Interview with Alia Bengana a Paris-based architect

We’re going to keep this intro short and short so you can get straight to reading this interview with Alia Bengana, an architect from Paris.Born in Algiers and educated in Paris, it’s often said that her talent comes from their family.

Please share your background with us where are you from?

I was born in Algeria and moved to Paris when I was fifteen. I finished high school in Paris and then started my architecture studies.Moving from Algeria was a great change in my teens, but French was already my mother tongue so I never felt I had to adapt to another culture since French language was already part of my culture. I really started to feel comfortable in Paris at architecture school, surrounded by very open minded students and teachers. During my studies I spent one year in Rome and had my first work in Barcelona. Today I have both citizenships,French and Algerian, and I really feel European with a strong North African heritage.

How did you get into this field? When did you know you wanted to be an architect?

I had the chance to grow up in a house designed by a very talented French architect, Fernand Pouillon, who was working in Algeria in the 70’s. He was a friend of my parents, and helped them to turn an old north African traditional farm they had inherited into a contemporary house, keeping at the same time the spirit of the old construction. Furthermore my parents were great art and architecture lovers,even though they were both lawyers. So I believe I was sensitive to that field since I was a child, and when I had to choose a university after high school I didn’t hesitate.

We’re going to keep this intro short and sweet so you can get straight to reading this interview with Alina Dobre  from care?Cutare, a creative textile-interior designer from Romania.

What was your first step into the interior design ?

Beside raising 7 children, my grandmother also weaved carpets; my mother worked in a knitting factory and to add some extra money to the monthly  income , she also made embroidery for bed sheets. When we were kids , my brother made espadrilles with an „Illeana „ sewing machine, that i have also used to sew my first clothing items, back when i was a teenager. At kindergarten i was talented at drawings and in school I liked the manual work classes. After high school I ran to France , where I studied visual communication and later on, fashion in London.

I came back in Romania due to an overflow of information and the desire to pass on all that i had learned. I didn’t know exactly what I was going to do, but I always knew that I want to do something personal, as unique as possible and not repeated.  I wanted to treat objects like individuals in their uniqueness, to tell the stories I  imagine , but most of all, back in Bucharest,  I saw the need of color and joy in peoples houses. So I decided that I wouldn’t dress people, i will dress up houses.

Exclusive Interview With Martha Angus From San Francisco

Few days ago we have talked with an interior designers Martha Angus from San Francisco  who shares here tips for refreshing your home’s look.She belives that bright throws are one of the easiest ways to spruce up any room and create richness through layering. And they keep you warm!

Tell us about the moment when you decided to follow a career in the field of interior design.

I always felt like an artist growing up. I moved around constantly for my father’s career, so the whole idea of ‘home’, a place where you feel comfortable and can settle into, is the most important thing in the world to me. When I was a child, I absolutely fell in love with color, especially coloring books. I became so passionate about art and color, I thought “Oh, wow!” this is all I ever want to do, which led me to eventually study painting at Carnegie Mellon and the Ecole des Beaux Arts de Paris.

When I came out of college the options for a female artist were quite limited yet art has always been a driving force in my career. As a young artist fresh out of school, I got my start as a fashion illustrator and textile designer in New York City. That eventually led to store design and high-end residential design. My work and interests are always evolving but I never abandoned my first love –painting and contemporary art. To this day, art is the most important feature in my designs. It’s usually the first thing I discuss when starting a new project.

Tell us about the moment when you decided to follow a career in the field of interior design.

Getting involved in an interior design career was a happy accident. I spent over a decade in the corporate world as a dept store buyer and then later in sales and marketing management.  After I had children, I was looking for something different.  I had the opportunity to start a home decor business which eventually led to offering furniture along with the accessories.  With the success of those lines, customers starting asking where to put these items.  I had a business degree and did not have a formal interior design background I felt was necessary to be a credible design resource.  That is what prompted me to study interior design and eventually add those services to my business.
