Designed by architect Richard Shugar of 2Form Architecture, this tasting room in Oregon was completed in 2013. Originally on the site of a dairy farm, the winery’s new building uses reclaimed materials from the old barn and sits on a hill with panoramic views. A small patio cantilevers over a pond that laps against the south side of the building, and guests can enjoy wine on the expansive patio. Sloping roof planes extend from the building and also allow rainwater runoff to be collected for irrigation and to fill up the adjacent pond.

“We’ve probably made about 50 tables in the last nine months,” said Thorpe-Bauer.

Bauer Barrel tables are made of a reclaimed wine barrel, which is cut in half and mounted on a base. A tabletop is then placed on the open side of the barrel to complete the table.

“Each wine barrel has a story behind it. You know the type of wine that was in it,” she said. “People get really excited which makes us really excited.”
