Retreat pavilion in Galicia

Exterior Gendai Cladding

Outes (A Coruña), Spain

Project Overview

Located at the foot of the Serra de Outes in Galicia, Northwest Spain, this pavilion stands as a testament to the harmonious blend of modern architecture with traditional rural aesthetics. Designed by 2es+ architects, this one-storey pavilion serves as a private family retreat pavilion, offering a sanctuary for a couple and their two children to disconnect and enjoy the serene beauty of nature during their holidays.

The Viro Pavilion is strategically situated on the same rural plot as the grandparents’ house, seamlessly integrating into the landscape filled with traditional buildings and granaries. The architects’ vision was to create a minimalist yet functional space that respects and complements its surroundings. The flat roof design, topped with a lush garden, ensures that the pavilion blends effortlessly with the verdant environment.

One of the standout features of this architectural marvel is its cladding, made possible by Nakamoto Forestry’s Gendai. The use of Nakamoto Forestry Gendai not only provides a durable and aesthetically pleasing finish but also pays homage to traditional Japanese wood preservation techniques. This choice of material enhances the pavilion’s natural feel, ensuring it stands out as a contemporary structure while still being deeply rooted in tradition.

The pavilion’s open-plan design fosters a sense of spaciousness and connectivity with the outdoors. Large glass windows and sliding doors create a seamless transition between the interior and the garden, allowing the family to immerse themselves in the picturesque surroundings. The use of natural light is maximized, creating a bright and inviting living space.
