The continuous space is flanked by two cabinet walls with niches, cupboards and amenities. Wine boxes are stored inside the cabinets, large cutouts function as displays for over 300 different bottles of wine. Service areas like storage, toilets and an office are concealed behind the wall. The result is a clear and spacious shop with a strong focus on the wines.

The cabinets are clad with oak panels which are engraved with labels of famous and desirable wine houses. The rear walls of the wine display cutouts show the original brickwork from the foundation of the 17th century VOC shipyard (Dutch East India Company).

The 200 square meter shop, consists of four levels; a basement, ground floor, mezzanine and first floor. In addition to the main retail space, the shop features a small bar, a kitchen, a tasting area and a cellar. The lowly lit wine cellar has an intriguing atmosphere while the other floors are bright and generous. Careful integration of daylight from above balances the perception of the entrance and the mezzanine in the back.
