Subterranean Residential Offices

The 'Sunken Studio' by Igor Leal Offers a Dedicated Place to Work

— July 15, 2020 — Art & Design
Working from home quickly became essential for many professionals around the world in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has increased the demand for innovative at-home office designs like the 'Sunken Studio.' Created by Brazil-based designer Igor Leal, the concept office was designed for a client in Rio de Janeiro and is intended to be fitted into the garden of a residential home. This is achieved by going below the ground surface without affecting how the property looks from afar.

The 'Sunken Studio' offers more than 505 square feet, and is accented by a living roof on the exterior along with a meeting table, kitchenette, bathroom and more inside. A small courtyard just outside of the space has a small bench for taking breaks between activities.
Trend Themes
1. Subterranean Home Offices - Innovative office designs that allow workers to have a separate, dedicated space for work while staying at home.
2. Garden-based Offices - Designing offices that can be fitted into the gardens of residential homes, providing workers with a closer connection to nature while working.
3. Living Roofs - Using green roofs to add aesthetic appeal and natural elements to office spaces while also providing environmental benefits such as reducing heat absorption.
Industry Implications
1. Residential Construction - Builders and architects can consider creating customizable home office solutions as part of their residential construction services.
2. Gardening and Landscaping - Developers can collaborate with gardening and landscaping companies to create office designs that are tailored to fit into garden spaces, providing a seamless integration of nature and work.
3. Sustainable Architecture - This trend can provide an opportunity for sustainable architects to incorporate eco-friendly materials and renewable energy sources into the designs, providing a more sustainable approach for home offices.
