Studio: Gold over Blue

Designer / Architect: Syd Fay Studio

Personal / Commissioned: Commissioned Project

Location: Quinta do Monte d'oiro Portugal

Portugal is known internationally for its wines and beautifully located vineyards. This unbuilt project from Syd Fay Studio imagination proposed a simple yet striking wine tasting pavilion that could just as easily be fully open for a beautiful Summer evening as it could be completely closed during Winter duration, while retaining facade transparency to enjoy its surroundings.

We assisted the architects in showing how the pavilion would communicate visually with the vineyard in sunny weather and in it’s closed wintery form.

We were given free rein for the images and also in the interior furnishing of the pavilion. For this we decided to go with Branca-Design pieces which fit with the elegant and lightweight language of the small building.
