Only the time will be who constructs this work that it will never finish.

We are in a population eminently rural, of twenty inhabitants, but with a census strangely multinational. The project develops the reform and adequacy of a “bicentenary” wine vault in restaurant. The ancient underground gallery will be the main dining room and in the new block they arrange the area of bar, kitchens and the auxiliary dependences.

The performance thinks about how to construct the sensations continuity between all the spaces of the complex. The hill that lodges the work is formed in its entirety by ground, extremely compact which brown rock that contributes an ideal energy conditions.

The old vault was excavated and carved completely to hand, being it is made determinant in the whole process. In the contemporary building concrete was used dying with a finished one extremely worked in all its surface. Inside the same one there were fixed strips of poor wood, seen and destined to rot, capturing thus passing really of the days… The previous intuitions have wanted to be constructed.

The result only has been possible with the continuous, exhaustive and experimental work along the whole execution. Any fact in-situ, we all have used the hands (do it yourself!), also the owners have intervened in all the phases, even the chemistry … But the work ownes to the ground, which generates it and protects it. A hard, firm, serious matter… marked by the pressure, the climate and the time.
