A to Z Blogging Challenge - Y


A to Z April (2022) Blogging Challenge


Hello, dear readers!

I’d like to thank you all in advance for stopping by, and I hope that at least a few on my list of remarkable buildings pique your interest as they did mine.

Yountville Town Center

When it came time for an upgrade, the architects at Siegel and Strain knew just how to design a building that would seamlessly blend old and new, nature and architecture in the heart of Napa Valley’s wine country. As a result, the Yountville Town Center received the 2010 “Savings by Design” award of honor, AIA California’s highest award.

If I were to spend a day strolling this 1.5 square mile town, I’d hope to catch an event going on at the center, wouldn’t you? 


  1. Such a beautiful ceiling! Architecture always fascinates me. Thank you for the virtual tour to a place I haven't been to.

    1. That's what caught my eye as well. Plus, the letter Y ;-)

  2. >>... "AIA California’s highest award"

    I didn't realize you used that kind of language, dIEDRE.

    I was referring to "Cal******a", not "AIA". ;^)

    1. Ha! Not as a rule, my friend ;-) It's a gorgeous building, the name of which begins with the letter Y ;-)

  3. Nice practical looking facility.
