Carl Fredrik Svenstedt Architect has designed a winery with a curving facade carved out of sandstone by a robot in France's Rhône Valley.
The Delas Frères winery has revived an abandoned site in the heart of a Tain l’Hermitage, reputed for its wines grown on terraced hills above the Rhône River since the Romans.
Using highly-technical structural stone construction, the studio has built a new wine building and a wine shop, and a renovated guest-house with a walled garden.
The wine building forms an undulating garden wall in structural stone. The stone ties the project to the site, while the solid, porous walls create ideal conditions for wine.
