Modern Brick Pattern at a Winery

Modern Brick Pattern at a Winery

The wine cellar addition to the Martha und Daniel Gantenbein Winery in Fläsch, Switzerland features a unique patterned brick wall. The bricks allow light to filter into the interior — they are rotated within a concrete frame in a seemingly irregular pattern that take the shape of overlapping circular bubbles from a distance...

The absence of an clear repeating pattern has A Daily Dose of Architecture suggesting robot masons — I will remain skeptical of that theory and assume that the panels are prefabricated individually (by machine) and delivered assembled.

The winery's addition was designed by Bearth & Deplazes Architekten and won a Wienerberger Brick Award in 2008.
