Walden Center // Geyserville, California

Renovation and adaptive re-use of an existing concrete barn located in scenic Sonoma County to provide a office and live/work space.  The building is completely transformed by inserting a new glass building inside the heavy walls, creating interior spaces infused with light.  The building sits on a new plinth raised above the floodplain of the Russian River with views of the outdoor gardens.  Our energy analysis resulted in a building that exceeds California’s 1998 energy code by 30%.
