A “Quinta da Lixa,” one of the largest producers of Vinho Verde in Portugal, deemed it necessary to create an extension to their facilities – a showroom and tasting room to welcome guests and clients.
From the moment one arrives at the winery, a stainless steel tunnel-like structure greets visitors and guides them through the intended journey. The intervention draws inspiration from the energy and flow of Vinho Verde, employing curves that convey dynamism and create small distinct spaces suitable for informal gatherings.
The showroom provides a privileged view of the production and bottling area, while the tasting room at the top enjoys expansive views of the vineyards.
