Michael Unwin has been making wine for thirty-five years. He travelled through Europe working with some of the highest regard experts in the field and now owns a beautiful winery in Windermere, Victoria.  

The brief

Michael came to us with an idea for a new cost-effective winery shed consisting of three separate structures. We needed to work with his architect and head contractor to value-engineer separate shed structures that appeared to be connected externally.

Challenges and solutions 

To solve the client's requirement of having the sheds built separately but appearing connected, large overhanging eaves were introduced into the design. Our building design team needed to design and engineer the eave overhangs to maximise cost-effectiveness whilst maintaining the client's aesthetical requirements.
