located in sarnadas de ródão, portugal, the atelier rua’s pavilion punctuates a winery at the site’s highest level. as the terrain is divided by a highway into two equal parts, the idea of the project was to unify the existing building and the necessary expansion of the program, transforming them into a single object.

due to the specifics of the pre-existing building and the new pavilion, two distinct materials arise in a complementary contrast with each other. first is the cork panel lining of the existing walls — a material related to this region has excellent thermal and acoustic characteristics. reinforcing this concern regarding the thermal behavior of the building, the second metal skin of golden color constitutes a ‘ring’ that surrounds the existing building and materializes the new spaces of the winery.

the ring provides overshadowing of the technical spaces allowing the necessary regulation of temperature and ventilation in a natural way. this solution also led rua team to design more versatile and sophisticated elevations. given its micro perforation and waving sheet modules, this skin is developed as a texture that works at different scales: a translucent material from the motorway and a textile appearance in the greater proximity.

the pavilion’s open space has two independent accesses: the eastern entrance receives the grapes whilst the gate on the southern one is for loading and unloading the wine. cold production machines are located on the east elevation as well.

on the northern side, there is an extension of the existing pavilion that corresponds to the social and production support areas of the program. the access to this sector is made through a covered outdoor gallery at the ground level that rises above the vineyard as one approaches the main entrance.

on the ground floor, one can find the reception, wine exhibition area, office, laboratory, sanitary facilities, changing rooms and storage, which are accessible from the production area. a grand stairway connects the 3 floors from here: on the basement there is the casks room with the capacity for 80 wooden barrels, designed as a safe box protected by a big glass screen and concrete exterior walls. the kitchen, a small suite, and the wine tasting room, which directly overviews the south-facing vineyard through a covered terrace, are located on the first floor.
