Well-Concealed: Hidden Pavilion by Penelas Architects
Architect: Penelas Architects (José Luis Esteban Penelas, Dr. Architect, Chair Professor UEM)
Location: Las Rozas, Madrid (ES)
The roof surface above the upper level has been given a slope in order to guarantee enough space for a 200-year-old oak directly near the house. Only three materials determine the effect of the structure: the load-bearing steel construction with its slightly rusty surface, glass and cherry wood, which was used to build the inside. Five high light wells on the roof catch the sunbeams and create a special experience of illumination in the house.
