Scenic Wine Route

A gallery and two vineyards are successful examples of answering the genius loci with an inspired, non-site specific architecture.
Just in time for the late harvest we will also test for content.

House and Gallery Hametner in Stoob
Architect: Hans Gangoly
For years the family Hametner has been steadfastly committed to a diverse cultural debate in a traditional country environment. An old farmhouse is used for gallery activities and now renovated to function as year round living quarters. A new building structure with a clearly free-standing form was placed in the courtyard of the house and expands the standard structural linear space. The new volume splits the courtyard into a public gallery-courtyard and a private garden-courtyard. Both facades are largely glassed in and allow for a visual relationship between the two courtyards and also the old house can still be experienced as a structure.
The large glass surfaces as a contrast to the existing small frame windows serve to mediate between inside and outside.

Wine Seller Weninger in Horitschon
Architects: Raimund Dickinger with Kriso Leinfellner / propeller z
New structuring of the courtyard of a top class wine grower with an up-to-date presentation of the firm and its products. Following the typology of the mid-Burgenland farmhouses, the individual areas are placed according to function in a series of three cubicles on the small grounds. The centre of the plant is the tasting room directly connected with the barrel cellar.
