Multi-use Shop/Bar

A Wine Flagship Store

,

A house built in mid 1900s will be refurbished and transformed into a wine flagship store. It will support shopping, drinking, eating and learning facilities. Interior concept includes a 6m high by 10m long wine wall made of 6000 discarded wine bottles illuminated by computerized LED lights to highlight world wine map as part of education effort. Existing aluminum glass facades and main core will be fully conserved except for few additional reinforced structures. A spatial connection between ground and upper floor is established by connecting both floors to the central bar area. Interior design also includes a series of mid-50s furniture and fitting to match branding of a classic foreign embassy atmosphere. The end result is a mixture of industrial loftiness and a mid-century optimism.
