TRANSFORMED A MODEST
BARN IN NAPA INTO A
BY REED WRIGHT
PHOTOGRAPHS BY MATTHEW MILLMAN
A barn that stood on art collectors Cindy and Howard Rachofsky’s
Napa Valley vineyard for a century, was moved recently, after they
acquired the 7-acre property to spend summers away from Dallas
where they live. In its new location, it serves as an airy entertainment
pavilion. Although the original barn, intended for drying hay, was
left intact with light and air passing through its slatted structure,
architect William Duff of San Francisco provided it with a new concrete plinth that allows outdoor dining terraces around it. Inside, a
dining area for smaller parties is centered between two new, mirrored
cabins that reflect the bronze trestle and wood-top table by BDDW
infinitely; one cabin contains a service kitchen and the other a gym.
Views ricocheting in the interior include the surrounding vineyards,
an organic garden and other farmhouse buildings on the property.
