Wine's is a gastro-bar that bets on the architectural legacy of Mogilev, a city in eastern Belarus to create a unique experience. The bar occupies the ground floor of one of the best preserved early soviet era buildings in the city center.
The team at Silent Architecture were tasked with designing a project that would incorporate and deal with the many historical layers present in the space.
From its architecture, the 96m2 bar inherited arched windows and heavy brick walls, a layer left exposed to reminisce the past and to witness the future.
Layering was the key operation of the design work. This was done by putting together materials already present and missing into an extensive palette.
Raw (brick, metal), Gray (concrete, plaster) and Polished materials (paint, tile) attempt to recreate the experience of wine, without having to leave the city center, by taking the form of custom wall panels in the green of a grape leaf, or in the wooden rails that spread along the ceiling, similar to the branches of a grape plant.
The bar also features costume lighting solutions and a bespoke wine rack designed by the architects.
