For­est of­fice.

Of­fice work from a cool green­house? The near­est you might get to that could be if you worked for the ar­chi­tec­tural firm Sel­gasCano Ar­qui­tec­tos in Madrid, Spain. This of­fice is made of a spe­cial tube half-sunk into the ground. The trans­par­ent half of the roof is north­fac­ing and shields workdesks from di­rect sun­light. The translu­cent half al­lows the cool shad­ows of the trees to fall in­side. “I love to share the place with the in­sects and watch their sea­sonal be­hav­iour,” says Ital­ian ar­chi­tect Paolo Tringali, who’s lucky enough to work there.
