Research Centre of Vine and Wine related Science (ICVV)

"La Grajera" Estate, Logroño (La Rioja). Spain

Client: Spanish Council for Scientific Research (CSIC).

Located on a rural property with exquisite natural scenery, it aims to become one of the world's leading centres in grape and wine research.

We have designed the building with two purposes in mind: maximum functionality and integration into the environment.

The building comprises three volumes. Two symmetrical volumes form the Research Building. The two upper floors house laboratories and offices for more than 200 researchers, located in eight almost identical modules, whilst the laboratories and communal facilities are situated on the ground floor.

The third volume, the Experimental Winery, is an extension of the lower part of the previous two, creates harmony with the fall of the land.
