Further Shortlist Success: OKNA Interiors

OKNA Interiors have achieved further shortlist success in the International Design and Architecture Awards with their Nadar Hall project entering the Gulf States – Living Space category.


Project Name: Nader Hall

Location: Busaiteen, Bahrain

Interior Designer: Anastasia Kupchenko & Oksana Kadatskaya

Architect: Najeeb Moosa

Date Delivered: November 2011

The project is a good example of contemporary living in an Arabian home.










Nader hall was OKNA Interiors first major project, it took almost two years to complete the entire villa. The client brief requestioned the creation of two spaces with ample seating areas. In the heart of the house is a Sala room, an open space where people first enter the property and where the first impression of the house is made.


The second room the Majilis – a closed room, where females are able to enjoy their privacy during big family gatherings.

The style was defined from the offset: it had to be contemporary, simple, with maximum seating areas but movement around the rooms should still be comfortable.


Warm sand colors with just a touch of colour in the sofa cushions was the chosen scheme for the Sala room and cool shades of grey for the Majilis room with just a splash of bright blue with silver.


The space is not overloaded with objects but it still has a lovely feeling of warmth and comfort. The combination of the different shades of sand colours in one room and grey colors in another room applied on a large objects is how the warm atmosphere was developed.


The designers feel the awards “gives us a great opportunity to introduce ourselves to a new world and a chance to meet other designers and architects”.
