According to the site characteristics and program requirements, the underground floor serves as the wine cellar for wine collection, and the ground floor connecting with the road serves as the production space. The production space is stretched along the linear site with a series of compartments following the production sequence: rice soaking, cooking, fermentation mixing, filtering, squeezing, high-temperature cooking, sterilization, and product packaging. This series of processes formed the spatial rhythm of the whole building. A parallel covered walkway provides viewing corridor for visitors, as well as open public lounge for villagers.
