The Wine Cellar House occupies a complementary space in the farm where it is inserted and, as such, was conceived as a place that takes its spatial concept to the limit.
The programmatic (in)definition allowed us to work an abstract and open-space that both receives a dinner, and quickly can become a domesticated space to accommodate visitors.
The distance to the main house and the consequent proximity to a more virgin nature context, led us to explore the concept of pavilion in the forest, which is reflected in the spatial organization, but also in the materiality adopted.
A set of four thick walls defines the living space and determines the visual frames on the surrounding landscape, which point in the direction of the four cardinal points. The massive volumes, drawn by vertical wooden rulers, are the containers of the program – bedroom, living room, kitchen and bathroom -, which subtly hides behind the stereotype that defines the interior and exterior façades, in the same material. The ceiling and the floor, in a dark screed, help to frame the surrounding nature, emphasizing its presence in the interior space.
