Chrismont Winery

Winner Non-Residential Design: New Project

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

Sleek sophisticated blending with its surroundings while perfectly framing spectacular views, it is apparent that a lot of thought has gone into this design. The winery serves its purpose of entertaining guests in fine style, and being very site-specific in the way it reacts to its environment with its large polished concrete slab providing northern thermal mass. Entering via a smaller entry, the main room skillion roof opens up to views of the King Valley. It would be an ideal place in which to be entertained. The judges were impressed with the way the walls and windows perfectly framed the views. It aims and succeeds in a design which floats above the winery, exploiting the location for the comfort of all.
