Abbey Road Farm: Tool Shed

Abbey Road Farm was conceived as a multi-purpose venue, able to host all types of events for as few as 4 people, and up to 200 people.  As part of the site transformation, the former equestrian arena was transformed into a winery and event center, including support spaces, and a large flexible space where visitors will have views to winery activities through large interior windows and doors. The atmosphere of the stables was preserved with reuse of finishes and structure, while enhancing the building’s performance.


The former woodworking workshop also got a new lease on its life, as the “Tool Shed,” a rustic venue able to accommodate up to 30 people.


Sustainable features include adaptive reuse of existing buildings, efficient building envelope, daylighting and passive cooling, site and roof top water collection for irrigation. A photovoltaic array is planned for the near-future.
