For some people, working remotely is easy, convenient, and comfortable. Others, however, have a much harder time separating work and play — especially with the distractions of home. It’s for this latter group that Igor Leal designed his aptly-named ‘Sunken Studio.’
The project was actually penned for a client in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil as a means of making WFH (Working From Home) feel more like going to the office, with the aim of being a bit more serene and productive at the same time. However, it needed to be managed in a front garden without negatively impacting the facade of the property — hence dropping it below the ground and incorporating a living roof. Just over 505 sqft, the space includes an integrated desk area, meeting table, pantry, bathroom, and even a small courtyard outside with a bench. For those struggling with their new WFH life, this ad-hoc office could be the perfect solution.
