Text description provided by the architects.

The building echoes the natural slopes of the surrounding terrain most noticeably in the amphitheater’s incline. Aligning with the rhythm of the vine rows, the colonnade of arches creates perfect visual symmetry with nature. The new visitor center is enclosed in a glass façade facing south, inviting abundant light and leaving only a thin barrier to the surrounding vines.

The space includes a prominent tasting room and a barrique cellar made of wood, concrete, and glass. The archetypal winery shape of is an homage to the contour’s traditionally used in Czech wineries. The tasting room is interconnected with the concave roof of the amphitheater, inhabiting the space under the exposed rib construction.

The perpendicular intersection made of reinforced concrete ribs divides the arched spaces. Each module rises from a vineyard row and runs through the tasting room. The exposed structural elements guide the viewer’s gaze across the grapevines.—Client: Lahofer WineryLocation: Dobsice, Czech RepublicYear: 2015Investment: –Size: LStatus: ongoingTeam: Ondrej Chybik, Michal Kristof, Lenka Vorechovska, Adam Jung, Hanin Al-Gibury, Karolina Holankova, Martin Holy, Vojtech Kouril, Ondrej Mundl, Matej Strba, Zuzana ZathureckaPhotos by alex shoots buildings.
