Wouldn’t you want to work in this office, si? In Madrid, Selgas Cano Architects built their work space into the earth.
Look at the view from the inside! If tho were a standard office building, you would peer towards the ground and gaze at what’s happening at the forest floor. But here, the gaze is upward, towards sky and trees. What a joy it must be to tune into the weather and changing seasons – things that happen and change slowly.
Building into the ground also uses the mass of earth to buffer against heat and cold. A well-built (I’ll bet they know all about good waterproofing and drainage!) building like this uses less energy to heat and cool!
