Design shapes the environment around us; it is not only about visual techniques, but also add relevant functions, actualize zoning and etc.

And all of this is possible without any extraordinary remodeling.

How to refresh educational environment?


MIREA is the Moscow Institute of Radio Engineering, Electronics and Automatics.

In 2018, several educational institutions were united into one technological university — RTU MIREA. This university has become a modern educational and research center.

With this unification, it became necessary to renovate the old buildings of the university.

The design aims to create an environment for the young specialists in the field of advanced technologies.


We consider the environment of a leading technological university as a new tool of communication between the university and the student.

The environment becomes a reflection of the modern approach to education and community building.
