Second Home Spitalfields
Second Home opens a new 15,000 sq ft rooftop space in its critically-acclaimed building in Spitalfields, East London, designed by Spanish architects SelgasCano.
The new rooftop space, surrounded by pools filled with aquatic plants on every side and featuring over 800 tropical trees and plants, extends the work of Selgascano on the original Spitalfields building, which opened in November 2014.

Studio in the Woods
What is being sought with this studio is quite simple: work under the trees. To do so, we need a roof that is as transparent as possible. Also, at the same time, we need to isolate the desk zone from direct sunlight. Hence the transparent northern part. The part that is covered with a bent sheet of 20mm colourless plexiglass on the north side. The south side, where the desks are, has to be closed in much more, but not completely, so there is double sheet of fibreglass and polyester in its natural colour on the south side, with translucent insulation in the middle. All three form a 110 mm thick sandwich.

selgascano works in Madrid. It is a small atelier and its intention is to remain so. They have never taught at any university and they tend not to give lectures in order to avoid focusing intensely on projects. They centre their work on the construction process investigation, treating it as a continuous listening to the largest possible number of elements involved on it from manufacture to installation.
