Home PageUncategorizedThe Half UnderGround Office, I’d Want To Work Here, Por Favor!

Wouldn’t you want to work in this office, si? In Madrid, Selgas Cano Architects built their work space into┬áthe 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!
