This thesis deals with the design of a winery and a path leading to it. The winery production area and the senses are both offered to implement the above investigation. The proposed route of the landscape contributes to the awaking of the senses too.
The site is on a low hill to the south of the valley of Nemea (Fliountos Hill), close to the sources of Asopos river and has been chosen after field observation combined with the use of aerial photographs.
The aim is to design a modern winery that could be visited and can produce good quality wine at the same time. First of all, it’s an industrial building with a defined production line and secondly, a system of movements and spaces referred to the visitors as well as the route of the landscape.
The building is mostly caved. It consists of a number of terraces- courtyards that are used as nodes to provide further movements into the building. The slope helps the sinking of the building. Only one part is revealed and lets the natural light enter.
All these factors provide the proper conditions for the process of winemaking and at the same time some of the original design goals -related to tactile sense and body movement- are achieved.
