AZ Awards 2022 Finalist: Hill Country Wine Cave by Clayton Korte

The best thing about the Hill Country Wine Cave in southeastern Texas is that it’s sited in an actual cave. Before designing the structure, the architects at Clayton Korte captured a 3D scan of the cavern. They then custom-designed the architectural volume as an insert that could easily slide into the cave, like a ship into a bottle. Wood and concrete finishes imbue the space with warmth, but there’s plenty of exposed limestone, too — a reminder that this was a collaborative design effort in which nature was enlisted as a participant.
