'Encuentro Guadalupe' is a California winery that sits atop Ensenada overlooking the Valle de Guadalupe. The large property is designed to be a tourist area that includes vineyards, a hotel, restaurants and residences. Encuentro Guadalupe also houses an elaborate event space that can be used as a venue for events like weddings, birthdays and parties.
The architectural direction of the entire space was to respect nature as much as possible. One way this was achieved was through the use of steel-cladding covers which provide the open-air space a roof. The steel-cladding is designed not to make contact with the ground and its natural surroundings. The goal for the California winery was to provide a place that protected its natural environment while also providing comfort for guests and visitors.
