Spela Videcnik and her OFIS Architects office in Andalusia have built a 20-square-meter pavilion made of special solar control glass. "La casa del desierto" consists of a living area, bedroom and whirlpool sunk into the wooden floor, which offers a unique view of the surrounding desert landscape. The floor-to-ceiling glazed "walls" are moored between the foundation and the roof, each of which is constructed of wooden cassettes, with mirrored panels on the facades to reflect the surroundings. The floor is covered with light gray-bleached, narrow and elongated panels made of larch wood by the Slovenian company Permiz, which lead beyond the room into the open air, thus seamlessly connecting indoors and outdoors.

The glass pavilion was developed as a holiday home that can be booked via Internet platforms.
