Madrid-based Virai Arquitectos have realised this Institutional Winery of La Grajera located in the northern Spanish city of Logroño. Composed of several detached buildings, the 2011-completed development ‘seeks an equilibrium between the need to announce the presence of the winery and the desire to merge with the landscape: the volumes follow the deformations of the land and are interrupted, moving towards the forest, remaining close to its border and thus respecting the existing vegetation.’ (more…)

Faustino Winery by Foster+Patners

You could imagine a bald supervillain called Ernst Stavro Blofeld caressing his white Persian cat and telling a smart Roger Moore his plans of conquering eternal power over the universe – no we are not on a futuristic James Bond film set, we are in the new, giant winery of the Spanish label Faustino, recently completed by Foster+Partners.

The Vienna based practice ARCHITECTS COLLECTIVE realised this winery as an extension of two existing buildings in the village of Tadten, a typical village in the Austrian wine region of Burgenland along the border to Hungary.

“Towards the centre of the village is an existing L-shaped residential building with a courtyard and public access for pedestrians. At the other end of the property in the direction of the vineyards is an existing manufacturing and storage facility with service entrance. In the middle of the property is a new building that is limited by two fire walls and that is used on the ground floor as a barrel room, while the first floor houses a tasting room with kitchen, offices and guest rooms. The interior of the first floor has an east and a west terrace with two long glass facades that allow for flowing inside/outside spaces. The roof terrace above overlooks the village and offer a 360 ° view of the surrounding vineyards, the nearby lakes and the foothills of the Alps.”

“The ground floor plan of the new building consists of a rectangle and the first floor of a parallelogram, which is oriented east and west. These two basic forms are connected by a series of spatial diagonals and merged into a flowing overall form, creating a number of diverse spaces, views and topographies which are relating to the sun, the patio, and the surrounding environment. The remaining areas of the parallelogram leave the east and west terraces which are used for events and wine presentations. The interior space can be used as a single large space or individual rooms through a large sliding wall and four large doors. In the middle of this space is a free standing pentagon-shaped construction with wooden panels that includes bath rooms and kitchen. The building itself construction consists of concrete and masonry, and wood construction for ceilings and walls.”
