Argentinian studio Alarciaferrer Arquitectos designed a stunning bridge-like pavilion suspended above a valley. Its glazed skin allows unimpeded views of a tranquil lake as well as a luscious eucalyptus forest nearby. Situated in the province of Cordoba, Pabellón-Puente (pavilion bridge) is an elegant communal living room for a holiday development deep in Argentina that seemingly floats in the forest.
The rectilinear building rests on two textured concrete walls above a former road. Thanks to its parallel glass facades, it affords simultaneous views of the forest and the Molinos Lake‘s waters. Naturally lighted and open plan, the building includes a dining area, lounger and kitchen allowing locals to meet and eat together.
The weight of the building is supported by metal Vierendeel trusses, that rests on the concrete walls that give scale to the intervention. The modern interiors have dark wooden panelling illuminated by a natural light, and interior furnishing is complete with classics by Eames. During the night, the Pabellón-Puente glows and that’s when it seems to be floating above the lake’s mirrored waters.
