Asterisk Winery By SAKO Architects.
Only one road has access to the Asterisk. The road crosses over the lake with a small bridge upon appraoching the winery, allowing cars to drop guests off at the loop driveway closest to the lobby. On the property, Sako designed a wine showroom, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, underground winery, basement, lobby, and the central multifunctional space.
The highest point of the Aluminum plate roof is in the center of the Asterisk, then the roof slopes down towards the five tips of the asterisk prawns – giving the structure more of a starfish shape, than the shape of a 3 dimensional asterisk. Inside, creamy white walls become the canvas for minimalistic furniture and a captivating sprawling timber roof.
