Selgas Cano Architecture Office in the Woods of Madrid

Jul 27, 2014

Category: Living

Whether your view at the office is of another cubicle, a wall, or even a panoramic look at your city, there’s no way you’ll ever see a snake slithering by at eye-level. But that’s exactly what the workers at this Madrid office see, as their mini building/tube is located smack dab in the middle of the woods.

Designed by Spanish architects Jose Selgas and Lucia Cano (of Selgas Cano), the structure is half dug into the ground, keeping it cool during the summer. A long window lets natural light in all day, and the window is also attached to a hinge and pulley for occasional ventilation. An insulated fiberglass wall makes up the other half of the building, providing shade. The truly unique setup means workers have the forest floor at eye-level, letting them watch as much insect lovemaking as they can handle.
