Wine Testing Facility
old grapevine root in form of a digital fabricated scultpure generates the single supporting column of the building and symbolize coevally the main building function: wine testing facility
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The "Grapevine House Concept" is based on a high utilization of the air space above the appropriate plot of land (vineyard) in connection with an irreducible demand on the available plot area. The kind of used design for the supporting column should appear in form of artificial nature, almost emerging as an unifying element between the pending building in the air and the surrounding landscape.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:

The research abstract involves mainly an experiment to find a new interpretation of a wine testing facility in form of corporate architecture. There is not only to characterize the apperance of such facility but also to improve the operating function in accordance with environment protection.
The research challenge wants to convince the build owner about the sense of such sophisticated sculptural construction. Also this challenge can be performed as a label backing the winery products.
