hanging ditch wine merchants

stephenson STUDIO brief was to create a space that showcased Hanging Ditch Wine Merchant’s extensive wine selection and also satisfied the offering of a wine bar and wine retailer.  The challenge faced bysStephenson STUDIO was to incorporate all the necessary components into the 43 m² ground floor shop and 32 m² cellar of the narrow Victorian unit.  The solution was to create a “library of wine” shelving system along the entire rear wall of the shop.  A monochrome material pallet of black MDF and white marble against a rough sawn oak floor create a juxtaposition of high spec and inexpensive materials.
