We've covered several extraordinary projects by Polish design studio Mode:Lina Architekci, including a bakery that uses recycled baking trays as wall tiles, Apple’s new retail store built with reused fruit packaging, and a pop-up store comprised of 900 cardboard tubes. The team's most recent project is a wine shop in Poznań made from shipping pallets, and it may well be our favorite.
The wine shop has bottles from many different parts of the world, an accessories department, and a tapas bar with tasting area. Visitors can buy wine, taste some chorizo and stay to become a pro wine taster for a day. The space is divided into single areas designed using typical wooden wine racks as modules and single planks. The color palette is adequate and is inspired by various shades of wine.
The architects conceived a new facade that features an exposed shop window and designed elevation with white and black painted pallets. The building’s form was simplified with a bright new skin, and finally, the designers exposed the Fiesta del Vino steel logo to create a new character for what promises to be an inspiring new environment.
