This contemporary project is located at the end of a single lane road cut into a hillside, on a dry west-facing slope near Juliaetta, Idaho.
To restore the pioneer vineyard for use, the two structures incorporate innovative construction methods in response to unique site requirements.
The location presented a number of challenges: temperatures that can reach 110+degrees F, periodic river flooding, and limited access for construction equipment. A strong energy conservation agenda was also an important requirement and the building forms were influenced by the site and environmental conditions.
