Architect Pablo Gagliardo has built a pavilion featuring a thin roof and mirrored-box on a site in Pérez, Argentina

Named La Nave, the pavilion is situated on a property of more than 7 hectares belonging to the RJG Group, a company linked to civil works, architecture and agricultural development, in the city of Pérez.

Designed as a compact, multi-purpose pavilion, it is located in the heart of a small forest around a lake. The pavilion is seeking a minimal intervention in the place. 

The architect adds a mirrored volume emerging from the vegetation to blend into the trees.

The construction is present, but seeks to disappear reflecting the landscape around it and replicating the seasons of the year and the passage of time.

The key feature of the pavilion is its thin slab of reinforced concrete that floats on the mirrored box. The thin roof also protects the volume, generating in turn an expansion gallery that doubles the surface of use.

When the windows of the closed volume open, the interior, which in contrast to the coldness of the mirrors, is entirely covered in wood, connects its entire length with the gallery, forming a single large space.
