On the one hand, we adhere to a rather orthodox restoration, based on preservation; on the other hand, we embrace a more experimental – and unusual – approach which fully rethinks the initial structure.
– Ondřej Chybík
Chybik + Kristof have created a wine bar and tasting room in a converted 19th-century brewery and its adjacent 1970s technical space by employing two distinct approaches to renovation.

House of Wine is located in Znojmo, Czech Republic, and comprises the two spaces with very different heritages.

The original brewery building has been treated as a heritage site, with its fabric restored and preserved, but little in the way of architectural changes made.

The interior of the more recent technical building, meanwhile, has been filled with curved wooden volumes that divide the space vertically and horizontally into new areas for people to sit.

Windows have also been added in different places to provide views of the nearby churches, town and river valley.

Chybik + Kristof, co-founder of Ondřej Chybík, said: The House of Wine challenges traditional notions of restoration of historical buildings. The presence of two distinct structures, each with its own history and original function, inspired us to adopt likewise distinct approaches to renovation.

"On the one hand, we adhere to a rather orthodox restoration, based on preservation; on the other hand, we embrace a more experimental – and unusual – approach which fully rethinks the initial structure. In doing so, we immerse ourselves in the town's heritage and landscape, while establishing the House of Wine as a part, a reconciliation and a continuation of its architectural history."
