Using the winery’s name as a concept driver (Cuna de Tierra) and its connection to the context, the design process explores the relationship between wine development, the site, the user and the main material in use; poured soil, which indeed completes the necessities required in such program.
The project discovers the association between the site and the particular needs of the wine manufacturing process focusing in the material and structure where it can be housed.
By working with independent structures, the project explores the possible interactions and tensions created between the volumes, the voids between them, and their relation to the functional process of the winery, allowing room for any expansion needed in a near future.
