25 March 2020

Dear parents, partners and friends,

we present to you the architects who unanimously won a jury vote a few days ago with their architectural solutions for the new Karin Dom building among 174 projects from 48 countries on 5 continents. These are the young and very talented Bilyana Asenova (Bulgaria) and Sasha Ciabatti (Italy) – a team based and working in Berlin, Germany. They won the hearts of Karin Dom’s team with precision solutions, compact interior space and maximum green space.

Bilyana Asenova was born in Sofia in 1989. She studied at New Bulgarian university and then continued her education at DIA – Dessau International Architecture Graduate School, Germany.

Karin Dom’s plans are to make the first dig of the new building this year and to construct it for up to 3 years. Despite the support that Karin Dom has, the funds will not be sufficient to finalize and purchase specialized equipment for the new therapeutic and training center.

Support this project and donate to the purchase of equipment for the new Karin Dom building.

Why support us?

  • To make a big dream come true for children, parents and therapists,
  • To take a big step forward for the whole society,
  • So that children with special needs have a modern and functional therapeutic center,
  • So that we can support more children in Bulgaria.

Because we can and know how to achieve all this!
