kakheti nature of light for 'akhasheni resort'.


akhasheni is an appellation for wines produced around akhasheni village, gurjaani district, kakheti region in eastern georgia. a majestic place, rich in natural landscapes mostly characterized by vineyards and is home to the project by michele de lucchi, a complex of buildings used for hotelerie. the contrast between light and shadow is accentuated to the maximum, giving to the complex a theatrical and at the same time a magical atmosphere. linear systems are hidden in the earth and integrated into the architectural elements, so as to create dynamic architectures and light emitters. the mission of centropolis design is to bring into light the architecture and materiality of the place. the light is integrated into the architecture. no light source is visible.Where architecture is an installation and the installation is the light itself. the light is coming from nowhere and the buildings are like big lamps.
