The shop has been transformed into a long, warmly contemporary finished space that is covered with 2100 oak panels, which are engraved with labels of famous wine brands.

The space is flanked by cabinet walls that the oak panels do a good job at hiding.

Wine boxes are stored inside the cabinets, and cutout sections function as displays for over 300 different bottles of wine.
