A Wine Cellar in an Open Space: Repurposed Brewery by Chybik + Kristof

Round shapes stacked high - a sculpture of black wood in a whitewashed space. The jutting plinths of the sculpture, where the tables are located, are connected by stairways. The details convey the same sense of space that reigns in traditional wine cellars of South Moravia, although guests sit in the old technical room of a brewery.

Architects: Chybik + Kristof Architects
Location: Hradní 2, Znaim (CZ)


Healed Wounds: Conversion and Expansion of an Old Hospital in Meursault

Established in the 12th century as a hospital and refuge for the poor and sick, this stone building in Meursault still shows its historical structure. With a new function as a cultural centre, and an added wing, the architects have complemented and rehabilitated the old existing building, thereby gently healing the wounds that had developed over time.

Builder: Gemeinde Meursault

Architecture: Jung Architekten & Simon Buri (heritage architect)

Location: 21190 Meursault (FR), Burgund, Côte d'Or
