Zinnyard

Fredonia Township Marshall, Michigan / United States of America

The intent of this vineyard was to design with the natural environment in mind. We played on the existing features of the land (such as the hedgerows and linear nature of the grapes) to design the houses. The existing hedgerows created neighborhoods for the land, which were designated by flowers (as seen in the turnaround and site plan). We designed the guest houses to be inside the grapes themselves and showcase dramatic views, but to use local/natural materials to use less waste and have a low impact on the site. In the end, the design is all about the experience and the intent was to be in harmony, and to live within the surroundings.
