Architect: Victor Rahola i Aguadé & Jorge Vidal Tomás


Location: Finca Les Moreres, Mont-Ras. Girona


Program:  573.29m2


The proposal consists in the construction of an agricultural building partially buried in the ground of 24.00 x 23.00 m. The spaces are organized from east to west, placing the production and the storage areas in the right aisle, in relation with the countryside and the driveway.


1.       The general layout is composed by four aisles and between them, servant spaces for mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems. The first aisle contains a warehouse for agricultural utensils; a laboratory; a storage space for cork stoppers and a refrigeration chamber. The second aisle is used for grape maceration process; the third one contains the barrels and bottles; the fourth one holds wine tanks and storage for ready-to-bottle bottles. An underground tunnel connects the main spaces of the winery with the existing “Masia”, whereas the entrance to the production areas is directly done from the vinyards .


2.       The overall proposal is buried in order to provide the ideal temperature for a winery, and in terms of landscape design, the new construction serves as a platform that enhances the existing construction.


3.       The depth of space is the absorption of sound, emptiness and shadow. Light organizes space.


4.       Since the winery is buried, the earth pressure and loads have a strong impact on the estructural design. In that sense, retaining walls are curved to resist compression loads from the ground and the roof is made by semicircular concrete vaults.
