About Vladislav Kostadinov : Architect, born in 1984. He is graduated firstly from UACeG in Sofia, Bulgaria and then from UniNA in Naples, Italy. After several years practice in architecture studios in Sofia at the end of 2010 he returned to Plovdiv, where he founded his own architectural platform - studio 8 ½.

The studio was invited to present its work at Sofia Architecture Week, appeared in numerous festivals, architectural competitions, discussions and exhibitions in Bulgaria and abroad. studio 8 ½ is shortlisted for the Urban Public Prize Award, and in 2013 the studio received the prestigious architectural Architizer A+ Award.
STATEMENT OF ART:
Is architecture art? And if so, what? Yes … architecture is an art. Whether it is frozen music? Or sculpture with function … and maybe a picture in space?
Architecture for me is cinema. The architect is the director of your film. The interior design is our set design. My philosophy is expressed in three words and an exclamation point after them – La dolce vita! We are writers of your dreams. As maestro Federico – design for us is life.
Design in everything and everywhere. Dreams, dreams, reality. Design of the choice of location for your dream house – directing the view from the window in the morning. Design of the building – architecture with soul and feelings.
Design for life.
