  Firm:  Nelson Byrd Woltz Landscape Architects   Role:  Senior Designer   Location:  Healdsburg, California   Completion:   2010   Collaborators:  Wick Design, San Francisco California,  Wade Design, Earthtone Construction   For the Medlock Ames Tasting Room, Dorothy was the Senior Designer at Nelson Byrd Woltz Landscape Architects. The Alexander Valley Store, in Healdsburg, CA, a landmark for the town, was purchased by a local biodynamic vineyard. The program was to design a tasting room and bar, with a landscape that supported their organic wine practice, both functionally and philisophically.   The grade of the site was raised, and all stormwater drained into central bioswales, giving stormwater a major role in organizing the site.  Drawing from farm materials, the palette of galvanized steel and recycled wood slats from an existing fence worked with both the interior and exterior of the tasting room.  Repurposed telephone poles create a space for a table with a galvanized wine trough. The poles reference the vineyards wine support systems and create a flexible space. The poles are tucked in 30 year old olive trees, salvaged from a former olive orchard, creating a playful interplay between the olive trees and the poles. Throughout the site, the material language is simple and direct: Galvanized steel, repurposed wood, board formed concrete and concrete pavement.
