Domaine Anderson Winery
Famed architect Howard Backen designed the original winery, now owned by Roederer Estate, without a tasting room. PDR transformed the winemaker’s lab into an inviting space for visitors to relax and enjoy the wines.
Mendocino County’s natural surroundings inspired the project colors: silver-blue serpentine rock, glittering lichen, and earthy redwoods. Elegant finishes, such as the sparkling glass tile, the dazzling blue wall covering, and the hand-hammered steel panels, reinforce the serpentine’s essence. Many repurposed elements were added to reflect the ruggedness of the area, such as the weathered wood planks and the many versions of the reconstructed wine tasting sticks (as seen in the bar tops and wainscoting). Creative use of lighting enhanced the many elegant yet rustic details. Photographs from the winery and the local surroundings adorn the walls. PDR prioritized working with local craftsmen for the unique detailing of the space.
