A Buried Concrete Structure For A Winery in Girona, Spain by Víctor Rahola Arquitecte

Wednesday, January 31st, 2018

Article source: Víctor Rahola Arquitecte 

The winery program is the result of the need to produce wine and organize a relationship with the existing land house. There are four main spaces for the wine production with three more areas between them. These three are service spaces with all the facilities and storage. The first main space in the right, next to the laboratories and freezers, is the one for all the farming instruments and tools for the vineyards. The second one is for all the vats needed for the “mosto wine” production. The third one is for those vats and bottles that are resting. The last one, and forth, is the area for tastings, enjoyment and storage of the bottles that are ready to be open. The access through a tunnel from the upper side of the house serves as organizer for the circulation of the owners. The three remaining service areas are accessed directly from the vineyards.

Article source: Steven Holl Architects

The site in the center of London is adjacent to the large courtyard of St. Bartholomew’s Hospital. Founded in Smithfield in the 12th century, the hospital is the oldest in London and was founded at the same time as the St. Bartholomew the Great Church in 1123. Rahere founded the church and hospital “for the restoration of poor men.” Layers of history characterize this unique site, connecting deeply to the Medieval culture of London.
