‘Carta Nova’ is Latin for new paper. Every job starts with an idea on a piece of paper.
Evelina Vatzeva founded Carta Nova to expand the boundaries of architecture to help individuals and companies to develop their living and working spaces and improve their bottom line.
We believe that design should make your life easier. And it should be fun–while we work with you and later on, when you work, play, enjoy, live in your space.
We employ a holistic design approach to buildings and their interior, taking into account the people who use them and the surrounding context.
We work together with you to come up with an idea that serves as the foundation. Based on this we design your building and its interior, from the facade to the coffee cup. We then make this design reality.
Throughout the process you always have only one contact person. We don’t believe in an artificial split between disciplines. That means the process is smooth without friction loss from too many involved parties.
Born in Bulgaria, trained in Germany and now based in London, Eva gained versatile experiences in the European and UK architectural environment over the past 15 years. Her background spans offices in Germany, Switzerland, and the UK, the magazine DETAIL and some theatre houses such as the Münchner Kammerspiele.
This diversity of background is reflected in the way we work. With a sensible approach to every client’s wishes we offer bespoke solutions, a simple working process and open communication”
