CM Mimarlık’s interior touch on Vinero Winery and Hotel intrigues with the thrill of the unknown in the lap of luxury…
Located in Çanakkale’s Eceabat district, Gelibolu, Turkey, this winery-hotel, with architecture by Tekeli-Sisa Architectural Partnership and interiors by CM Mimarlık is an influential spatial configuration using a design approach compatible with the organic process of wine production.
Besides the production area, which is well insulated against resultant production hazards, the approximately 16,000 sq. m. edifice incorporates storage and ageing facilities; service programs such as laboratories and offices; and a 25-room guesthouse including F&B service areas, and a specific spa program.
A distinct identity is conferred on each of the guest rooms in terms of sleeping space, setup, material use and wet spaces with due attention to relaxation and ambience. Similarly, following the industrial footprint, raw metal structures are incorporated with rough industrial attachment details and solid wood elements are delicately handled to lend pseudo-finesse to the Vinero, which like any other winery, is only active for a particular time of the year.
With the common space facing the main entrance for the offices, guesthouse and winery entrance designed as a three-dimensional space, an amphi (presentation space and in-house lounge) adds a zing to the whole winery-cum-hotel concept.
In fact, considering the wide canvas, the material palette is quite diverse and interesting. Although the colour palette is restricted to various shades of umber and gray, a metallic sheen is played with in sync with the kegs and other industrial elements. Bling is sparse but strategically anointed; whilst the long corridors that connect the hotel and winery are treated using a mix of finishes, doing away with any monotony that might set in.
The hotel is plush. Forms, textures and patterns are fluid and wide-ranging; giving rise to distinctive ambiences and moods. Overall, Vinero has a high aesthetic quotient with its voluminous ceiling accentuating its raw appeal.
