054: Creating and Winning Beautiful Commercial Work with Aleksandrina Rizova

This week I am speaking with Aleksandrina Rizova of Aleksa Studio.

Prior to establishing ALEKSA studio in 2015, Aleksa worked at Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners across the commercial, residential and cultural sectors. She was primarily involved in the design and on-site coordination of the Leadenhall Building. Aleksa was awarded the Komfort award for best interior space at the RIBA President’s Medals Student Awards in 2008.

In this interview Aleksandrina discusses how she won those early residential projects and how she has made the move into commercial work, largely in the retail sector and is able to produce work that satisfies both her visual and design agendas with client commercial requirements. She also speaks about a number of self generated projects and products that utilise her expertise with digital tools and fabrication.
