Liezele, a small hamlet 30 minutes south of Antwerp, is a fertile area where small agricultural farmsteads are traditionally growing asparagus, where green fields, small streams, aligned with rows of willow- or poplar trees are defining the structure and mood of this beautiful rural Flemish landscape.
"Valcke Vleug"，这条小溪/小河是酒庄的分界线，也是酒庄的名字，是旧时该地区典型的鸟类 "猎鹰的飞翔"，说明了丰富的自然风光，说明了这个地方的特色。在这个特定的地点，靠近主人的房子，正是这个特点开始了 "一生一次的项目 "的建设：一个享乐主义的庄园，允许种植4.2公顷的凉爽气候的葡萄酒，在大自然中享受骑马，与家人和朋友享受生活和文化的各个方面。
“Valcke Vleug”, the small stream/brook dividing and giving name to the VV winery, is “the flight of the Falcons” in old days typical birds in the area, an illustration of the rich natural beauty, an illustration of the character of the place. It’s this character on this specific location, close to the owners house, that starts the building of ‘a once in a lifetime project’ : an hedonistic estate that allows to grow 4,2 hectares of cool climate wines , to enjoy horse-riding in nature and enjoy life and culture in all its aspects with family and friends.
由Vincent Van Duysen所设计的建筑风格与佛兰芒农场的传统一样，具有典型的形式和坚固的功能，同样的建筑元素是该地被拆除的芦笋农场的一部分，但也是几个世纪以来农村遗产的一个组成部分。水平的大谷仓，是传统农场建筑的典型特征，现在与一个小而垂直的现代农舍结合在一起，它们共同创造了一个新的层次结构，与开阔景观中强烈的水平线进行对话。
The architecture by Vincent Van Duysen is embedded in the same tradition of Flemish Farmsteads, archetypical in its form and sturdy functional in its setting, the same building elements were part of the demolished asparagus farm on the site, but also have been an integral part of the rural heritage for centuries before. The horizontal grand barn, typical for the traditional farm buildings is now combined with a small but vertical modern farmhouse and together they create a new hierarchy which dialogues with the strong horizontal lines in the open landscape.
The barn and the tower are the protagonists of the place and are defining, together with 4 massive concrete volumes, the central court, the heart of the winery, where all activity of Valcke Vleug Estate finds place. An open air empty square that gives hierarchy and organizes the farm , a place to gather the grapes during harvest or linking the wine tasting functions with the natural surroundings, the core of the project that allows for events or for quiet moments when the farmer, after a hard day at work, enjoys sunset when resting on the long wooden bench.
由Daniel De Belder设计的长椅是将宏大的建筑体量嵌入到人的尺度中的一部分，即使长椅有时长达8米，也会让人觉得比例协调，并在整个建筑项目中创造 "时刻"，享乐主义而又清醒的体验正在占据着这个项目。De Belder的巨大木质元素似乎与Van Duysen的建筑体量共同作用，最大限度地提高了游客对景观的体验，将建筑的位置与Valcke Vleug溪流联系起来，并与房子附近的古老宏伟的橡树联系起来，组织最佳日落景观的方向等等。......但事实上，这是另一种方式，该项目嵌入了自然之美，并通过增加50多棵新种植的杨树、柳树、樱桃树和榛树，证明了新农场与自然环境长期融合的意图。
The benches, designed by Daniel De Belder, are part of embedding the grand architectural volumes to the human scale, even if the benches are sometimes 8 meters long, they feel in proportion and are creating ‘moments’ in the overall architectural project where the hedonistic, yet sober experience is taking over. It seems that the massive wooden elements of De Belder work together with the architectural volumes of Van Duysen to maximize the experience of the visitor towards the landscape, to link the buildings position to the Valcke Vleug stream and to relate the old magnificent oak close to the house, to organize the orientation towards the best sunset views etc. … but as a matter of fact, it is the other way around, the project embeds to the natural beauty and by adding more than 50 newly planted poplar, willow, cherry and hazel trees it gives proof of the intention of the long-term integration of the new farm in its natural setting.
风土的颜色，Valcke Vleug的土壤已经激发了选择的熔岩石软雕塑的访问道路和中央法院。这是一个重要的方面，酒厂的土壤和农场的功能软塑之间的板块是无形的，colortone延续到混凝土基础，地板和墙壁。似乎建筑体量是其土壤自然特性的一部分（对于酿酒师们所说的 "风土 "是如此重要），它让土壤和建筑之间、室内和室外空间之间得以延续，上面只有金属包覆的黑色木质屋顶结构。
The color of the terroir, the soil of Valcke Vleug has inspired the selection of the lava stone soft scaping of the access roads and central court. This is an important aspect, the boarder between winery soil and functional soft scaping of the farm is invisible and the colortone continues into the concrete foundation, floors and walls. It seems that the architectural volume is part of its natural character of the soil (so important for the ‘terroir’ winemakers are referring to), it allows a continuation between the soil and the architectural, between the indoor and outdoor spaces, with only the metal clad black wooden roof structure above.
谷仓的百叶窗和农舍的覆面也使用了同样的黑色可持续发展的欧洲落叶松木材。黑色是指 "佛兰芒谷仓 "传统上用煤焦油涂抹的颜色，以保护木质结构的长久性。这种传统的颜色与周围绿意盎然的环境形成了鲜明的对比，使项目具有鲜明、前卫的现代特征。
The same black colored wood of sustainable European Larch is used for the shutters of the barn and the cladding of the farm house. The black color refers to the “Flemish Barns” traditionally painted in coal tar to protect wooden structures for long time. A tradition of color that adds contrast to the green lush surroundings and giving the projects its sharp, edgy contemporary character.
The farm house and its private life is protected behind the concrete walls at the central court. The rooftop terrace gives a view on the far surroundings, overviews the farmstead activity and the winery beyond. This experience is in all rooms part of the private life, window bays give light and view , also at living room level where the ground floor is softly raised, just above 1 meter, to emphasize the experience of the owner , a long distance perspective on the strong horizontal landscape created by the 17.000 vines. This is an experience that relates the manmade farmland geometry with the beauty of the architectural form of volumes and into the sharp lines of its interiors.
The interior spaces are a continuity of the architectural language, the rough concrete floors are functional and yet warm sober at the same time, the open structural black wooden roof structures seem to merge into black wooden wall cladding, furniture and grand open fires, all elements creating spaces where wine tasting feels protected in an open shelter or where the wooden or stainless steel wine barrels are waiting for the next generation of Valcke Vleug wines to come .
