Brancott Estate

A broad gravel-ballasted roof plane extends over interior and exterior spaces set into a rising spur of land on Brancott Vineyard. Sandblasted concrete panels with aggregate from the local valleys form the walls of the structure. Dining spaces, tasting facilities and private hosting and meeting spaces take in the outlook over the valley floor. Glazed panels framed in blackened steel are shaded by broad overhangs of the roof plane.
