Bernardo Rosello’s pavilion revives an old structure

 

Architect Bernardo Rosello introduces the Gastronomic Pavilion in Parque de Mayo, Bahía Blanca, Argentina, marking a harmonious blend of architectural innovation and environmental consciousness. The project breathes new life into an aging structure while prioritizing the complete reversibility of its impact on the landscape. Utilizing prefabricated metal modules, the design tactfully minimizes environmental impact, seamlessly integrating with the natural surroundings. The Pavilion revives the decayed structure, aligning with the city’s initiative to revitalize public spaces. The previous state of disrepair of four gastronomic establishments in the Parque de Mayo prompts Rosello to devise two pivotal design strategies—a comprehensive reassessment of the existing structure and an emphasis on intervention reversibility to preserve the park’s integrity.

The architectural interplay between old and new guides the Pavilion’s design. The structure offers vistas of the stream and pedestrian pathways, fostering a harmonious connection with the verdant landscape. Rosello‘s commitment to the first strategy is evident in the design’s meticulous preservation of the original structure, skillfully incorporating essential services without unnecessary demolition. Facilities like bathrooms, changing rooms, kitchen, cold storage, and more integrate into the pre-existing volume, adorned with a modular array of vertical metal panels, enhancing visual coherence. The second strategy, dedicated to reversibility, sees the application of prefabricated metal modules on-site, meticulously aligning in two parallel strips with dimensions of 3×6 meters. The absence of chemical protection on these metal elements allows the building’s visual language to mirror its interaction with the environment.
