JG Cellar competition
Part of the expansion plan, the family group Juan Gil, opened a design competition for a new cellar in La Rioja, the Spanish most productive region for wine. Paying tribute to the family dynasty founder, Rosario Vera, the cellar, further from accommodating the expert technical and logistic criteria that the company is characterized for, the building also accommodates a visitors and commercial area in direct relation with the town of La Guardia. The proposal divides and scales volumes to minimize impact in the territory and accommodate the use of the roofs for events, while fosters natural light within the working space.
