Aedes studio is an architectural studio based in Sofia. Founded in 2004 by Plamen Bratkov and Rositsa Bratkova, the team consists of highly skilled architects with various interests. The studio’s portfolio is mainly comprised of residential buildings and offices. The projects’ sizes range from several thousand sq. m to single family houses including interior design. Since 2008, Aedes studio has taken part in exhibitions in Sofia, Vienna, Bern, Bucharest, and at the Venice Biennale. Aedes studio has won several national design awards, as well as a Silver A Design in Como 2015. In 2009 the Jaclyn Residential Building became a part of Mies  van der Rohe’s selection and traveling exhibition.

Due to their contextuality and qualitative design most of the built projects of Aedes studio have turned into landmarks.​ Most of the projects are for residential and office buildings. A main concern in all of them is the interaction between a building and its surroundings. Each proposal tells a story derived from its program and place. Many of them deal with different scales, exploring ways to decrease a volume inserted into narrow space. A special attention is paid to the intermediate areas separating in and out as well as connecting the building to its environment.
