BRH+ has created an eco-sustainable winery in the heart of the Piedmontese hills in Italy to minimise impact on the environment.
The project is a building in the heart of the Piedmontese Alta Langa devoted to the production of natural wines.
Located on a hilly relief rich in vineyards and woods, it is conceived to integrate and harmonise with the landscape. The architecture is designed as a fragment of the territory, with a continuous cladding made of terracotta elements.
With its simple geometric shapes, the building expresses an original reinterpretation of vernacular architecture that eliminates superfluous decoration.
Construction materials favour local and eco-sustainable products, preferring solutions which reduce the need for maintenance and ensure that, in a possible future demolition of the building, the recovery and recycling of the largest number of building materials limits the footprint left by the building.
