Hidden Pavilion in Madrid

In central Spain, Penelas Architects has designed a small dwelling as a secluded place for meditation. assembled on the outskirts of Madrid, the ‘Hidden Pavilion’ is situated amid a forest and interacts directly with the surrounding trees. the entire property has been built using three materials: rusted steel for the structural frame, glass for its façades, and cherry-tree wood for the interiors.

Fully embedded within the forest, Penelas Architects has sited the home to engage with the neighboring landscape. Suspended over a small waterfall, the pavilion lets trees pass through its terraces, and cantilevers above voids that have been strategically positioned to allow for future growth. The upper level is inclined to provide room for a 200 year-old oak tree, while lightwells have been deliberately raised in order to illuminate the scheme’s interior.
