Château de Beaucastel / シャトー・ド・ボーカステル

Chemin de Beaucastel, France / シャトー・ド・ボーカステル, フランス

The Domaine de Beaucastel produces one of the finest wines, of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation. Considering this reputation our approach consists of developing the site, without altering it, increasing production capacity and providing new flexible spaces. Starting from the historic residence, the project is articulated in strips of program that extend towards the landscape. Between this program a leisure garden opens wide to the expansive landscape, with production yard designed to optimize logistical flows. The original architectural spirit and simplicity of the two-sided pitched roofs are preserved. The buildings relationship with the landscape and its territory is restored and balanced to its scale. The use of low-carbon materials such as wood or adobe strengthening the Perrin Family’s aspiration to preserve the essence on the place.
