PROJECT II: Wine Shop and Harry Gordon's Bar
BRIEF: Create an authentic, modern wine store and bar that invites the shopper to stay, try and buy fine wines, spirits, champagne and cigars
ABOUT: The Wine Shop is a generous 340sqm department within Selfridges that features the ‘Harry Gordon’s Bar’ at the heart of the space. The glowing treasure of the bar is defined by an architectural open steel frame wall, with amber reeded glass at low level, that gives a warm modern touch.
The limited material palette of multiply, cork, and contrasting black frame and burnt oak cladding gives a well stocked retail space a consolidated and simplistic look and feel. The product is enlivened by the dedicated lighting to each shelf. Other materials include a white marble bar, contrasting with burnt oak. High level matt black pendent lights with gold lined interiors add drama to the high level space.
