A NEW LOOK FOR AN OLD WINERY
Ballande Meneret is a unique Bordeaux producing vineyard tucked deep within the woods of the Medoc Peninsula. Last year, the wine makers acquired a 100,000 square foot warehouse, which would act as the headquarters to preserve and export classified growths. Ballande Meneret brought on local architect team Baggio Piechaud to revamp the warehouse. Patrick and Anne Baggio Piechaud wanted to shy away from the traditional look of vineyards. In doing so they imagined a large white concrete building with spots of LED lights shining through the facade. A shallow body of water surrounds the white structure, reflecting the LEDs and enhancing the beauty of the building.
