December 2, 2019 – Weathering steel, photovoltaic roof system highlights self-sufficient equipment barn. A simple agricultural structure sits at the toes of the 50-acre James Berry Vineyard and adjacent winery that sits just 800 feet away. Located in the Templeton Gap area of Paso Robles, Calif., the Saxum Vineyard equipment barn is completely self-sufficient, operating independently from the energy grid, therefore maximizing the structure’s survivability and resilience. The barn provides a covered, open-air storage for farming equipment, workshop and maintenance space, and storage for livestock supplies. As the foremost structure present upon entering the vineyard-lined property, Brian Korte, AIA, partner at Clayton & Little, San Antonio, says it speaks to the winery’s commitment to sustainability and subservience to the natural landscape.
