Located in the centre of Rotterdam the 4 storey wine store has been transformed into a space clad with laser engraved oak panels. The store 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.
Designed by Studio AAAN 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.
