After graduation from the Moscow Architectural Institute, it was clear to her that she has a great opportunity to combine these hobbies. So MMZ Project Architectural Bureau deals with the public interior of various profiles in different cities and countries.
‘I do not have a division of work time or out of work. It’s part of me and my everyday life.
The favorite moment is to get to a new construction site, for example, a concrete some old tired project, and already start at the first meeting to visualize and fill with ideas of what the project can become.’ – said Maria Zhukova.
All the artists need some inspiration to work, and interior designers are artists too. For Maria Zhukova, inspiration comes from travel and exhibitions of any format!
Also, if she had to pick some project around the world that wish was made for her, Maria Zhukova would choose the Salomon R. Guggenheim Museum as an architectural project and the Proper hotel of Los Angeles as an interior design project!
For Maria Zhukova, one of the most important components to perfect chemistry between her and their clients to achieve the best results is, before starting, to discuss the projects and details, they meet, talk about anything, painting the travels of life, and everything becomes immediately clear whether they will work further or not.
