Are you one of those people who gets bored with the same old room layout? If so, you might get a kick out of this design from Russia. A transformable interior for a brother and a sister, who are both students, occupies a two-storey room in their home. A play-and-study area designed by Ruetemple, the room features a bookshelf-staircase and adaptable seating structures on wheels. These assume numerous configurations within the space in order to adjust to the siblings’ daily routines and moods.
This engaging space can be used for studying, sleeping and can become a great playground for when the kids bring their friends over. Free from typical furniture, the 33-square-meter space is meant to adjust to different types of recreation and can be organized in several ways. The transformable cube can be arranged as a trio of sofas, an elongated seating structure or a bed. Thanks to the furniture’s modular configuration, the piece can transform a single room into a multi-purpose space.
The other end of the room features fixed furniture that comprises a desk, cupboards, shelves and a staircase. Thanks to the use of one single material, this part of the room looks like it’s made from one piece of furniture. The generous amount of storage spaces was provided by letting cabinets climb up the full height of the walls and inserting shelves beneath the stairs.
A feeling of permeability the architects aimed to establish is enhanced by great views of the surroundings from the upper level and different lighting systems for different parts of the space.
