COMPLEX CITY shared with us their Wine Concept Store which is focused around three basic concepts: the vertical, the visual, and sensitivity. The image of the vine and its linearity are the starting point of this verticality that is reflected in the facade while the curve expresses a sensitivity related to a sensory awareness that takes place during the taste of wine. More images and architects’ description after the break.

The gradient color is characteristic of white wine, rosé and red in the sense of knowledge as accurate as imaginary and symbolic, aesthetic, but, subjective, but the image of wine revealing himself to “Voire” in a journey towards a personal world. Treated with everyday life’s themes with wood and white background, this marks the vertical and horizontal view.
