  • Who is this Zeljko Buric??
    I hope is amazing like this winery.
    Really nice facade…..

    Lele says:
  • Nice done but not half as good as the winery from Portzamparc:

    Atelier Argos says:
  • Nice try. But neither the eye nor the grape was shown respect. Lots of styles, movements, ideas, jolting junctures, confusion and a bit of disney. Settle down, get your goal in sight and then flow into it. If that had been done the extraneous oddities would have been eliminated. You will do better next time–it is obvious you have it in you!

    Daniel Morris says:
  • The Portzamparc winery seems like a mix between a sports hall and a flying saucer, and only made of cement. The winery of Kozlovic uses local materials with an contemporary design but not aggressive
