Tenuta il Quinto Winery

Ubik architecture studio, designed the new wine cellar Il Quinto on the hills of Magliano in Toscana, a small village in the province of Grosseto. Its architecture is intended to enter into mimesis with the landscape and to be discovered little by little as one crosses the estate that hosts it, eschewing any monumental attempt. Through careful study of the landscape, the winery has been positioned to maximize its integration into the countryside, while reducing excavations. Indeed, its volume fits into the existing road network by rejoining the various routes at different levels, avoiding the construction of new roads, in the awareness that in the area of landscape these elements can be more impactful than buildings. The new architecture of the winery is generated through the lines of the existing countryside. An idea that the visitor can clearly read in the metal ribbons that characterise the cellar, which change meaning as they flow, transforming from road to wall, from wall to roof, until they merge back into the farm road network.
