MARIDAJE Wine Center in La Rioja – Isabel Rivas & Javier Ureña

It truly doesn’t get any better when you combine architecture, wine, and the beautiful wine country of Spain.  It is a rich culture and lifestyle that surrounds these vineyards, that is heavily inundated with Spain’s love for gourmet cuisine.  Isabel Rivas & Javier Ureña set out create a space actually within the landscape to stand as an actual cultural center dedicated to this culinary experience.  The design doesn’t become an object within the country side, but emerges out of the hillside as a natural moment.  Check it out after the jump!
