The office of Selgas Cano, an architecture firm based in Madrid, Spain, continues to be one of the most looked at buildings on the web recently and with good reason.

The seven architects who work at Selgas Cano set out to build an office “under the trees” and they successfully met their goal.

Selgas Cano’s Alicia Cervera said, “We needed a roof that’s as transparent as possible. At the same time, we needed to isolate the desk zone from direct sunlight so we could still work.”

It would appear that the studio is located in the middle of nowhere but it is actually only a 20-minute drive from Madrid and 15 minutes from many shops and restaurants.

Not surprisingly, many of the employees never want to leave because of their inspiring and beautiful office location.

Who could blame them?
