Cobue Winery in Lake Garda, Italy by Manuel Benedikter Architect

This corporate winery is located south Lake Garda, in a countryside of vineyards and olive groves.
The new winery is built in a rape field, just the north façade emerges from the ground.
The roof’s organic shape is cutted by skylights that illuminate the inside yard with the natural lights.
From that dimly lit cellar it leads to the prosecco and barrique ones, they are completely dark. The garage was conceived as crossing place for the farmer who arrives from the countryside with his means.
One of the most important project target we have reached, is to build a big invisible building. The difference height of the work spaces was organized so that the roof appears a natural slope. This slope was covered with a rape yard that will become a didactic path on the wine growing.
A concrete prefabricated system was used to ensure a quick construction and a perfect waterproofing to the ground. The winery was put into operation in the Autumn of 2013; the historical building and the new winery surround the new yard. In the old cellars will take place the future tasting place during the complete restoration of the farmhouse.
