Utilizing under-stair storage and other clever built-ins, Studio Bazi has designed a compact but efficient apartment in a historic building in Moscow, Russia, for a single man. Measuring just 33 square meters, or about 355 square feet, the studio flat’s main living space is configured on a single floor, with the entrance and toilet located on a small landing above a staircase.

The entryway comprises a tiny foyer, off of which is a water closet. A set of stairs leads downstairs to the main floor, where a small lounge with bookcase is set on one end, and the bedroom area on the opposite end of the floor. In between is a bank of oak cabinets that conceal a kitchenette, storage, a washing machine, pull-out table, and a curtain that separates the bedroom from the living area. A thin groove along the ceiling here forms a subtle track for the curtain.

Underneath the white-fronted staircase is a set of pull-out drawers and a wardrobe for clothes and shoes. A shower and sink are also found underneath the stairs behind a glass door. A porthole allows sunlight to enter the shower from the bedroom’s window, while pale hardwood floors, white walls, and high ceilings create a feeling of airiness and brightness. Have a look.
