Yountville Town Center

The heart of local community life in Yountville is the Town Square surrounded by a community hall, recreation center, library, post office, sheriff’s office, demonstration kitchen, and public gardens.

Through a fusion of architecture and landscape, a portico of deep covered porches and raised bio-filtration planters embrace the recessed Town Square Plaza, utilized as the community’s living room.  A former roadbed is reclaimed as a garden, calming traffic and creating a marker for the Town Square with a safe multi-modal accessible street crossing for young and old alike. The decade-long community design process resulted in a public epicenter embodying the distinctive local, cultural, agricultural, oenological, and ecological identity of this Napa community.
