tasked with transforming an uninhabitable attic into a new, usable space, ruetemple fitted out a apartment in moscow. the completed scheme has been divided into two floors featuring ample storage space, functional furniture and a playroom for the client’s children. the resulting space is dictated by the consistent use of timber which has been integrated into the steep ceiling pitch of the attic. along with the stairs, which simultaneously forms storage space, a floor-to-ceiling frame serves as a route and nook for the children which connects the lower level to their own playroom.
