In the regular landscape of the vineyards, the only existing built elements are the ancient farmhouse and the wine cellar. The project intends the renovation and extension of these agrarian exploitations in order to transform them into a centre devoted to wine culture.
A new hotel, spa and restaurant are arranged in the U shaped ancient volume with double pitched roof while a new star shaped piece is inserted in the courtyard connecting the old and the new constructions. In this way the complex acquires a new relationship with the surroundings and the proposed constructions do not interfere with the old buildings. The courtyard, centre of the activity of the farmhouse, is transformed in shape by the star shaped construction but maintains its use as it links the new functions around it.
The wine cellar is enlarged and redefined related to the rest, forming a unit of loose parts linked to open spaces.
