"To accentuate [the] seamless connection to the outdoors, we created a pair of retractable glass walls that meet at the corner. The effect when open is one of completely dissolving the corner and creating a feeling of being surrounded by nature," describes Maniscalco.
"The creation of a 'functionally active' series of retaining walls with our colleagues at Surfacedesign activates the space for use with an outdoor fireplace, bar-b-que, and climbing wall," notes Maniscalco.

Located in Rutherford, California, Quintessa Winery has a longstanding commitment to creating modern architecture that complements rather than competes with the landscape. When the Huneeus family sought to add three pavilions for private wine tastings to the estate, they wanted the structures to offer protection from the sun, wind, and heat without imposing on the land or coming between the visitor and the vineyard. Greg Warner, Principal/Owner, LEED AP, and Michael McCabe, Associate Principal,  LEED AP, from Walker Warner Architects worked on the project. "Our response was a series of three 250-square-foot open air roofed structures, set amid the oak forest on a ridge-line overlooking the rolling vineyard-covered hills and the lake beyond," they say. "The clean, modern lines and visual simplicity of the pavilions serve as a backdrop to the tasting experience and as a frame to the landscape beyond while also sheltering visitors from the elements." Lutkso Associates served as the landscape architects for the pavilions.
