Oxbow Public Market is a specialty food marketplace showcasing local artisan food and wine producers, located in Napa’s Oxbow district adjacent to the Napa River.
The Market Hall, a contemporary low-slung metal shed building, and the terra-cotta block-clad Wine Pavilion, take their cues from classic agricultural building typology, and use pre-engineered metal building technology for their open-span interiors. Located in a flood plain, the building by necessity sits atop a podium, which created an opportunity for a wrap-around promenade that encourages market activity at the exterior.
The exterior is made up of durable, industrial materials such as terra cotta block, board-formed concrete, steel and glass. The Market’s northern deck takes full advantage of the site’s proximity to the River.
