Tierra Tinta, a unique residential development by COA Arquitectura, immerses its residents in the heart of the wine experience by offering lots nestled among vineyards and a landscape that harmonizes with the grape cycle. The project features a low-budget, rapidly constructed pavilion to promote the development and host pre-sale events and tastings. This pavilion showcases the materiality proposed for the other buildings within the development, employing a modular design that adapts to different needs.
With carefully considered orientations and pivoting panels, the pavilion maximizes views, sun protection, and ventilation while blending seamlessly with its vineyard surroundings. The minimalist material palette of rusty metal, inked pine wood, and dark gray granite further accentuates the development’s connection to the landscape and its core concept.

Text by the Architects
Tierra Tinta is a residential development that seeks to involve its inhabitants and users in the wine experience with lots between vineyards, in a concept of total integration with the landscape and the grape cycle.
The commission consisted of a pavilion of rapid execution and low budget for promoting the housing development, pre-sale events, tastings, etc., which served as an example of the materiality proposed for the other buildings inside the development.
Opened to the north and west, overlooking the vineyard and Cerro del Muerto. Closed to the south and east as sun protection and at the same time as the back to a service bar and an appendix for the bathroom core.
A structural grid of angles at the corners and steel squared tubes at the base, columns, and header was defined, which supports the secondary light structure for the corrugated steel roof panel.
To close the space and at the same time respond to the grid, a modular panel was designed. It consists of a square steel tube frame with a corrugated steel sheet on one side and wood planks on the other, which depending on the case, some of these modules are fixed, and some pivot.
The pivoting panels regulate sunlight, ventilation and views that are lined with the vineyard.
The materiality was then reduced to rusty metal, inked pine wood, and dark gray granite for the service bar and sink.
