Thoughtful planning and design eliminates wasted energies and insures that a structure becomes the building it was intended to be. While the primary use of a building is to provide shelter, the art of architecture is to make the time spent in the space of the structure a positive experience.
Sam Marts Architects & Planners has over the years worked with seven (and counting) different wineries. A timber frame structure makes an excellent choice for a winery facility. Timber frames are efficient structures in that enclose large open spaces. Timber frames are constructed from locally grown materials and naturally fit into an agrarian landscape. We have restored, repaired, relocated, and repurposed existing timber frame barns so that they can become wineries, cideries, and breweries.
