Created by Madrid-based architectural firm Enguita & Lasso de la Vega in collaboration with Abalos + Sentkiewicz, this studio built for the painter Albert Oehlen, the main volume and skylights are cut back in a triangular shape, and buried part of it underground.

It accommodates a diaphanous warehouse-like space for an artist’s studio and a semi-basement devoted to storing artworks. A big picture window opens the atelier up to the landscape, while two skylights provide the space with top lighting.
