Pavilion 4

A new living space

In terms of versatility, performance and comfort, Pavilion 4 is already in line with the goals of the architecturally ambitious modernisation project.

To improve the visitor experience and emphasise the pavilion’s main entrance, a vast porch will extend out from the building, creating a new living space.
