The Counts Guerrieri Rizzardi – a wine and oil producing family – want to build the extension of their current winery, a museum, a small auditorium, a point of sale and a restaurant. The site is close to Lago di Garda in a semi-rural area surrounded by olive tree groves and vineyards. Rather than building an object, the project proposes the construction of a small village – a borgo – a set of small buildings contained by a perimeter wall that forms a private, intimate world. The winery and bottle conservation area make up a podium that regularizes the steep slope of the site. On this artificial podium the pavilions containing the rest of the program are located. Towards the outside, the project reveals as a simple perimeter wall perfectly integrated into the semi-rural landscape.

It is a podium with a large roof supported only by large triangular concrete pillars. The podium defines a new relationship between the house, the olive grove and the lake. Between the concrete structure, two simple glazed volumes totally open to the landscape contain the apartments and the wine tasting space. A tunnel will connect the guest house with the nearby winery. Continue reading Barozzi/Veiga
