A Furniture Designer thought of a very creative yet practical way to build a cozy studio literally placed below an underpass, Fast Company reported. Designer Fernando Abellanas turned the small area beneath a concrete bridge in Valencia, Spain into a functioning workspace.

According to the website, Abellanas, a self-taught designer of furniture created a pop-up workspace located under a bridge along one of the busiest public roads in Valencia. When seen from the images of the studio, the design is partly a floating room, and partly a horizontal elevator.

He used materials such as metals and plywood boxes to complete his creation.

The office space that Abellanas built can be moved from one side of the bridge to the other side, using wheels. As it transfers to the other side of the underpass, the structure forms together with the chairs, shelves, desks and other furnishing pieces positioned on the far side of the bridge, Fast Company explained.

Part of a massive urban problem

In several cities around the world, urban movement gets heavier as years go by. This movement includes road traffic, people walking on streets, office workers walking on subways each day, and cars passing by underpasses. Underpasses are known to support motorists, tourists and other people moving around the busy cities such as Valencia.

To address the problems of unusable spaces, furniture designer Abellanas thought of using these spaces for productive purposes such as turning them into workspaces, Fast Company further noted.

Urban planners and architects worldwide have reportedly thought of many solutions to address such issues. They might want to ask this designer on how he did it.

A secret space

The designer told Fast Company how he was successful in transforming the area into “something surreal and delightful.” Calling it an ultimate hideout, the person using the cozy structure can climb up to it from the bridge’s ramped side, and use a wheelchair-like device to move the structure to the other side.

The other side has the desk and everything the person needs to begin working on that space.

The website added that the project will remain on that spot in Valencia until someone steals the furniture, or authorities issue rulings that it has to be removed. Abellanas makes furniture pieces under a label called Lebrel.

His works are reportedly self-taught and are neither funded not directed by the city officials. His works serve as inspiration for other aspiring designers to create practical and functional projects like this one.
