About

My name is Valentina Rangelova-Velkova and I am the president of ADIDA, Inc.

I have over 30 years of experience and over the last 26 are here in Michigan. My main focus is residential architecture and design. I have a talent for developing unique designs and a passion for challenging projects. Let me show you what I can do and make your dreams a reality.

Background

I was born and schooled in Bulgaria before I came to pursue my dream here in the United States.

Even as a little girl, I dreamed of being an architect and began taking art courses and advanced math courses that would be required for architecture school. I attained my Masters Degree in Architecture from the University of Architecture, Civil Engineering & Geodesy in Sofia, Bulgaria.

What does that mean for you? Well, in Bulgaria you don’t just design a building, you design everything in and around it. Think of Frank Lloyd Wright. I can design everything from the building to the landscaping to the furniture you sit on. I take your vision and can incorporate it into your entire project. If you’re remodeling, that means seamless interface. It will look like it belongs there. On large projects it will make everything work perfectly together, just like a master plan. I can take your ideas and create a vision of perfection. Your satisfaction is my number one goal!

“We decided we wanted to add a pool to our back yard and asked Valentina to design it. She came up with two wonderful schemes which we merged into one perfect fit. We are extremely pleased with the pool, patio and landscaping. It was really a whole backyard makeover, and everything has purpose and looks like it has always been there.”
