This former equestrian arena was transformed into a winery and event center. Functions include a winery, tasting room, support spaces, and large flexible space. Visitors will have views to winery activities through large interior windows and doors. The atmosphere of the stables was preserved with reuse of finishes and structure, while enhancing the building’s performance.


Sustainable features include adaptive reuse of existing buildings, efficient building envelope, daylighting and passive cooling, site and roof top water collection for irrigation. A photovoltaic array is planned for the near-future.
