How does a utilitarian wine shed become the new home for a young wine, and become a gateway for new audiences to wine and unique food? How does one engage with a Dionysian culture whilst creating a calm Apollonian and cerebral spatial experience? We had to create a fresh and lightweight architectural response to the existing shed and environs, employing what we call "cascading space", where spaces lead and flow unto each visually and physically. The architectural language of glass, steel and wood is designed to create a sharp and arresting contrast with the setting, whilst allowing views of the vineyards to penetrate deep into the interior. Clarity of approach and slights of hand with axial and asymmetrical elements allow for the space to be clearly understood, and yet with enough difference in detail and architectural moments to offer delight to the visitor.
