Inspired by the rural buildings of Napa Valley, this
collection of sheds and gable structures create home,
gallery, and studio. Pulling the structures apart created
galleries for the owner’s extensive art collection, while
framing vineyard view.
Floor-to-ceiling glazing and exterior materials protruding
into interior spaces blur interior boundaries. The stone
wall starts as a backdrop at the auto court and travels
through the building; it provides both an anchor and
visual contrast to the interior display walls.
The wine tower, constructed of 18” thick insulated walls,
is a simple 3-story staircase bordered by a 3,000 bottle
collection and ending at the observation deck. The deck,
complete with refrigerator, music system and elevated
views, offers a unique wine experience.
Low e-glazing, insulation and sun-control shading systems
maintain interior temperatures. Pedestal-mounted solar
panels track the sun and provide energy for radiant floor
heating and electrical needs.
