La Grajera in Logroño, Spain by Virai Arquitectos

Sunday, February 5th, 2012

Article source: Virai Arquitectos

In the estate of La Grajera, west of the city of Logroño and only a few yards from the Camino de Santiago, we find the Institutional Winery of La Grajera.

The Project seeks an equilibrium between the need to announce the presence of the winery and the desire to merge with the landscape: the volumes follow the deformations of the land and are interrupted, moving towards the forest, remaining close to its border and thus respecting the existing vegetation.

We took this as a perfect link to the subject concrete, providing us with the necessarities of our infrastructure. This ranges from bridges to houses to simple furniture.

Saturday, September 17th, 2011

Article source: Studio Kalamar

On its site in the outskirts of Ljubljana, Dinos company has established a recycling program which includes shredding and sorting of scrap metal. The shredder’s noise emissions called for an acoustic protective cover that was envisioned as a light steel construction overlaid with acoustic panels. Visually, the volume’s impact is minimized with a matte gray sheath enveloping three facades, while the main elevation is composed of horizontal elements, paraphrasing stacks of crushed cars in varying colors.

Füleky Winery in Tokaj, Hungary by Építész Stúdió

Friday, June 10th, 2011

Article source: Építész Stúdió

In the historical center of the small Tokaj village, on a plot directly adjacent to a 15th century church, our task entailed the design of a winery that is to produce quality Tokaj wines. The basic concept underlying the building’s design was to build a new winery by making use of all valuable elements of the greatly remodeled, original stone building. Thus, the existing, traditionally laid stone walls had been integrated into the new building so as to result in a house that now displays these original elements. It has turned out only upon uncovering of the small house, i.e. after removal of layers of plaster, that beautiful stone walls had been hidden there for several hundred years. As a modern, dry-laid structure, the new facades of the building as well as its roof have been made of yellow-grey stone originating from nearby Mád. The stone panels on the roof are laid in a manner so as to recall the original tile-covered house, yet with the roof planes already implying a new and progressive mass.
