Sunken Studio

If you´ve ever wanted to ditch the commute and work from home but the site of the kitchen table day in day out doesn´t appeal, or you have a hard time separating work and play, you might need a dedicated space where you can go to feel separated from the house and focus on the work at hand. "Sunken Studio" by Brazilian designer Igor Leal, is a concept for a client in Rio de Janeiro that does just that. It is a workspace designed to fit into the garden of a residential home. The goal was to install a small studio on a piece of land in front of a conventional residence without affecting the view from its main façade. With just over 505 sqft, the buried studio incorporates a living roof, an integrated desk area, meeting table, a micro kitchen with storage, bathroom, and even a small courtyard outside with a bench.
