View of tank room from vines
Exploded axonometric showing components of tank room design
Occupying a lush vineyard in the arid hills above Lake Chelan in eastern Washington state, this design provides a new facility for a growing winery.
The first phase of the project, shown above, called for a simple tank room production facility which could be expanded as the winery grew. We designed a simple steel structure with two sloping roofs which created a form that opened up to the dramatic landscape. The structure is clad in translucent polycarbonate panels which fill the simple building with a pleasant, even light.
The tank room features glass garage doors and large windows which encourage guests to learn about the winemaking process. The building is oriented in a long, linear group parallel to the vines.
