A wall with 3 curved surfaces was designed to softly wrap around itself at the center of the space on the ground and 1st floor of the existing building, built during the 18th century. Inside the building, customers can see the superposition of cheese selling spaces and degustation spaces through the holes in the walls, like trough a piece(space) of cheese cellar.
In the very narrow space of the ground floor, customers can enjoy the view while tasting cheese: a large refrigerated display cabinet displaying 350 varieties of cheese. Customers can select cheeses in the refrigerated cabinet and savor them in the room. Stairs nested inside the central curved wall give access to the restaurant on the first floor. The furniture is square shaped and the room has view on an open kitchen.
The space is furnished with tables and chairs and customers can select wines while enjoying a raclette or a cheese fondue. The restaurant with an open kitchen has been design to host various events such as cheese seminars, wine classes or cooking classes.
