Studio Bazi were tasked with designing this small 376 square foot (35m2) apartment in Moscow, Russia, that had an open floor plan.

As part of the design and as a way to add additional storage in an already small area, the designers decided to raise the bed and place it in a wooden sleep box. This allowed them to create a closet space underneath.

By raising the bed up off the floor, the designers created a set of stairs to reach the bed. These stairs also serve as additional storage with drawers hidden inside them.

In the dark-stained pine sleep box, instead of having a bedside table, there’s a small open shelf built into the box that surrounds the bed.

At the end of the tv wall there’s a small bookshelf tucked away on the side.
