Domaine de Beaucastel
In collaboration with STUDIO MUMBAI
Domaine de Beaucastel is located in the South of France in the wine growing region of Côtes du Rhône. Our proposal for the extension of the existing winery roots itself in the idea of terroir. Tuned into the cyclical flux of the moon, the project harnesses materials found in the immediate environment. The construction primarily made from the earth excavated, compressed and relocated in a balance of cut and fill, provides a volume of space for the wine cellars and a water cistern set into the earth.
Archetypal building materials such as brick, stone, lime, clay and earth are used in a manner, methods of making that allow for the quality of the building and its environment to be self-reliant and improve through time.
