Square Footage: 10,000
Nestled in the existing vineyard, production and energy efficiency was a key component to our in-house design team when constructing 2Hawk Winery’s 10,000 square foot state-of-the-art wine producing facility. Some of the features to this split-level design include roof-mounted solar panels, which will produce 70-100% of the energy required in the facility, and a 12-foot high split-level to help facilitate the grape processing and fermentation, utilizing gravity instead on mechanical pumps. The facility is oriented to provide a shaded open-air work area and take advantage of both solar access and natural day-lighting. The design includes a state-of-the-art wine testing lab, storage and shipping areas, along with space for private wine-tasting events held periodically throughout the year.
