Cayucos Ridge Barn

Cayucos, California

Flanking 30 acres of Syrah vineyard along the Santa Lucia Range, this simple wood-skinned barn houses vineyard farming equipment, grape picking bins, tool storage, and an open-air workshop area.

An off-the-grid structure, roof mounted crystalline PV modules recharge a battery bank located in the barn. The vineyard manager and occasional guests experience the Coastal Live Oak filled woods to the east and the vineyard on the west.

Materials are selected for their simple elegance and long-term durability. Cedar siding and weathering steel clad the building skin. Interior spaces are paneled with raw plywood and contrast the painted cabinetry.
