Rubrum Winery

─░zmir, Turkey 2022

Nestled in the countryside of Seferihisar, the Rubrum Winery combines the region's long-standing wine tradition with a contemporary design in constant dialogue with the surrounding environment. The context occurs together with a field of rich soil conditions to grow vines and feed its habitat with a perfect climate. In addition, the place exists where the green interacts with the sky, vastly gets exposed to the powerful Aegean sun, and gently welcomes the visitors as it does to the grapes.

Our conceptual approach progressed simultaneously with our desire to create an experience for visitors wishing to understand and appreciate the wine they consume at this location. The Rubrum Winery also gives access to the acts of harvesting grapes, maturing, and bottling the wine. It also includes a shop, a tasting room, and a private dining area for the guests. By creating a dynamic interplay of light, shadow, reflection, and repetition, the architecture becomes an expression of slipping through the valley. The elegant and refined reflection of the landscape in which the vines grow is achieved by planning reflecting pools and making the mirroring effect complement our surroundings.
