Industrial building of the Year 2010 with Sapa Building System

Sapa Building System AB has supplied building systems to the industrial building of the year 2010 in Hungary: Laposa vineyard.

The Laposa vineyard in Hungary consists of three buildings - a wine hotel, a wine restaurant and a wine cellar. The wine cellar has been awarded Building of the Year, category industrial buildings.

Sapa Hungarian producer Nordikal Kft. has installed glass roof systems Sapa 5050 on the façade that turns into a glass roof with opening devices. Inside the building, internal glass wall sections of the system Sapa 1050 have been installed. On the façade, a specially designed sun shade has been installed using Sapa fittings. On the hotel, a large number of Sapa windows 1074 have been installed and the restaurant is equipped with the Sapa 4150 façade system.

Several interesting details give personality to the building's appearance.
The aluminum profiles used for the façade of the wine cellar have no surface treatment whatsoever because the architect wanted to use natural materials. The raw, sticky and a bit dirty appearance of the extrusions reinforces the impression that the building is an industrial building – explains the architectural firm Atelier Péter Kis. This trend has already taken place also at some design buildings.

Concrete panels in the building envelope are neatly patterned with vines ranging from ground to roof. The pattern of grapevine branches out even to the sun shades that are mounted onto the façade glazing. The sun shade is composed of perforated steel panels that let in dim light in the building.
