Two contemporary barn-style structures provide 9400 square feet of office space for local businesses and non-profits on a parcel at the edge of downtown St. Helena, CA.
The site lies just within the town’s urban limit line, demarcating light industrial and agricultural uses, located along the railroad a half-mile northwest of the downtown core. The intervening distance includes remnant parcels, historically attached to the rail right of way, that have the potential to extend public space and development opportunities along the tracks.
Together with coordinated improvements to the adjacent rail corridor, the site design buffers neighboring light industrial, vineyard, and residential uses.
Clad in traditional board and batten and formed with simple contemporary lines, a barn and an annex open to a promenade along the tracks with a series of large folding doors.
