Multifunctional complexes may look differently. This category can include projects such as Toro Center, but also projects like Vorniceni Winery, which will combine industrial and HoReCa premises.
The concept was conceived as a unity, the purpose of it being the rehabilitation of a winery and introduction into the project of points of interest for the public, meant to contribute to the development of the business. Thus, on the territory of the winery will appear: a tasting room, a wine shop, a restaurant, a hotel and an event hall. All this being isolated from the production facilities.
Let’s start from the very beginning. This place has a history of more than 6 decades, so the need for its revitalization was obvious. At the first stage it is planned to remove the non-functional constructions, which are not of interest for the subsequent activity, and evacuate the tanks. The premises of the winery were divided into two parts with different destinations: the one for production and the one for the visitors. In support of this idea we have arranged two access areas for each of them.
We focused on creating the complex designed for visitors. Thus, we designed the redevelopment of two existing cellars with a terrace above them. We have modified the entrance to the main building, creating the access through an arc gallery. The entire interior space was divided into a tasting room, wine shop and a reception area. The lobby area was conceived to be spacious, because namely it connects the building with another new element – the hotel. And the last element meant to contribute substantially to the development of the winery is the event hall, which has to offer premises for events organization.
For each of the newly designed constructions, as well as for the ones that we have rethought, we applied a laconic style, in which simple lines emphasize the essence of the business. At the same time, the cellars become reminders of the origins and traditions.
