The brief called for the interior design of a shop, of a promotion and of a wine-tasting area in a recently constructed winery in Santorini. In order to achieve a functional layout, the requested spaces were arranged around the existing kitchen volume. The layout leads the visitor firstly through the shop, then around the kitchen volume into the promotion division and ends up in the wine-tasting area.
The design included a range of custom made furnishings as counters, display cases, tables, etc. The furnishings were made mainly of steel and wood. Black steel sheets, corrugated or not, were used for wall cladding, for the construction of the counters and for some of the display cases. Rough wooden planks formed the countertops, the walls of the shop and the false ceiling of the wine-tasting area. Plywood sheets were used for the rest of the display cases. Volcanic stones collected on site fill up the promotion area countertop. Tables with steel profile frames and rough wood surfaces were designed for the wine-tasting area. LED lights were used for both general and ambient lighting.
