Chateau Barde-Haut

 This is totaly appropriate post for September days :) What alse to see in Autum than a winery, going on wine tasting and also see modern architecture. Well, this winery, by Nadau Lavergne Architects is located in Saint Emilion, France. Oui, Le Chateau Barde-Haut is a 17 hectare domain and the building is rehabilitated former winery made of traditional stone. The contradiction between contempory architecture is traditional stone as a base and rusty steel coating of a facade. Inner part is of course modern so that both past and present seems to collide perfectly. Oh, and did you noticed the wine-glass lights? Thoughtful and hilarious detail that only contributes to the value of this winery. Salute!
