PRIZE GRAN DE AREA for Contribution to Architecture
We are pleased to share with you the Prize Gran de Area of contribution to Architecture for the execution of the rehabilitation of A Casa da Viña in Allariz-Ourense with the excellent project of Seara Peleteiro Architects: Juan Seara and Berta Peleteiro.
The intervention stands out for its respect for the existing building, a formidable farmhouse and winery more than a century old where careful attention to the historical and cultural legacy is essential in the entire performance. In this way the openings of passage openings on the ground floor and first floor are materialized, the appearance of an internal staircase carved in rock, the execution of an interior core to house services and facilities and the opening of skylights on the roof to improve conditions daytime lighting. The interior wall treatment recovers the original whitewashing of the rooms, favoring a certain abstract perception of spaces and intensifying the curious lighting effects.
A Casa da Viña wins the Prize Gran de Area for Contribution to Architecture in 2017 and is a finalist for the COAG 2014-2016 awards, where the Seara Peleteiro Arquitectos studio is also awarded in the Rehabilitation category. The Area Grande Soluciones team is extremely grateful and satisfied for having been part of this magnificent experience.
