Vineyard Schmidt at the Lake of Constance

Vineyard Schmidt at the Lake of Constance, by Elmar Ludescher Architekt + Philip Lutz Architektur, Vineyard Schmidt’s orchards and vineyards have been under family ownership for many generations. The surrounding landscape passes from the old village in a basin below to the farmland that rises to the top of a hill and provides a view of Lake Constance and the Swiss mountains in the south.

“At the beginning there was the dream, the hope, and then broke passion and desire. Viticulture at Lake challenged us. The climate, varieties, the mentality, the turmoil of European legislation insurmountable barriers appeared to be. Slowly, very slowly it became a success. Now, after nearly 30 years – is a new, wonderful exciting way our family. The entry of the next generation are thrust and so we dared to invest in a brand new winery. At the top high above our vineyards, which now form the largest contiguous vineyards of the region, created our new operation. Sustainable, modern and nature subordinate. With the new building on Hattnau this dream has become a reality.” – Vineyard Schmidt

A new vineyard will be built on this exposed hill, which will serve both as land for the cultivation of grapes and fruits, and for gastronomy.

The project utilises the difference in elevation between the top of the hill and the surrounding land to place the wine cellar at ground level. On the floor above, the building opens out into a dining terrace, which borders a long-distance trail.

At the front towards the terrace, the wine bar opens out towards Lake of Constance, and two staircases lead from there to the wine tasting room in the loft above, whose large glass façade is protected from the sun by a filter of wooden ribs.
