The new Barbados Bathing Establishment of 150 sq. m, built within a 45-day period, is located in Pinamar, in the Province of Buenos Aires.

The project consists of 4 40-foot HC containers and 2 20-foot HC containers that include facilities for the normal operation of the establishment.

In Spanish-speaking countries, a “parador”, is an area used for relaxing. This specific “parador” welcomes approximately 800 tourists during the peak-season.

Project Director: Rina Pomini, Architect

The 40-foot HC containers were used to build a house for campers, public baths, a kiosk sector, and locker rooms for men and women. In the two 20-foot HC containers, on one of the sides, the kitchen and bar section of the bathing establishment was installed and on the other side, the administration office.
