the architects employed the arch to serve as a central motif throughout the design, alluding to wooden barrels of wine cellars, bottles of wine, and antique vaulted cellars. the juxtaposed arches spatially define the venue both vertically and horizontally, forming a a dynamic store for exhibiting, tasting and browsing a refined collection of wine.

three materials define the space: wood, stone, and mirror 

 

 

the architects carefully chose materials which would magnify the experiential qualities of their store. wood is used for the ribs system, implying the wooden barrels of wine vaults. stone is used for the flooring alluding to antique cellars and mirrors are used to generate amplitude and an atmospheric world of reflections.
