Brutalism Santapaula Yacht Club Nautical Pavilion (Garagem de Barcos do Clube Santapaula)

The pavilion for the Santapaula Yacht Club is planned as a boat garage opening to the beach and providing parking space in the basement’s central void. It is framed by cyclopean concrete walls. The nearly floating, rectangular roof touches the ground only via four triangular pillars at each longitudinal side, resting on unusually designed steel applications. As the roof is constructed from three layers, it forms two vertical gaps as skylights. Beyond, all fronts are open to the outside. Parts of the upper level had been used as a restaurant. The only closed room, located next to the central void, was meant to serve as storage space for motors and sails. (Special thanks to Ruth Verde Zein)
