Living Space


Russian design studio Ruetemple created the Living Space cube design for a multi-functional living room. It balances minimal interiors with also being a multi-use space, thanks to its unique set of furniture that can be stowed away under the central cube.

Broadcasting company NTV launched its reality show “Cottage Solution”. They select homes to renovate, with the help of interior designers.


One of the rules is that homeowners cannot see the project before completion! This unique idea means homeowners can talk about what they like, but not interfere with the design during the process. Leaving it up to the designers to play around and implement their ideas without restriction creates compelling and engaging outcomes.

The idea behind this cube design is to create a space where you can either retire and get away from it all, or conversely, enjoy the company of others. Moreover, using hideaway furniture allows the user a serene sense of minimal calm, absolutely clear of unnecessary items.

A white cube divides the living space into five zones; one of course being the relaxation area inside the cube. It contains a live tree and pebbles, to sit back and relax, meditate, and withdraw from the day to day. The cube is illuminated thanks to the skylight in the above roof window.

With attention to outside of the cube, there is a bar table area along the big window. It’s a place for active pastimes and gives the homeowners space to eat, work, and write.

Thanks to the module furniture pieces stashed under the cube, you can adapt the space easily to different needs. The high open beams and skylights ensure that despite the unusual shape, it is well lit.

The side of the cube furthest from the window has a television, which isolates the television activity for when it will be used, instead of having all furniture pointing at the TV.

The cube is striking in that it suspends from the ceiling, like an oasis in the centre of the space.

The clean and contemporary white living space uses plenty of ingenious storage solutions. It’s always fun to see what the designers will imagine, unencumbered by restrictions.
