Located behind the conference room and intended for use as a service area for the summit delegations, the Sea Pavilion stands on the site of two pre-existing buildings dating back to the nineteenth century and originally used for vehicle storage and coal bunkers. The original granite arches are preserved and interact with the new structures both outside and inside. Once over the threshold the Pavilion appears as a fluid space of 10,000 square metres, completely open and free of barriers to movement and vision and surmounted by a white metal structure up to 10 metres high that includes a series of photovoltaic panels. The building can also host commercial, exhibition and educational spaces connected to tourist and nautical activities.
