LOGOWINES’s winery is located in a strip of land of 3.5 hectares, part of the Herdade da Pimenta in Évora.
With a rectangular configuration of 110m by 27m, it is composed of a volume coated with cork panels, intercepted by three gray “boxes” , that organize the main functional areas of the winery.
The winery has a total of 3,780.00 m2 of construction, distributed in two floors, with one partially buried in order to take advantage of best weather conditions / environment for production, winemaking, wine storage and aging.
The winery assumes itself as an element that establishes a formal link between the traditions of the place and the dynamics of our days. The rhythm given to the facades, with a strong definition of horizontal lines, using various thicknesses of cladding panels of cork, where they fuse the openings for natural lighting inside is reinforced by the natural behavior of the chosen material, causing a set of textures, shades and shadows that contribute to the idea of evolutional building, that mutates over time, in a clear allusion to the maturation of the wine during the period of production.
Inside, a large space with 9.5 m of ceiling heght, was designed with the objective of developing an innovative production method with overlapped wine vats, which boosts the gravity system, avoiding the continuous pumping of wine during the various stages of winemaking.
On the lower floor, the building is equipped with a barrel vault for 400 half barrels, a bottling line and a warehouse with 700.00 m2. The technical areas were perfectly integrated within the building: a central laboratory for analysis and testing, a lunchroom and changing rooms / showers for employees.
On the upper floor, that occupies the area of two “boxes” located on the east, lies the area of wine tourism, administration area, with a reception, a tasting area and offices / meeting rooms.
These spaces have a strong relationship with the outside through the large windows that open onto the surrounding vineyards and also through the courtyard, thought to be used on a daily basis a warm and intimate atmosphere, by those who work or visit the winery.
