the winemaker's house by SAGRA architects builds on local traditions in rural hungary

situated amid a vineyard in the hunagrian village of mindszentkálla, SAGRA architects has realized the winemaker’s house. designed as a contemporary interpretation of the region’s vernacular architecture, the new intervention reacts to the character of the place while building on local traditions.

the winemaker’s house is built on a plot close to the main road and marks the first building of a larger winegrowing and winemaking complex. the actual winemaking process is situated in a different location, therefore the house contains purely residential functions.

the building is divided into three different functions: living area, garage, and a semi- open terrace functioning as a public space

 

 

the home is split by SAGRA into three different functions: the living program, the garage, and a semi open terrace that serves as a public space. this simple and practical separation reflects the traditional living-barn-storage division of houses in the area. the volume of the building is also rooted in local traditions, as it follows the morphology of the surrounding landscape and is orientated to the direction of the slope.

the volume is divided by perforated basalt stone walls. the light filtering through the perforated walls is reminiscent of the traditional agricultural buildings. the semi-open and internal spaces of the building are connected by the fragmented pitched roof. the slight fragmentation of the roof and the volume, its randomness, the natural materials of the building are modern representations of the local building traditions.

the semi-open space with its open roof structure is reminiscent of the traditional barns. the open space continues above the internal spaces as an open attic, functioning as an open storage.
