In this interview with Ana, architect and founder of Gjyms’Hana Atelié, we bring you the creation history of this new venture that brings for the first time in Albania, a holistic service of architectural products in terms of interior and exterior design. One particular innovation this venture encourages the engagement of young architects in implementing interior design while they are still in school, thereby facilitating their way to the job market, and also enhancing the professionalism among the younger generation of architects.
Why was Atelie Gjyms’Hana created?
After two years of experience in Pristina as a manager and architect of a showroom, I decided that the next step in my career would be a personal venture. The long experience in this field made me familiar with market failures. At a pace as fast as it is today, we need businesses that give us solutions while cutting down on time. This is what Gjyms’Hana does. Gathering everything that has to do with interior design, in one place. As our slogan says, your Nest from A to Z.
Is it a showroom or design studio?
It is a showroom that offers (in the first 6 months, as a promo, free of charge) the service of an architect. We can say it is a mix of both, so it brings together architects, or as I call them, Space Doctors, with the product, and gives a complete, well-supervised final result.
What is special about Gjyms’Hana?
Atelié Gjyms’Hana is a business of faith and spirit.
It offers a holistic service in terms of interior and exterior design.Through the symbiosis of domestic product and foreign import, it offers architectural services and products, enabling all the requirements for those who are looking for architectural solutions.
One particular innovation this venture brings is the engagement of young architects in implementing interior design while still in the school benches, thereby facilitating the face of the job market, and also enhancing the professionalism among the younger generation of architects.
It reduces time for architects and clients by providing optimal solutions and gives many opportunities for new architects.
How do you find your collaboraters and which is the process of creating products?
I have chosen to collaborate with the companies I have worked with, precisely because of the credibility of the quality of their products.
In terms of products, they are by world reference, or designed by me. The Albanian market and production elites are not unintentionally chosen, but the opportunity for imported goods, mainly Italian, remains open.
Where can clients and architects find you?
The Atelie has a very convenient location for everyone. It is located in the center of Tirana, opposite the former Exhibition, near the fruit and vegetable market, where you can see the facade of Gjyms’Hana.
How do you see the future of Gjyms’Hana Atelie?
Following this branch in the center Tirana, with the increase of Gjyms’Hana, we are planning the expansion of Gjyms’Hana in the second capital, Pristina.
