Vineyard building Köbelin, Eichstetten am Kaiserstuhl

HEMP-FIBRE INSULATION | Capatect System Natur+


Modern architecture lends a face to quality-orientated wine-growing. A remarkable example is the vintner’s building of Arndt Köbelin, surrounded by the unique cultural landscape of the Kaiserstuhl region of the Upper Rhine Valley. Here, the architect, Thomas Martin, designed a modern, puristic building, which emphasises its features through a subtle artistic style and matched materials. The material combination of white render and wood characterises the appearance of the facade. Some parts were insulated with hemp-fibre insulation panels from Caparol. The central meeting place in the building is the well-lit degustation and sales room. It provides an invitation to tarry a while in the lounge with its open fire. The planners mainly used typical materials from wine-growing for the design of the in terior. Oak wood, glass, loess, galvanised steel and vintner’s wire.
