As Architects we are faced with the challenges of meeting all sorts of local and federal codes and regulations while solving the design problems that our clients approach us with in each and every project.  In recent years the number of challenges we face has increased exponentially with the requirements of “green” or “sustainable” design movements.  In California we have incorporated a Green Building Code into our standard level of practice, and at Asquared Studios, we have found that with the growing pains for accepting what these means to design solutions waining, the silver linings are rising.  A whole new world of research, materials, and technology has opened up.  For example, we have been provided the opportunity to become more aware of the trends in the automobile industry to provide alternate fuel vehicles to the market.  One of the largest influences on the industry is Tesla Motors.  With their technology reaching into the future, the accessories and services they offer inspire attractive solutions to the requirements we now face in the design of preferred parking and charging areas at commercial + public building designs.

At our recently completed design for the Mending Wall Winery, we feel proud to have had the opportunity to be introduced to the charging units and services that Tesla provides it’s customers.  The owners of Mending Wall had the foresight to not only move forward with the installation of the now required electric vehicle charging stations in the visitor parking area, but to make one of these stations the modern and attractive Tesla specific charging station.  Now, Tesla driving visitors can find their way to the Mending Wall Winery and enjoy an exceptional tasting experience and all the while charging their vehicle.  See the Tesla website for all available Tesla specific charging stations.
