Buho Arquitectos designed the winery for a producer in northwest Spain to echo the company's brand values and production ethos.
This project is for a small artisan winery, known for its white wine matured in oak barrels, whose brand image is a paper boat.
The main challenge was to integrate a large volume, such as an industrial warehouse, in an urban environment, in the heart of a small historic village in Spain. To address this, the building's roof skirts are broken up into several smaller inclined planes with three purposes: one, functional, to define the different work areas inside; two, urban planning, so as to volumetrically integrate the building into the plot of small roofs; and three, symbolic, to pay heed to the lines and form of the paper boat logo and commercial image of the winery.
