Project overview
Set in a converted 19th-century brewery and an adjacent technical area added to the structure in the 1970s, the project overlooks a 9th-century chapel and neighbouring Gothic church, reflecting the town’s many architectural layers and histories. Merging these two spaces with distinct heritages and adopting individual approaches – and understandings – of renovation for each, we responded to each building’s structural past and function, all the while rethinking preconceptions around restoration. The 19th-century former brewery hall was given a classical restoration and has become a tasting room, where visitors are introduced to the rich history of wine culture in the region of Moravia. The former technical are was retained only as a shell, whose walls mark the various changes the building has gone through. This “white cube” receives a playful, expressive insertion that redefines its interior. A dark mass of organic shapes fills the space, adjusting the scale and atmosphere of this white cube to that of the region’s traditional wine cellars. The design of the façade for the former technical space is not the result of aesthetic ambitions, but emerges from a desire to make visible the previous layers of the building and open it to views of the city. The wall that divided and hid the structure from the river valley was removed in an effort to create a new dialogue between the inhabitants of the city and the new House of Wine. Within a fixed form and in a specific geographical location, the House of Wine expresses a more fluid type of heritage, that of interaction within our society. We believe that many aspects of the built environment that are not currently considered “heritage” are important to preserve and display, as a means of self-reflection for the society that built them.
