The pavilion Desom in Remich, Luxembourg serves the presentation and tasting of wine. The first floor contains a wine shop, a bar with kitchen, restrooms and storage facilities, and a large seating area. The pavilion is situated between the Mosel River, the vineyards, and the home of the Desom family. The pavilion has a distinguished appearance alligning with the natural and built context of the domain. The form of the building is deconstructed by taking into account the topographical characteristics of the surrounding landscape.Its front opens up towards the river; the large glass façade intensifies the relation between the river promenade and the space of the pavilion. The terrace in front of the building generates a generous patio in order to approach the building. The terrace invites people to enjoy the wine tasting in relation to an appealing scenery. The materiality of the building is inspired by the materials used in the production of wine: the wooden barrels and tanks made of stainless steel. A notable technical feature of the pavilion is the movable awning, which can be automatically removed and hidden behind elements of the façade.
