2019 Best of Design Award for Commercial — Hospitality: Furioso Vineyards

Designer: Waechter Architecture
Location: Dundee, Oregon

Furioso Vineyards brings together vineyard, winery, and tasting room through an iconic architectural gesture. Located in Dundee, Oregon, in the heart of a winemaking region, the building distinguishes itself by embracing the vineyards first and foremost. Seemingly floating above the vines, Furioso Vineyards opens up in each direction, forming calibrated connections with the landscape. While providing distinct zones for the various stages and techniques of production, multipurpose spaces allow the tasting environment and winemaking areas to blur at strategic points. Through its material palette, mechanical integration, and articulation of details, the project strives to reduce the building to its underlying structure, highlighting its salient elements.
