Wine and cargotecture

We’re starting off the working week sharing with you some awesome photos of a winery in Tasmania.

It’s not just a good drop of wine that is enticing people to visit the Brown Brothers winery in Apslawn, it’s also the mind boggling architecture which was designed by Cumulus Studios.  The main material of the structures being, you guessed it, shipping containers!

Constricted primarily from timber-clad shipping containers, the two structures provide a semi-sheltered space for wine and food sampling, as well as an observation point overlooking the vines and the Freycinet Peninsula on Tasmania’s eastern coast.

The structures are located on a grassy hillside beside the rows of grape vines.

The viewpoint, made from projecting and intersecting shipping containers, is set on the crest of the hill. It is designed to allow visitors to hone in views of the landscape’s distinguishing features.

Makes me want to visit Tasmania! Come for the wine, stay for the cargotecture.
