A concrete barn in scenic Sonoma County is completely transformed by inserting a new building inside its heavy walls. The new structure uses frameless glass walls to create light-filled interior spaces, while large cuts in the existing walls frame views of the surrounding vineyards. The mixed-use building accommodates work/live units, arts-related offices and other leased spaces. A new plinth, raised above the floodplain of the Russian River, grounds the building and provides panoramic views over the landscape. Outdoor gardens on the arms of this plinth extend like piers into a sea of vineyards.
