The global architectural services market is worth over 360 billion dollars, making this field a highly competitive and demanding sector to establish a business. Artur Sharf and Artem Zverev, two Ukrainians who established their studio YODEZEEN in 2010, would agree. However, the pair were passionate about putting Ukrainian talent on the map in this field, which led them to open YODEZEEN.

Now in their early 30s, Artem and Arthur are proud of their courage to follow an entrepreneurial path. The opening of their offices in Miami and Los Angeles, USA were the first steps in YODEZEEN's international expansion that would see the talented team grow the company and its reputation. Yodezeen is currently building a new 6,500-square-foot office in Miami, signaling the studio's rapid expansion of both its team and influence in the region.

The Warsaw office opening in 2022 was critical for allowing team members to support their families who had lost their jobs as a result of the war in Ukraine. It was also instrumental in pushing YODEZEEN to keep working through stressful times. This perseverance has resulted in countless accolades that truly represent the team's expertise and commitment to producing striking creations.

Currently, YODEZEEN is known for residential, commercial, and hospitality projects. The company has offices worldwide in cities like Kyiv, Warsaw, Milan, Miami, Los Angeles, and Dubai. YODEZEEN's team has grown to over 160, allowing them to swiftly complete projects that demonstrate the company's flexibility and distinct aesthetics. YODEZEEN will be opening another office in London early next year, which will showcase custom products under the YDF brand and be a hub for industry leaders working on the most luxurious projects. The new office and showroom will be on Brompton Road in London's famous design district and will be around 20,000 square feet in size.

"By uniting more than 100 leading brands in furnishing, lighting, bathroom solutions, and textiles under the YDF brand, we have created the one and only lifestyle destination for professionals in the architecture and interior design sphere as well as their clients," says Artur Sharf, "Therefore, we have created an interior design store where clients can experience interior design as both a process and a result."

YODEZEEN deeply respects British traditions and the other architectural styles that were common in the different countries we worked in. We believe that our style will transform once again as we play with innovation and modern aesthetics."

In every project they take on, YODEZEEN brings unmatched international expertise, local capability, and a deep understanding of high-end design.
