Artisan Cellars - Environmental Design

Award: Graphite Pencil

Graphite Pencil / Environmental Design / Retail & Services / 2009

This cellar is as much a conversation piece as the wine it stores: 400 bottles of luxury cuvée wines are contained in a 3m x 6m cement block, extruding from the shop into the public space. The focus is the dramatic angular tunnel and its top-rate gems. The design of Artisan Cellars, a high-end wine retail space specialising in small production vineyards, stands in contrast to other cookie-cutter cellar spaces. Wine-worthy quotes by renowned writers are etched into understated white-washed walls. The simplicity and crispness of the surroundings give emphasis to the ten-seater tasting room, which will play host to a series of cosy wine tasting sessions for discerning groups.
