A vineyard in the south of France is home to Richard Rogers’ last project – an art gallery that juts precariously from a hilltop site.
Rogers retired in September 2020, after 43 years at the helm of Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, which he co-founded in the late 1970s.
The eponymously named Richard Rogers Drawing Gallery is his last contribution to the firm’s work and is located on the Chateau La Coste vineyard – which also serves as an and art and architecture destination and houses several other works by high profile architects including Tadao Ando and Renzo Piano.
The gallery is wrapped in a bright orange framework and cantilevers 27 metres from the supporting hillside. From its sparse, all-white interior visitors can see across to the Luberon mountains, through the treetops that surround the building.
