Adega da Casa da Torre

Print
Visiting a wine cellar is a unique experience due to the smell, the humidity, the dust and the light. However, contemporary wine cellars are organised, sterile and clean laboratories, without all that we imagine to be a wine cellar. Adega da Casa da Torre endeavours to achieve the balance between the reality of a contemporary production and the imagined image of this type of space. An extension to the existing wine cellar creates a huge wooden pitched roof that is able to house all the necessary functions and machinery. The base in granite is the element that allows for stability of the form and a clear relationship with the land.
