AND Studio

Located in the municipality of Murlo, in Siena’s Province, this project is located in one of the most beautiful parts of the Tuscan countryside. The project is meant to fit context becoming a modern wine-production location as well as a cultural centre. Besides providing all the necessary surfaces needed by the winery, space will be created for the use of artistic performances and concerts for 300 people.

The project wants to reduce as minimum as possible the hill’s excavations therefore is composed by different volumes, standing discreetly in its surrounding, leaning on the morphology of the hill following its principal direction.

The geometrized contour lines of the hill become the main structural walls of the winery. The walls, made with the local stone, outline the inside wine production space.

The wine selling area and tasting are located in the volume that leans over the walls creating the only distinguishable architectural signal in the project: a sort of a telescope towards the valley.
