This thesis examines the adaptive reuse of a late 19th century grain elevator in Washington State into a luxury Bed and Breakfast. This grain elevator, once a source of civic pride and an economic engine for the community, has been abandoned as the economy of Eastern Washington has transitioned from predominately grain production to include grape growing and wine production. The grain elevator is located adjacent to acres of vineyards and the design incorporates not only the architectural elements of the elevator but derives inspiration from the surrounding wine country.
