Allen Construction, Santa Barbara, CA
Our challenge was to transform a former warehouse into an upscale wine tasting room. The client wanted us to fill the space with natural light, bring nature in, create educational opportunities, and make visitors feel welcome and comfortable. The owner envisioned an urban space transformed into an inviting spot with vineyard influences. The process was organic with heavy involvement by all team members; one that evolved with the project. Finish materials include reclaimed Douglas Fir harvested in 1912, local stone, metal and “Olivia,” a live olive tree. We modified every inch of the space during the remodel.
