Client: Shilda winery 


Area:2000m2


Architect: X-architecture


Visualization: @michael_archviz 


Location: Kahketi, Georgia



The concept is about celebrating the wine in its every aspect, from harvesting to consuming.


The complex is in Kaheti, Georgia, which is the wine production region of the country. 
The 2.5 metre spacing of the vineyard is translated into the structural grid of the building and articulated through a series of curved beams. The form is a considered response to the environmental factors of the area and the qualities of the wine. The building uses the thermal mass of the soil to moderate the internal temperature, where the wine is stored, served and tasted.


The Form


The landscape is elevated in order to accommodate 3 main function thus forming 3 hills.


The 3 main functions are:


Wine tasting, wine Storing and wine knowledge sharing.


 


Structure/Construction


Structure follows the 2.5m spacing of vineyards and is expressed internally and externally. The structure consists of steel beams with concrete support at the base.


The spacing and the depth of the steel beams are accommodating the soil and the build-up for the vineyard. This structural principle emphasizes the idea of embedding the building within the landscape of vineyards.


Environmental


Shilda has high annual solar gain and very dry environment, to address this; the thermal mass of the soil is used to optimize the cooling of the building, and in addition to this most of the facade is facing towards the north to avoid direct solar gain.
