Evelyn County

Evelyn County. 2002 AIA Architecture Award Commercial New Category

evelyn county

The building is located immediately adjacent to the Evelyn County Estate Vineyard.  Three main components include cellar door sales, Gallery and Restaurant, all of which promote vineyard wines.

The interior space is on a platform projecting out of the site slope so that elevated views of the vineyard and landscape can be enjoyed.

The roof tilts up towards the road so that on approach, from uphill at the vineyard entrance, the interior can be seen.

The internal space can be reconfigured in a number of ways using sliding wall panels to maximise varied uses in a single volume.
