alexander kudimov and daria butahina of russian practice ruetemple were charged with transforming a property’s garage in moscow into a studio space for the client’s daughter who is studying architecture. with an understanding that an interior directly effects one’s mood, creativity and motivation; the new workspace embodies a warm and comfortable essence.

 

the main focus within the spacious and light room is the single piece of furniture –  constructed completely in wood – to form the grid shelving system, generous work desk, a sofa and a suspended bed. meanwhile, the ceiling was opened up to purposely expose the timber beams and trusses- uniting the space together.

arranged at different heights, formats and sizes, the shelving system provides plenty of space to store the various tools, papers and books needed for architectural study. at the same time, it serves as a partial partition wall, separating the lounge and study area.
