Designed by San Francisco-based firm BAR Architects, the Law Winery presents an honest display of construction materials—steel, concrete, timber—that evokes the winery's own methodology: channeling the natural flavor profile of their grapes with minimal manipulation. The facility's look and feel are defined by a massive wall of wreathing steel, dramatic sloped roofs, and ample reinforced concrete. Sustainable features, however, are hidden in plain sight: landscaped plants were selected for their low-water needs while the roofs harvest rainwater and—thanks to solar panels—electricity as well.
Below, the architect's video tour (warning: has sound) and more photos.
