VEGAMAR SELECCIÓN WINE SHOP in Valencia, Spain by FRAN SILVESTRE ARQUITECTOS

Vegamar Selección Wine Shop, located on the main shopping street of town, is a space for wine tasting and sales.
The project aims to transmit the quality of the exposed products, as well as to maximize the feeling of amplitude inside the shop.
Dark, glossy panels are chosen for vertical surfaces. Due to their tone and reflections, they blur the spatial limits of the establishment, making it seem bigger than what it really is. The colour of this material also refers to the colour of the displayed wines. These vertical surfaces lodge storage space and allow for a regularization of the available geometry.
The back of the wine bar contains backlit furniture which – along with the upper mirror – optically doubles the perception of space.
The first area is used for product exhibition. Two horizontal rips in which wines coming from Vegamar wine cellar are presented. These elements along with indirect lighting on the ceiling, indicate towards the inside of the shop.
At the end of the tour – in an area doubling the original width – is where the wine tasting takes place.
