The transparent, colourful, and light pavilion by SelgasCano in Cognac

The Spanish architect duo with their first work in France, the re-design the outdoor space of the Fondation Martell

The Fondation d’Enterprise Martell in Cognac renovates its outdoor space with the first French installation by architect duo SelgasCano, formed by José Selgas and Lucìa Cano. What better opportunity than the restoration of the institution’s interiors to start the project that, over the next year, will lead the foundation to become a true cultural centre for the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region?

The re-think of the 2350 square metres was entrusted to a duo who embodied the values of the foundation and could mark the way for future works. Lightness and eco-sustainability, these are the keywords. SelgasCano decided to build a “transparent pavilion” using as little material as possible, so that the entire structure would be easily disassembled and reused. In fact, at the conclusion of the exhibition in Cognac, the pavilion will live again elsewhere, although some parts will stay at the foundation, not only as archive items, but also for practical purposes.

 

Lightness, the distinctive trait of all the SelgasCano’s production, is due to the use of an extremely carefully chosen high-tech material developed by Onduline, which rests on a metal framework. It is available in one-millimetre-thick undulated sheets made of polyester and glass fibre, which are reminiscent of Japanese rice paper. Despite the indispensable counterweights and the metal supports, walls sway to the wind, like a big sail ready to put out to sea.

The structure features niches and nooks with different sizes that will host summer events like workshops and concerts. Also for this reason the designers chose an open, transparent structure allowing the flow of ideas and people. A space that can be explored and reinvented, giving inputs for play and creativity.
