This Guest Pavilion is a Cuboid Placed in the Middle of the Forest

Project: Guest Pavilion
Location: Sa Tuna, Spain
Year 2017

The assignment consisted in the construction of a guest pavilion as an extension of the main house. Our first thought was to create a shape clear and simple, a cuboid placed in the middle of the forest, changing as less as possible the surrounding characteristics, as if it had always been there.

The pavilion is defined by an U materialized in corten steel with a slat facade that creates a retreat inside, a place to be and contemplate. The entrance is in the ground floor. It’s like a kind sculptural void inside the ground, you enter on it, then you upstair through it to the pavilion.

The inside is understood as one space: a living- bedroom space and in one corner there’s the bathroom. The east, south and west façade are totally glazed, with a solar protection made of corten steel sliding lattice. The north façade has more controlled openings that illuminate the bathroom and the entrance staircase.
