The veredict of 2017’s Tile of Spain Awards took place on 24th of November in Castellón, with the prestigious architect Iñaki Ábalos as the jury chairman and Ángela García de Paredes, Víctor Navarro, Bak Gordon, Moisés Puente, Martín Azúa and Ramón Monfort as other jury members.
The architects Víctor Rahola and Jorge Vidal were the winners of the 16th ASCER’s Tile of Spain Award’s first prize for their project Mont-Ras Winery in Girona in the Architecture category. Mont-Ras Winery is a space evolving from the essence of wine, ground and grapes. It was designed as a platform inside the earth with four main spaces and a roof-garden, taking in consideration all the specific conditions required for the wine production and conservation. The jury highlighted the appropriate use of the materials to the industrial and also rustic character of the program and its adaptation to different geometries.
In the Interior Design category the judges decided to award first prize to the project Three metro stations L9 Barcelona by Garcés-de Seta-Bonet Arquitectes. In the Degree Project category the winner was Un jardín de paisajes: recuperación del entorno de la Muralla Zirí en el Albaicín by Rafael López-Toribio Moreno from ETSA Granada.
