Terracotta Winery
This is up to now the project I liked most and had great expectation in China. The Client was also Grace Vineyard. The President had a wish to bring the wine culture to Xian. In 2009, the President invited me to visit a site at 2km north of the world heritage “Terracotta Warrior” at Lintong, Xian. The site had been a stepping farmland but was abandoned for many years. Surrounding the site was layers of mountains, sometimes visible and sometimes blurred in mist, much like a poetic ink painting. The design of this winery respects the land forms and minimize excavations. The building clusters co-exist with the land and do not shout loudly to disturb the quiet environment.

The cluster of buildings include the reception hall, art gallery, wine fermentation plant, restaurant, office and back of house, landscape, president’s villa and a boutique hotel. Unfortunately, the project was suspended in 2011 due to unforeseen obstacles in Xian.

德靈酒庄
這个項目是我到目前为止,在国内最喜欢及期待的項目。客户同样是怡园庄,庄主打算將葡萄酒文化带到西安。2009年,庄主邀请我到西安臨潼兵马俑以北两公里的山坡一起選址。西安是文化旅游重点,而這块地山巒重叠,仿如山水畫的水墨意境,是一片優美凈土。這块地原是農耕梯田,已荒废多年,但仍保留著一级一级的地型特色。我這設計以尊重原来地貌及山影作原則,建筑群按地形適度設計,不作喧嘩式的突出,不要大量挖掘土地,而且要跟山影和谐融合。

建筑群的功能包括接待大樓,艺术走廊,葡萄酒生產車間,地下酒窖,餐厅,辦公及後勤,户外花房,园林設計,庄主别墅,及精品酒店。可惜項目于两年后因为其他不明朗因素而未能建成。
