Immersa tra gli ulivi e i vigneti della Valle di Guadalupe, in Messico, la cantina Tercio sorge accanto a una residenza precedentemente completata. Perpendicolari l’uno all’altro gli edifici formano un dialogo aprendosi su una piazza comune. La cantina risponde ai volumi delle circostanti montagne e agisce come un altro livello del paesaggio.

Questo eno-laboratorio che produce un particolare vino ideato dal proprietario (1/3 Cabernet, 1/3 Barbera, 1/3 Petit Syrah), ha un design lineare che si sviluppa su tre spazi principali che si aprono completamente verso l’esterno portando ventilazione naturale all’interno dell’edificio. La materialità della struttura riflette il rude e al contempo sofisticato processo della produzione del vino. L’esterno in acciaio corten e i rivestimenti in materiale acrilico bianco constrastano il crudo ambiente circostante creando un edificio inaspettatamente raffinato.
