December 23, 2019 – The project by US firm, Clayton & Little for a small but elegant agricultural structure in California was recognised with a 2019 National Small Project Award from the American Institute of Architects (AIA). The simple, off-the-grid structure features repurposed industrial commodity parts for its structural parts.

We’ve become accustomed to seeing awesome-looking wineries because many estates invest in architecture as their business card. But it’s really rare to see the same attention for the buildings used to serve the actual winemaking production. Clayton & Little, an architecture studio based in Austin, Texas, and with offices in San Antonio, California designed an agricultural equipment storage structure for Saxum Vineyards, in the Templeton Gap area of West Paso Robles, California and it is a true gem of farm architecture and sustainability.
