With a commanding view over its namesake vineyard, this home both embraces and defends its environment.
The semi-arid climate brings extremes of weather and strong northerly winds.
To combat this, the building was conceived as a pre-cast concrete shell. Parts of this shell are exposed to give hints of its structure with the rest of the building clad in a corrosion resistant steel panelling.
The interior of this shell takes reference from the surrounding vineyard with vine like surface treatments and a long narrow 'row' entry which presents glimpses of the vines as you enter.
The buildings are arranged to provide outdoor sheltered spaces in and around the living spaces.
