Status: Completed

The project for the Sea Pavillion is born from the conviction of the recovery of the existing granite arcades that used to host of the spaces used for the military car fleet of the ex Arsenale at La Maddalena, an approach characteristic of a project that is inspired on a principle of dialogue with the context, identity and history of the site. Restructured to host commercial, exhibition and educational spa- ces linked to nautical and touristic activities, the architecture, a open plan arrangement of different programs, is characterized abo- ve all by the 10.000m2 white sail-like roof, suspended 10 meters from the ground and equipped with photovoltaic panels for the pro- duction of energy. 
This device, together with the incorporation of heat exchange sy- stems that use seawater for the heating and cooling of the buildings and of solar panels for the production of hot water, forms part of a strategy that makes the project for the recovery of the ex Arsenale a model of sustainable practice tuned to the preservation of the extraordinary qualities of the Mediterranean landscape and the na- tural biodiversity that distinguish the archipelago of La Maddalena.
