Jesús Torres of García architects, who is Spanish, but who is currently living in Paris, was inspired by Oscar Niemeyer’s approach to building in harmony with nature.
On one side the building is clad with timber slats, whilst on the other it is apparently clad in landscape and sky. Of course this is just the reflection of its surroundings in the mirrored glass, but it was the intention to produce this illusion. It works in part at least, because of the minimal detailing to the glazing.
Inside the pavilion is open and flexible providing the perfect environment for exhibitions and other small scale events.
The building is very powerful in its own modest way.
The apartments rental have fallen across the Spanish coast between 10% and 40% this summer
For reference, the rental housing during the month of August at the beach would always be above 2,000. In this range of prices there are destinations like Punta Umbria in Huelva (2,100 euros), Almuñecar in Granada (2,000 euros), Tarifa in Cadiz (2,000 euros) or Playa de Las Americas or Puerto de la Cruz in Tenerife.
In any case, the choices along the Spanish coast are very different and target different pockets and possibilities. So, in Cadiz is possible to find an apartment of 45 square meters on the line or pay 8,000 € 1,100 € per 160 square meters in San Roque and Malaga, Puerto Banus 3,100 euros to 1,300 euros in Nerja.
