The project is structured regarding to the following points: a four-meter-high closet that organizes the service spaces, the action centre where human activity is assisted by machines and the zona 900, a welcome lounge with a striped carpet and a bright ceiling, underneath which the cellar is located, and where the control unit monitorizes the vineyard in real-time, and the design and pedagogy of the wine takes place.

In conclusion, this low cost criteria force us to claim: less (money) is more!
