The Tasting Rooms

Reston, VA & Chevy Chase, MD, National Harbor, Md. 2010


The Tasting Rooms are retail satellites conceived by John Kent Cooke who is the founder and owner of The Boxwood Winery, which also designed by Jacobsen Architecture. The materials, scale and millwork were all designed by Simon Jacobsen to mirror the unusual discipline of the "mothership" winery, Boxwood

A unique steel reinforced egg-crate wine case adorns every Tasting Room as well the distinctive lighting and stainless steel elements found there as well.
