Process

The project references the mineral architecture — the quarries and monolithic stone churches — of Saint-Émilion.

The Parc de la Magdelaine is extended from the other side of the road towards our site using a palette of similar materials and vegetation. The project transforms an existing stone house whose sculptural qualities are revealed through the selective blocking of openings. An adjacent monolith, made of concrete rather than stone, is tied back to the house through the reception hall’s roof, which extends towards the vineyards and the Dordogne valley.

Façade mockups to test the exterior surface of the concrete: with its ochre-yellow tint and light texturing, the concrete places the new addition in a subtle dialogue with the materiality of the existing house.

The textured concrete panels of the passageway are made through a process of CNC milling and casting. They make reference to an etching by Albrecht DĂŒrer from 1504, entitled ‘Joachim and the Angel’. This motive is also represented on the labels of the wine ‘ChĂąteaux Belair Monange’.
