Background

After graduating and teaching at the renowned AA School of Architecture in London, Misha worked for various commercial practices before establishing his own design studio in 1993 which created a string of private residences, retail establishments and eateries – including Vogue café (at the magazine’s Conde Nast London HQ), and the Fluid Juice bars.

Misha later founded the Notting Hill design showspace, Mission, in 1998, with his partner Yvonne Courtney – voted one of London’s most beautiful spaces by Time Out magazine. High profile fans included Claudia Schiffer, Zaha Hadid and Paloma Picasso. Mission staged exhibitions and installations exploring culture, commerce and design. It later opened an adjoining private bar, Mauve, which won Misha “best bar in London” by the editor of GQ, Dylan Jones.

Misha has also exhibited his work in cultural venues in New York, Moscow, Athens, London and Spain, showcasing concepts in Urban Culture projects in various solo and group design and painting exhibitions.

Having worked for commercial practices in London, Spain and Dubai – designing schemes from private residences to master planning – Misha now splits his time between London and Dubai, having established Mishascape, a multi-disciplinary consultancy, which provides innovative solutions for developers, testing the established corporate mind set.
