Overview

Here's How

  • The design of the winery building harmonizes with the landscape of terraced vineyards, blending seamlessly into the countryside.
  • It uses timber construction, featuring exposed heavy timber columns, rafters and trusses.
  • The hotel is made of several volumes, most of which are arranged around a courtyard, evoking the intimacy of a monastery cloister.
  • Selection of materials and construction systems was driven by a close study of local architecture, and a desire to use regionally sourced natural materials.
  • Our structural engineers and sustainability experts are collaborating to achieve high levels of sustainability. The facilities are targeting net zero through a combination of geothermal and solar energy.
