Chateau Lynch-Bages Winery

The Chateau Lynch-Bages Winery, located in Pauillac the Bordeaux region of France, was redesigned as a new facility by PEI Architects LLP.  The newly designed multi-use building maintains the feeling of a winemaker village, and now houses all wine making operations under one roof: the vinification, the wine barrel cellar, and the office headquarters.  This complex now consists of three interconnected volumes: a large glass enclosure for the vat room that is flooded by natural light from an industrial-inspired saw tooth roof; an all-glass volume for the office wing, and a stone cladded rectangular volume that houses the support areas.
