This winery by Melbourne studio Folk Architects is embedded into the side of a hill in Australia’s Yarra Valley winemaking region (+ slideshow).
Folk Architects was approached by owners of a family-run winery to design a new wine-making facility on the site of their existing “cellar door building”, where customers are invited to sample wines.
One half of the building nestles into the hillside, but it is fronted on two sides by concrete walls that protrude like blades from the sloping landscape.
Part of the northern facade is clad in polycarbonate that allows daylight to filter in during the day, but also becomes translucent when illuminated at night.
