Jason Naiman Makes Top 10 Green Projects

Jason Naiman, interior design faculty, served as consultant on the Stoller Family Estate winery tasting room, one of the Top 10 Green Projects of 2012, according to Interior Design magazine.

Naiman and his firm, Group Jake Collaborative Design, consulted on the project led by Ernest Munch Architect Urban Planner.

Excerpt from Interior Design magazine, October 1, 2012:

In Oregon's Willamette Valley, Stoller Family Estate is also continuing its LEED-certified design efforts with recent opening of its new tasting room. Designed by Ernest R. Munch Architect Urban Planner of Portland, the same firm that designed its winery in 2006 (the first to be LEED Gold-Certified in the U.S.), the 4,000-square-foot building features 236 solar panels on its roof and support columns salvaged from an old Portland warehouse. The panels, manufactured in the U.S. by SunPower, generate 100 percent of the tasting room's electricity.

Also of note is the undulating wood ceiling, which mimics the rolling hills of the vineyard and is accented by small pendulant lights meant to represent evening stars. It is reclaimed timber from the 2002 Biscuit Fire that scorched more than 500,000 acres in Southern Oregon. A wall of north-facing floor-to-ceiling windows provides natural light (artificial lighting is controlled by motion sensors) and vineyard views.

"We take the preservation of our agricultural land very seriously," says Bill Stoller, who founded the winery in 1993. "Our new tasting room continues this tradition by integrating environmental conservation and sustainability with high-efficiency design."
