Contemporary wine shope by Fran Silvestre Arquitectos

Valencia-based architectural practice, Fran Silvestre Arquitectos, has designed the Vegamar Selección Wine Shop project. Completed in 2014, the shop is located on Calle Colón, a busy shopping street in the centre of Valencia, Spain.

The architect’s plan was to convey the quality of the exposed products, as well as maximising the sense of space inside the new contemporary commercial shop.

This contemporary shop boasts laminated parquet flooring, black lacquered MDF panels and oozes luxury and sophistication.

According to the architect: “Dark, glossy panels were chosen for vertical surfaces. Due to their tone and reflections, they blur the spatial limits of the establishment, making it seem bigger than what it really is. The colour of this material also refers to the colour of the displayed wines. These vertical surfaces lodge storage space and allow for a regularisation of the available geometry.

“The back of the wine bar contains backlit furniture, which along with the upper mirror optically doubles the perception of space.

“The first area is used for product exhibition. Two horizontal rips in which wines coming from Vegamar wine cellar are presented. These elements along with indirect lighting on the ceiling indicate towards the inside of the shop.

“At the end of the tour – in an area doubling the original width – is where the wine tasting takes place.”
