The spatial and formal balancing of the extensive production processes of the winery and the small-scale city structure is the focus of the concept. The winery is taken seriously as a production site without opposing the historically grown ensemble or dissecting the processes in favor of a smaller-scale architecture.
Restrained but not unremarkable, the winery forms an independent building in the urban ensemble. Each structure is perforated by window bands according to their function. The resolution of the massive volumes is well noticeable on several levels. On the one hand for visitors as soon as they enter the area of the winery, on the other hand from the distant view of the roof areas. At the visitor level, besides to the large glass facades, the cuts above the visitor footbridge are particularly important. In addition to illuminating the hall, they also ensure a targeted “highlighting” of the footbridge, which guides visitors through the production.
The above-ground part of the building is divided into six units. The first one forms an arbor above the grape delivery. Together with the opposite existing buildings the arbor defines the entree to the winery. As a result the concept includes the stock directly.
