I'm Arseni Timofejev.
My passion for design has taken me around the world: in New York and Beijing, I worked with Steven Holl Architects and contributed to the creation of the Lewis Centre at Princeton University, the Reid building at the Glasgow School of Art, Maggie's Centre at Bart's London, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, the Bremerton Youth Wellness Campus as well as the Chinpaosan Necropolis Complex in Taiwan. Today, I am based in London as part of team Coffey Architects — working on a number of exciting soon-to-be-built projects.
My first step on this path began with the award of the Estonian Young Scholar Grant. With this, I ventured to the Mac in Glasgow, leaving with a First Class Bachelor with Honours and Diploma in Architecture — as well as a nomination for the RIBA President's Bronze Medal, and a Thesis feature with Super-Architects.
In addition to my studies, I spent over four years researching and presenting the Glasgow School of Art building by C.R.Mackintosh, and was later asked to write a script for the new Reid building tour. As Editor of MacMag39, I wrote for, designed and produced a publication that ended up selling 800 copies worldwide and was featured with the likes of Archdaily, Dezeen and Archinect.
Other than Architecture, my passion is for languages — I speak English, Estonian, Russian, French and Japanese, and am currently practicing Mandarin.
