The Californian studio Claudia Turrent + Alejandro D’Acosta Arquitectos have bought wood and wine even closer by creating a wine facility from recycled wood.

Both the design of the Ombligo wine facility and the origins of the raw material stand out to whoever visits this ingenious and creative project. The building, which aims to unite land and sea, is set in the Guadalupe Valley, one of the main wine growing regions in Mexico. The building’s layout simulates a mountain range in honour of the valley which runs parallel with the sea and is surrounded by desert and steep mountains.

The most efficient wine growing production method was used, with a radial pattern which reduces the distance between the different production phases, therefore facilitating the wine making process which is subsequently bottled up and commercialised.

The building’s floors and roof were created using discarded boats from a nearby port, transforming them into barrel vaults which prevail over the facility.

Besides being a considerable recycling and sustainability exercise, this project offers optimum results which perfectly blend the building with its natural surroundings and even uses the wind in the region for wine aeration, therefore reducing the need for pumps.
