A space that should be open and flexible, able to serve as pantry for the everyday meals,but also for the moments of relaxation or discussion, meeting and training, this new building shouldserve all sorts of events and training.This leads to the new PINC Pavilion, built in a forgotten centennial garden, a romantic memory of the oldQuinta do Mirante.The pavilion is drawn with an open and permeable structure, framed by existing trees.

A structurewithout any coating, inspired by the images of the timeless ruins, such like these, it should merge withthe garden over the time. Inside of the pavilion, by contrast, warm colours of wood based panels andthe red doors fit a welcoming environment. At night, this environment expands to the garden by the
hand of warm light, which overflows to the outside through glass surfaces.
