CHYBIK + KRISTOF sets house of wine within reconverted brewery in the czech republic

CHYBIK + KRISTOF has completed the house of wine, a wine bar and tasting room set within a reconverted 19th-century brewery and its adjacent technical hall, added to the structure in the 1970s. located in znojmo, in the heart of the moravian region, czech republic, the project overlooks an 9th-century chapel and neighboring gothic church, reflecting the town’s many architectural layers and histories.CHYBIK + KRISTOF sets house of wine within 19th-century brewery in the czech republicimages by laurian ghinitoiu + alex shoots buildings

 

 

CHYBIK + KRISTOF has restored the 19th-century brewery, treating it as a heritage site, and merged it with the adjacent 1970s space, adopting an individual approach of renovation for each, depending on their distinct structural pasts and functions. the brewery’s classical rectangular edifice has taken a new role as a historical exhibition space and wine bar, where visitors are invited to delve into the rich history of the moravian wine culture. conversely, the architects have preserved only the outer structure of the former technical hall to house an entirely new internal space – a newly-conceived wine bar.

a playful arrangement of organic volumes set on various planes divide this void volume into individual areas, reflecting the scale and atmosphere of traditional wine cellars of the region through several smaller interconnected rooms. asymmetrical windows throughout this space invite visitors to engage in a dialogue with the region and its landscape as they open the hall up to the surrounding views – the neighboring churches, the town, and the river valley. encouraging this interaction and reflecting this historical collage, the tone of the façade is a combination of the neighboring buildings’ distinct colors, thereby affirming a sense of architectural and historical belonging.

‘the house of wine challenges traditional notions of restoration of historical buildings,’ explains founding architect of CHYBIK + KRISTOF , ondřej chybík. ‘the presence of two distinct structures, each with its own history and original function, inspired us to adopt likewise distinct approaches to renovation. on the one hand, we adhere to a rather orthodox restoration, based on preservation; on the other hand, we embrace a more experimental – and unusual – approach which fully rethinks the initial structure. in doing so, we immerse ourselves in the town’s heritage and landscape, while establishing the house of wine as a part, a reconciliation and a continuation of its architectural history.’
