Spanish Designer Fernando Abellanas Works In A Secret Studio Right Under The Bridge

One designer has come up with a novel response to the urban space shortage in Valencia – slot a pop-up studio into the underside of a traffic bridge.

The tiny moveable workspace is the handiwork of self-taught designer Fernando Abellanas. A hand crank moves its metal base from one side of the bridge to the other along rails, where a shelf, chair, and desk have been bolted to the bridge’s concrete wall.

Abellanas’ secret cabin replicates the childhood experience of hiding under a table or in a closet –

“The feeling kept hidden while still being able to hear and see what happens around us,” he says. “Observing passing cars and trains with no one seeing me gives me great sense of peace.”
