A volume, a network of shadow, so it can be defined the pavilion at Park Aventura in Almada, Portugal.
The wooden pavilion mysteriously stands in openness of a green grass and bark flakes, together with scattered pine trees whose thin appearance challenges its horizontality. Soft light, suspended time, shadow that create architecture, so pavilion reveal itself to the visitor of the park, who while walking can’t avoid seeing the semi-transparent structure, where full is void, where inside is outside.

Flexible, foldable, unfoldable. One central space, freestanding and multifunctional, able to host small events, shows and conferences, equipped with a structure defined by doors, designed as a support for exhibitions and projections.

Completely opaque internal elements put the focus on the functionality of reception the room, the sanitation and the technical areas for the maintenance of the park. Among the flowing volumes, among the light reflections that are seen, among the projected shadows that are hiding.

One unique material: a wood, outside rough, not treated, rugged, plain, full. It is transformed into the surface more and more defined and refined. Walls of wood chips characterize an external volumes – OSB.
