Fernando Abellanas‘ small architectural masterpieces are there, but they can’t be seen. The Spanish plumber who, thanks to his experience, has become an enthusiast and an expert in design, delights in the construction of small inhabitable places made in atypical spaces, above roofs, on the sides of buildings or under bridges, and above all those that cannot be seen. We can call them secret places with the aim of escaping from the city, but without physically leaving.
One of Fernando’s last works is a small secret studio built under a bridge, or rather, to be more precise in the intrados of a highway bridge. With this project, the Spanish designer wants to demonstrate how road infrastructures could be used and how to give them a new life, but also a new use.
This project consists of two parts, a suspended floor made of plywood panels and metal pipes that moves thanks to the rails. In this way the floor moves from one side of the bridge to the other, reaching the studio itself, where the desk, shelves, and chair have been screwed to the wall.
The location of this secret studio is still unknown, both to its fans and to the authorities.
