доверят, за да можем да стигнем до края заедно.

Кое е водещото в това партньорство с клиента? 

Откровеността, честността и доверието, което се стремим да постигнем от първия ден на комуникация. Още на ниво оферта информираме клиентите за всичко, за да са наясно колко ще струва нашия труд, като не допускаме възможността след време да изникват допълнителни разходи. Винаги сме честни и споделяме нашето професионално мнение такова, каквото е. Обсъждаме плюсовете и минусите на различните варианти и мотивираме оценката си. Приемаме присърце всеки проект, с който се захванем. Ние сме с клиентите от началото до края, за да им осигурим спокойствието, че могат да разчитат на нас и че проектът ще се реализира така както са го видели на хартия. 

Как съчетавате качеството с естетиката и функционалността? 

Винаги започваме от функционалността. В крайна сметка сградите трябва да изпълняват своето предназначение. След това навлизаме в естетиката, за да стигнем до желаната визия, която клиентът иска да получи. Предлагаме цялостни решения – системи и материали от висок клас, които избираме според предпочитанията и бюджета на клиента. Никога не правим компромис с качеството. Всичко трябва да е осмислено и технически издържано, за да няма проблеми в дългосрочен план. 

Цялата картина се подрежда в началото на проекта, бюджет, срокове и т.н. Ако има нещо нереалистично – прекалено дълъг срок, прекалено висок бюджет, благодарение на опита, който сме натрупали, имаме възможност да направим информиран избор кое да променим и как да актуализираме детайлите.

В изготвянето на проектите използвате BIM технология, какви са нейните предимства?

Съкращението BIM означава Building information model или информационен сграден модел. Чрез него изграждаме сградата във виртуална 3D среда такава, каквато ще бъде в живия живот. Но това не е просто моделиране, защото в модела са заложени всички характеристики на сградата. В частта архитектура това са финишите, покритията, материалите, прозорците, вратите. Моделът съдържа цялата налична информация за всички сградни системи - отопление, вентилация, климатизация, ВиК, електросистеми и конкретните изделия, които ще бъдат вградени като отоплителни и охлаждащи тела и т.н. Когато проектът е завършен в цялост, имаме сградата такава, каквато ще бъде построена. С BIM технологията се допуска много по-малка грешка при количествени сметки, ценообразуване и съставяне на бюджети. Световната практика показва, че спрямо конвенционалното проектиране, BIM спестява между 20% и 40% от грешките по време на строителството, a това е измеримо в пари. Едно от основните предимства на BIM технологията е, че с нея можем да решим проблемите, преди реално да са се появили на обекта. 

По какви проекти работихте напоследък? 

Наскоро завършихме жилищна сграда, където отговаряхме за целия процес на проектиране, строителство и изпълнение на интериор - от първата линия до слагането на завесите. Бяхме проектанти и на интериора на новия офис на Schneider Electric, които направиха релокация в рамките на Бизнес парка и отново бяхме с тях по време на целия процес.
