Light Commercial Less Than 5,000 Square Feet T he 1,740-sq.-ft. Alma Rose Tasting Room is a former warehouse space transformed into an up- scale wine tasting room flled with natural light to create a welcom- ing, comfortable atmosphere. Instead of a large bar in the main tasting area, wine guides pour at small tasting tables with 30- by 40-in. reclaimed Douglas fr slabs. Metal bases with diatomite rocks serve as foot rests, and a 19-ft. re- claimed Douglas fr bench pro- vides additional seating. Te orig- inal concrete foor was repolished and left exposed. To help with noise, a sound engineer recom- mended 45 10-ft.-long perforated steel panels hung 17 ft. above the fnished foor to absorb, rather than refect, sound so customers could enjoy quiet conversation. Gauze material above the panels further absorbs sound. A 1,600-lb. sliding entry door with four re- tractable wood-framed glass pan- els needed a special team of labor- ers and lifts to properly hang. Another challenge was safely in- stalling Olivia — a live, three-ton olive tree — which was brought in through the fnished entry door, over the fnished foor, and re- quired a special reach fork lift and 12 people to coordinate the proper placement. Te owner also re- quested a substantial chimney to match the grandeur of a Rumford freplace. After the Rumford was in place, a 10-ft.-tall, 700-lb. steel industrial pipe was carefully in- stalled to house the three-wall chimney required by code. | GOLD & JUDGES' VISION ALLEN CONSTRUCTION SANTA BARBARA, CALIF. buildallen.com Project name: Wine Tasting Room Tenant Improvement Location: Buellton, Calif.
