Cholakov-Gongalov Architects, founded in 2012 by m. arch. Viktor Cholakov and land. arch. Dimitar Gongalov, is a boutique architectural and interior design studio operating in Sofia, Bulgaria. In the course of time, we created strong conceptions of workflow, communication with clients and attitude as to the entire work process, as well as to the final product. Thanks to those conceptions, which unite our team as well, we work successfully with clients from all over the world: USA, UK, Germany, Bahrein, Libya, Bulgaria, etc. Standing on our 10 years of experience in the sphere of architecture and design, moving through clear communication with our clients, aiming to establish their exact and detailed requirements, and reaching the actual work process, our goal is always to create high-quality end product.

Mission: to create architecture and interior design with highest quality and in the same time to satisfy the requirements of our clients and to transfer their visions in the final product.

Phylosophy: architecture and design are arts of logics and in contrast to the art in pure form, they cannot exist only for themselves. For every single element in our work – from the big picture to the smallest detail – there is a reason, meaning and logic, prompted by the individual characteristics of the site, the requirements of the client and the proffessional capabilities of our team as well.
