a new video takes viewers on a tour of the glass pavilion, OFIS architects’ 20 sq-meter, desert retreat situated in gorafe, spain. following the architects through the building of the project, the video showcases the beauty of the all-glass structure and its surrounding landscape. developed as a research prototype for a comfortable dwelling that can survive amidst a harsh environment, the retreat can be rented for week-long intervals, allowing tourists to fully immerse themselves in the natural beauty of the desert, while maintaining the comforts of home.

ofis architects has developed the pavilion as a response to the local, desert climate conditions. initiated by guardian glass, the project explores the advanced potential of glass as structural support and thermally efficient envelope. the interior unfolds in 3 parts: bedroom, living area and bathroom with a sanitary core in the middle, while all spaces open towards a porch which offers a covered and shaded external platform.
