Project description from Group 41 :
This project for a tenant space in the new Oxbow Public Marketplace in Napa is the only fully organic and sustainable ice cream facility in the region. The Oxbow project was completed in Napa in December of 2007 by the same developers who did the San Francisco Ferry Building. Group 41s charge in 2008 was to create a fully “green” and “eco-friendly” design to respect the organic product being sold there. 100% post-consumer recycled materials, and 3-form “eco-resin” panels are employed, backlit so that they glow from within. A full ice-cream production facility was also compactly designed into the tiny back-of-house space, still meeting all health code requirements. A factory facility has been completed in Petaluma and will provide national distribution of the product.
