La Gravera is a winery conceived under low cost criteria, where the optimization in energy and material means and resources become important. Economic sustainability usually comes together with environmental sustainability.

A warehouse of the 58, belonging to an old gravel quarry industry, is recovered to reactivate and transform it into a winery, through the disposal of industrial elements.

The construction elements must keep in scale economy and mass production, to minimize its impact on the environment and consequently to the economy, as well as they are organized under spatial, functional and higrothermal design criteria.

The project is structured regarding the following points: a four-meter-high closet that organizes the service spaces, the action centre where human activity is assisted by machines and the zona 900, a welcome lounge with a striped carpet and a bright ceiling, underneath which the cellar is located, and where the control unit monitorizes the vineyard in real-time, while the design and pedagogy of the wine takes place.

In conclusion, this low cost criteria force us to claim: less (money) is more!
