This tasting room is located in Yamhill, Oregon in a lovely pastoral setting of rolling, vine-covered hills. The building was designed by Eugene firm 2form Architecture and is surrounded by a meditation garden by Kurisu International, designers of Portland’s Japanese Gardens. Our role in the project was to select interior finish materials and furniture In our design work we wanted to bring together two contrasting elements: one, the very modern design of the building with its simple material palette of concrete blocks, glass, and steel; and the other, the bright, colorful warmth evoked by the name “saffron fields” as well as the deep, rich wines being served.
The senior designer for the Saffron Fields project was Em Shepard.
