A Japanese master of architecture

Visit the
Tadao Ando Art Centre

In the heart of Provence at Château La Coste and enjoy an extraordinary sensory experience.

The Japanese master of architecture has designed a setting in which to enjoy art in natural surroundings, playing with materials and textures.

Built in a V shape, the building reflects light and creates a real sense of space with its imposing bay windows.

Tadao Ando has created smooth concrete walls with a sculptural feel for a building with geometric lines, framing and a variety of reflections.

The Japanese architect wanted to create a work of art which would intertwine with nature, inspired by Cézanne’s paintings and with a real sense of humility, something which is particularly important to Château La Coste

One of its V-shaped wings houses the reception area and the bookshop.

The other wing of this V-shaped building is home to the Tadao Ando restaurant which overlooks the water and the vineyards.
