It became necessary to create a meeting point, aggregating all who work there, its customers, partners and friends. 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 should serve all sorts of events and training.

This leads to the new PINC Pavilion, built in a forgotten centennial garden, a romantic memory of the old Quinta do Mirante.

The pavilion is drawn with an open and permeable structure, framed by existing trees. A structure without any coating, inspired by the images of the timeless ruins, such like these, it should merge with the garden over the time. Inside of the pavilion, by contrast, warm colours of wood based panels and the 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.
