Wine celler and tasting room 

Description

Energy consultancy and M&E design for a wine cellar and tasting room in the Priorat region, Tarragona, designed by architect Èlia Vaqué.

The winery consists of two modules, one underground, where wine is aged, and another above ground, where tastings are held: a total of 290 m2 gross floor area.

Praxis has undertaken a thermodynamic and daylighting study of the buildings, using DesignBuilder (EnergyPlus & Radiance), assessing temperature and relative humidity conditions in the wine cellar and analysing the risk of summer overheating in the tasting room. The results have been used in the design of the thermal envelope.
