The Granary redevelopment preserves this piece of the City’s agricultural past, while providing a “gateway” project at the northeast entry to the downtown. Adjacent to the train depot the building is now home to Weston Miles Architects, a community space, a restaurant, and additional offices. The redevelopment focused on sustainable design, a core tenet of WMA.
Renovating the granary involved more than simple redesign. Great care was taken to preserve the building's integrity and character while developing it into an integrated structure that
These goals were achieved by designing an adaptive reuse of the existing building, retaining the Granary’s form, structure and foundation. The project transformed a drafty, dark industrial building into an efficient, bright structure using Savings by Design and LEED criteria in addition to traditional design practices. The project received Designer and Owner incentives from the Savings by Design program and is LEED Gold Certified.
The Granary is a LEED Gold Certified adaptive reuse project designed by Weston Miles Architects. This award winning building showcased Morgan Hill’s agricultural tradition while demonstrating the principles of sustainable design.
