A grid of rectangular frames combining the window openings of two floors into one window span creates the illusion of a large-scale increase in the facade - further supporting the monumentality of the overall figurative expression.

Design of Telli bio-boutique, Almaty

The interior design for Telli was inspired by Almaty itself, which is also known as the “City of Apples”. Apple trees are of great importance to locals here and we wanted to work with this concept by making the apple tree a key symbol of the design. The large, wooden oak feature found within the space is representative of an apple tree and is supposed to connect different spaces of the boutique such as the shop with relaxation areas and the gallery. Just like the tree connects these distinct areas, it also becomes an abstraction in itself, as it is made out of individual elements or branches that become one tree, giving the space more of an organic feel. Meanwhile, the locally-sourced wood was used to aesthetically tie all these varying ele... More
