Designer Built A Secret Studio Hidden Beneath An Underpass.
An artist's studio is where they seek the inspiration they need to create. It's a home away from home. It's their quiet space, their sanctuary, their cathedral. It's where they can let loose the swirling thoughts of creativity that occur in their mind. Some people turn a room in their house into a studio. Some people rent a space in a downtown area, in order to soak up the inspiration of the hustle and bustle of city life. And some people find a hidden cove in order to tap into their imagination. Spanish furniture designer, Fernando Abellanas, did just that.
Fernando Abellanas has always found safety in small spaces.
When he was younger, he found shelter in the tiny space underneath his kitchen table. And now that he is older, that hasn't changed.
Abellanas has found the perfect spot!
Hidden underneath an underpass in Valencia, he has created the ultimate place. He built a studio connected to the underpass!
You wouldn't believe how he gets up there!
Abellanas has built his own elevator! Using mechanics, he hand-cranks his way to the the other side.
You'd never believe what happens when the elevator reaches the other side.
The elevator is multi-functional. It opens up, and turns into the floors and walls of his studio.
Abellanas has found the inspiration for his studio in the simplest of places.
He looked at the way people use limited, neglected spaces to create homes. Then he put his own creativity to work.
