Designer Stuns Everyone In The World By Building A Secret Studio Beneath A Busy Bridge In Valencia

Plumber-turned-furniture designer Fernando Abellanas has built himself a studio that acrophobes wouldn’t want to visit. Abellanas has constructed his workplace under a bridge in Valencia, Spain, and it perfectly blends into the urban setting.

This under-bridge setup has a chair, a desk, and two shelves, providing all the storage space one could ask for in a regular office. To access the micro dwelling, the designer uses a hand crank that transports the base to the furniture, bolted to the bridge’s concrete wall.

Abellanas is keeping the exact location of the studio a secret. “The project is an ephemeral intervention,” he told the Spaces, via Curbed. “[It will remain] until someone finds it and decides to steal the materials, or the authorities remove it.”

What an interesting/unique idea. Remove the crank handle, and your shelter is secure. :D I wonder if he needed a permit for the shelter?

He said it will remain until the authorities remove it. I'm guessing it's not legal.

Considering the traffic noise and smog, it doesn't seems to be a very relaxing office...
