Wine Cellar H, Semič
Private Investor, Project 2010-2012, Construction 2012-2013
A client wanted a new wine cellar for personal use, where they could save mostly wine, and also fruits through the winter, saving the equipment and to have a small space for invite family colleagues to try wine and other local delicacies.
On location, there was old wine yard cottage, which cannot be fully renovated. Material from it is used for the facade of new one, where wine plant climb on it. New cellar is actually concrete underground building. Green roof and thick solid stone wall, facing south side provide natural efficient temperature in deeper spaces in cellar where products are saved. Because of naturally accelerated ventilation conditions are perfects - no need for additional electrical consumption. In presentational space we can find two skylight openings. On the roof it extended green space at the entrance of the house. Floors are made of plastic resistant material in red wine color. Furniture is made of old wine barrels, including doors and shelves.
