Chrismont Winery

Winner Interior Design – Non-Residential

Designer: M G Design & Building Pty Ltd
Builder: Bright Alpine Builders Pty Ltd
Photographer: Matthew Mallett Photography
Location: Cheshunt, VIC

Chrismont Winery combines a palette of concrete, stone, wood and glass to create a light and inviting contemporary interior. It connects to the landscape with generous windows that frame the views, bringing the outside in, and allows the focus to extend beyond the vineyards. Its stone clad fireplace implies warmth, nurturing and inviting one to linger. The interior materials are a clever play of contrast: the strong chocolate timber cabinetry set with the smooth honey coloured veneer acoustic panels and ceiling linings are well-balanced. The design supports the function of a restaurant, reception venue and cellar door sales without being over scaled. These interiors make visitors feel comfortable, and invite them to relax and indulge.
