A/L/I seniors win competition

American Instutite of Architects student competition

Architecture/Landscape/Interiors seniors Thomas Acosta and Steve Peraza won 1st Place/$10,000.00 in the American Institute of Architects/Los Angeles Chapter, Interior Architecture Committee's 22nd Annual 1:2 Student Competition.

 

Students participated in the competition as teams of two, from twelve Southern California programs of architecture, interior and environmental design. The competition lasted from 8:30-3:30, and teams were mentored by local design professionals. The program was for the renovation of a shed next to a Sonoma County winery to hold its wine library, wine tasting bar, private tasting room with custom chandelier, merchandise sales, office, storage and patio.
Thomas and Steve won for their evocative project “Mountain Vista Wine,” that extended the landscape of Sonoma into the existing shed with a series of wooden ribs that both fill and create the spaces. The wine library is displayed between the ribs; the office, cash wrap and a restroom are embedded within volumes carved out of the ribs; and the wine tasting bar is located on a continuous surface resting on the bottom of the ribs. The hill-like curvature of the ribs was inverted to form a mezzanine-level private tasting room with its custom chandelier formed at/by the termination of the ribs at the ceiling.
