Edwardian meets modern architecture on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula

Located on the Mornington Peninsula south of Melbourne, Willow Creek Vineyard is the site for a new Cellar Door and Bistro designed by Carr. The architecture and interior of the Cellar Door and Bistro reflects a strong contemporary design that sits embedded in the rural landscape adjacent to the original Edwardian house.

The new architectural façade consists of a simple glazed box enveloped by a steel mesh overlay providing a distinct new entry to the Cellar Door Tasting Rooms and Bistro. A large pivot door on entry is a striking element and directs guests to a 10 metre long bluestone tasting bench that pierces the façade acting as tasting bench internally and set down externally.

Interior and exterior materials, fixtures and fittings maintain a rustic, authentic aesthetic with the predominance of oak and stone creating a firm sense of place and creating an ambience particular to the surroundings.
