Michael Tauber | Executive Architect
Founded in 2004, Michael Tauber Architecture combines an appreciation of soul and spirit with a scientific desire to understand how things work. Over the years, the firm has designed and managed everything from single-family homes to apartments, laboratories and civic buildings. “I believe that Architecture should be a reflection of the site that it sits in. Architecture should be integrated with the land and enhance the perception of the best qualities of the surroundings that it lies within. At St Helena, the natural beauty of the land – the mountain to the west and the valley floor to the east, are elements which inspired the design team. The buildings are designed to frame and capture these various landscapes as well as firmly situate you amidst the vineyard in the Napa Valley, the heart of the wine country. Roofs sit in juxtaposition to the hills but are layered in the same way that the mountains terrain is layered. The materials of the site – the golden hues of the earth and the ruggedness of the rocks of the mountains become a point of departure for the materials outside and within the building. Earth tones and subtle grays play up these connections while lighter tones become the frames that direct views to the site. Every element on the property is intended to balance the feeling of connection to the land and the juxtaposition of the craft of man-made form.”
