Commune Apartment in Moscow by Roomdesignburo is a compact living space with a lot of good taste. Inspired by the design of the 1930s movements of Bauhaus and constructivism, the goal was to create a small, 27 sqm space that’s comfortable and uncompromising.
The practical layout allowed to incorporate a full kitchen, a king size bed alongside a hidden desk for work. A difference in room’s heights adds a unique touch of plasticity the uniform space. Associations with the Soviet era might appear controversial yet they carry a great aesthetic value. In the words of the architects: “Once you abstract away from negative aspects of the household of the period then it is possible to purely enjoy the architecture, design, and unique parts of the household of this time. It would be reckless if we didn’t introduce aspects of modern constructivism to this apartment”.
