Vinosyviandas (Wine Shop) by Miguel Crespo Picot
2017 - 2018, Platinum A' Interior Space and Exhibition Design Award Winner
The inspiration of this space comes from many ways, on the one hand: the searching of the wine imaginary and its sales spaces provide us an approach to the materiality of the antique cellars by stone, the wooden barrels and the wine reflections. On the other hand, regarding the shape project, the circumference is another inspiration due to its continuous presence in the wine world e.g. in the wooden barrels, bottles and the vaulted cellars.
It is our attempt to abstract the formal wine world in a manner which the space is created as a continuous formal changer only using pure shapes such as the circumference. The juxtaposition of several circumferences in both directions creates a space, which linearly will be seen as vaults, where the required situations appear organically such as the counter, tasting table and exhibition-sale space in consonance with the materials used such as wood, stone and the mirror reflections atmosphere.
Design Challenges
Historically, Spain has a strong bond with the wine imaginary and because of that, the project uses the materials to intensify that. 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 mirror are used to recreate the wine reflections.
Production Technology
There are three materials: wood for the ribs system as the barrels, stone for the floor as the antique cellars, and the mirror material which generates amplitude and an atmospheric world of reflections where those circumferences seem to contain some kind of liquid. The realization technology of the space is performed by the cutting process of oak wood boards and assembling them in a way that people can perceive the space as a sequence of wooden ribs where the circumference is present.
