Nestled at the base of Horse Heaven Hills in Prosser, Ste. Michelle added a 2700 SF addition to an existing warehouse for the new 14 Hands Winery tasting room. A new gable barn structure was pressed into the existing concrete tilt-up manufacturing facility. The corner of the existing structure was removed to create a second story mezzanine and office space that was set at a diagonal from the tasting room below. The new gable barn was formed by a modulated series of heavy timber frames. Each frame was constructed of glu-laminated column/beams connected at the joints by wide flange steel beams. Featuring a beautiful tasting bar, plenty of lounging space and a unique working barrel room, the building’s rustic design stayed true to the Yakima region with the use of reclaimed barn wood and recycled materials.
