The structural composition is befitting of its natural surroundings, located only a few hundred metres from the ocean’s edge – a raw angular coastline characterized by rocky outcrops, crystal clear saltwater, and clusters of coniferous trees.

Inside, linear runs of glulam beams tie the exterior into the interior and support the roof, while the open plan allows for approximately 4,500sf of retail space, complemented by a smaller mezzanine area. A curved wood tasting bar is centrally located within the store.

A large green wall runs the length of the store, reducing the transfer of heat through the wall and regulating the air quality of the interior space.

The mezzanine area has been designed for the purpose of private tasting events, industry workshops, and neighborhood cultural gatherings.

Here’s a closer look at some of the structural elements, like the windows, the cedar soffit, and the concrete. The angular shards of windows help animate the facade, playfully engaging with the passers-by.
