Project Complete : The Wedding Barn

Located in Sonoma, CA, this large property is a picturesque vista of green vineyard and blue sky, with a contemporary farmhouse picked out in white. Adjacent is our most recently completed project: a barn, which from the outside is unassuming and and stained to look like an long-time feature of the landscape.

At almost 4000 square feet this is the largest building we have ever designed. The proportions of most windows and doors are oversized so that from a distance the barn looks proportional to itself and the surrounding landscape. The facades are stained plywood board and batts with oil-rubbed bronze fixtures, while the roof is a corrugated sheet metal to complete the impression of an unassuming, agricultural building.
Our clients were fantastic to work with and they had a clear vision for the interior aesthetic from day one. Reclaimed corrugated steel wainscoting, oversized barn doors and the continuation of the oil-rubbed bronze fixtures on the inside. 
The vaulted main hall allows for plenty of natural light to flood in through the upstairs windows, which reflects from the white ceiling to keep it even brighter. The wrap-around mezzanine used for speeches during festivities also acts as a storage buffer when the barn needs to transform into an event space.
From the main hall the whole volume feels cathedral-like, with the different layered materials amplifying that effect. The space is designed to seat 40 people at a single table, centered on the view out to the vineyard at one end, and on an oversized bar behind stained barn doors on the other.
