All the factory walls and solid brick roof vaults are whitewashed, stripping off any previous cladding. They remain visible, with their patinas, marks, and wounds that allow a historical reading. A unique finishing material in the enclosure is combined with flooring, doors, and furniture made of pinewood and white steel for carpentry.

For the exhibition spaces, the furniture has been designed in a way that serves both for exhibition and storage. It has careful lighting and a triple function of lighting for the packaging / corporate image, the different flasks on display, and the surrounding space. Slots to hide porcelain tasters were incorporated into the display shelf. The lighting in the premises has been designed in such a way that it is not present. In this way everything is well lit, emphasizing where appropriate to revalue the spaces and to display the product, which takes center stage in the exhibition area.

The materials, combined with each other, have been chosen to achieve a genuine proposal. They are of local origin and used in coherence with the project. We took into account their characteristics, sensations to the touch, and behaviour with natural light. Those with low environmental impact are prioritized, such as wood for furniture and flooring. Certified from forests managed in an appropriate and respectful way with the environment. Lime and breathable mineral paints regulate humidity, offering healthy and comfortable spaces. Natural cross ventilation from the back patio to the street is favoured. The patio landscaped plenty in a way that improves the quality and temperature of the air. The well-being of people and brings us closer to nature.
