The Tili Wine Italy Guest Homes competition is a collaboration with Tili Vini Italy, a boutique winery that produces a range of high quality organic wines. All the wine produced in the winery is done so using organic and sustainable methods, without using any chemicals and investing in new technology that reduces the amount of CO2 produced.
Tili Vini Italy has introduced a number of processes that result in their winery having a negative carbon footprint, such as manually pruning and harvesting their crops by hand, using photovoltaic solar panels for electricity and bottling using only recycled glass and natural cork.
For the Tili Wine Italy Guest Homes competition, participants are being asked to design a collection of five guest homes located on the property that could accommodate up to five couples at a time. The main purpose of these guest homes is to promote and encourage visitors to take part in the wine tasting experiences available at the vineyard, with a comfortable living space as well as a small wellness area.
Submitted designs should have a strong focus on sustainability and be environmentally conscious at all stages, from construction through to day-to-day operation of the guest homes. As Tili Vini Italy are planning construction of the selected design concepts, projects should be considerate of the owner’s heritage and business philosophy, incorporating a love of wine-making and a harmony with nature in their designs.
