My name is Ashot Karapetian,
I am the founder of KRPTN.

I have assembled a team of talented architects, industrial and graphic designers who can solve a wide range of architectural problems - street landscaping, design of expositions and restaurants, architectural concepts, design of levels in meta-villages, design of private houses and much more.

We have been working across the galaxy since 2014. Our mission is to create humanistically directed architecture for people, where everyone can feel comfortable and inspired.

Each project is a unique story that is written together with our colleagues and clients - from concept to details.

Write to us - we will offer a functional and beautiful architectural solution.

Design Guide to Yekaterinburg: Public Spaces, Architecture, and Galleries
Yekaterinburg is the real capital of constructivism, and although there are more buildings of this style in Tel Aviv, they are mostly small private buildings, while the Urals buildings are more varied in nature. There are factories-kitchens, and palaces of culture and sports, and kindergartens, and baths, and hospitals, and residential complexes for various Communist estates. But the symbol (now, even without the inherent functionality) of constructivism in the Urals (let it be said, in the world as well), is the White Tower. It is what most Urals designers and architects would call a source of inspiration.
