Project Description

The premise of Press Club: provide a space where employees of select local wineries can showcase their wares in a setting that will keep bringing patrons back for more. A small retail space on the ground level gives way to a 7,000-square-foot basement level with a tapas bar and two wine halls for tasting. The resulting space pairs natural materials—black walnut wood, cork wall and ceiling coverings—with more industrial finishes such as concrete and steel. To reduce noise, a black acoustic blanket is attached to the ceiling above the soffits to dampen the inevitable echoes of a space with very little soft-surfacing. Each of eight winery stations is defined by subtle stainless steel signs and bottle displays. Behind each station, a lit display case shows the wines available.
