This is a project by Cepezed Architects and it is located at Den Helder, Netherlands. There are seven images for Pinas Exposition Pavilion.
An exhibition showcase twenty metres long and thirteen metres deep, offering maximum transparency for a 17th-century shipwreck of the pinas type. Just like Building 51, converted by cepezed into an entertainment centre, this exhibition pavilion is also situated on the former naval shipyard of Willemsoord in Den Helder, which has now been laid out as a nautical amusement park.
The pavilion is situated splendidly between two historical buildings dating from 1825. It is made completely of glass and is artificially illuminated in the evenings so that the ship is visible from all angles day and night. The pavilion is accessible so that the public can admire the vessel from nearby.
The pinas lies in a concrete foundation container filled with gravel on which glass bearing walls without standards have been placed. These walls are propped up by glass supporting ribs which are fixed to the edge of the foundation by means of corner brackets. The vertical seams between the glass façades and the supporting ribs have been sealed. At the bottom and the top, the glass terminates in steel U-profiles that also function as ring beams and thus have a constructive purpose. The roof, consisting of a light metal space frame filled with synthetic aircushions, also rests on the top edge. It can be installed and removed as one unit, so that in the future other objects can also be exhibited in the showcase.
The axes of the pivot doors, which are situated diagonally opposite one another, also function as rainwater drainage systems. The doors have adjustable ventilation grids which, in conjunction with the suction unit on the roof and several heating elements, level out the most extreme temperatures and thus maintain a semi-outdoor climate.
