Humble Grape Canary Wharf

Trellik Design Studio were commissioned to design the fifth Humble Grape Wine Bar + Kitchen + Shop in Canary Wharf following the success of their previous collaboration on all the other Humble Grapes sites.   The design fuses the retail and dining experiences with a cork shelving system, showcasing the wine collection whilst creating zones of seating that rest within the retail display. This creates an intimate space between the user and the wine whilst being part of a larger space. The use of dark and rich cork textures coupled with warm tones of seating upholstery, metal shelving, and highlights of copper create a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Other zones, like the bar and private dining rooms are all adjacent to the main dining z... More

Work & Living space A

The project includes a training center and a practice for advanced diagnostic imaging in dentistry and is also inhabited by the client and his roommate. The existing house from begin the 20th century is located between two higher apartment buildings and is part of a large urban building block. By filling the gap between the two apartment buildings with an extension, the house harmonizes in scale with its surroundings and contributes to urban densification. The original house and its existing elements were respected and not touched.As the project is located in one of the more expensive districts of Brussels, it was important to use the available space and surface in an intelligent way. In addition to filling up the unused space, the fus... More

Turn The Corner Medical Clinic

This brick beauty was originally the ANZ bank on High St, Northcote. With a formal authority it welcomed people in to make cash transactions. When Tamsin & Chris took on the space they planned to change all that. With a popular existing medical clinic next door, bursting at the seams, they jumped at the chance to create the kind of medical clinic that would celebrate their vision of wellness. Their brief was to make it NOT look or feel like a medical clinic. No white, no foreboding formal reception desk, no hard hose-down-able surfaces.The space was to be warm, inviting & inclusive. With the main patron groups being sexual health & maternal child health, individuals required very different waiting spaces, not one large cent... More

Project • By Blanchette ArchitectesBars


Blanchette Architectes recently designed Minéral, the latest bar project from entrepreneurs and restaurateurs Mathieu Ménard and Steve Grenier. A wine bar by day and a nightclub after dark, the festive space has a particularly discreet atmosphere. It opened on June 27 in the heart of Montreal’s Gay Village.   The starting point was simple: a musical title for each of the three distinct ambiances that succeed each other as the night goes on. Based on that idea, the design team imagined a space whose atmosphere could change radically from its late-afternoon opening to its late-night peak.   Light as raw material“As they emanate from the architecture, light and colours become raw materials that fill the...

Project • By Studio ForwardBars


Le Cattive, inside Palazzo Butera, is a space with multiple functions, that is today a place dedicated to wine culture but it will become the cafeteria of the museum, when opened. Thanks to the collaboration with Arch. Giovanni Cappelletti, we designed a contemporary space, that doesn't deny its historical soul. The space has a central entrance, with two different desks that identify the cafeteria space and the wine bar space. The floors have been partially recovered from the original floor of Palazzo Butera terrace, putting an emphasis on longitude, while the wine caveau, light and modern, is the real exhibition space.

The Dalmar

In Fort Lauderdale, The Dalmar, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel, offers guests a downtown alternative to the city’s beachside destinations. DesignAgency worked with the Wurzak Hotel Group to both conceptualize the brand, the interiors, and everything from the signage to the flip-flops that can be used throughout your stay to present a unified vision of the hotel as a topical urban oasis for where business and pleasure travelers can come together with local residents in The Dalmar’s laid back, open-air surroundings.   The design team recognized that the needs of both Fort Lauderdale travellers and local residents were evolving. The Dalmar offers a 209-room urban counterpart to conventional Fort Lauderdale beach hotels, and estab... More

Sawmill Market

Sawmill Market is a contemporary interpretation of an unsung New Mexico — a place synonymous with electric pink sunsets, bleached white cow skulls, pinon pine and the otherworldly landscapes immortalized by Georgia O’Keeffe and D.H. Lawrence. Together with owner Jim Long (Heritage Hotels and Resorts) and F&B Concept Developers Lauren and Jason Greene (The Grove Cafe), Islyn Studio drew directly from the rich cultural heritage of the Land of Enchantment to create Sawmill Market, a food hall, culinary laboratory and homage to the cultural imagination of New Mexico.   Transformed from a sprawling and sunlit lumber warehouse in the Sawmill District, just a stone’s throw from Albuquerque's original settlement of Old...

Autentista Wine Bar

The original assignment was to transform the vaulted interior of an Old Town house into an inviting and cosy place dedicated to the exquisite taste of natural wines. In other words, to fit the purpose of the AutentistaWine Bar. Mr Bogdan Trojak and Mr Antonín Suchánek, the bar owners (not to mention the men behind the successful wine festival “Praha pijevíno” or “Prague drinks wine”), expressed their wish to create a space with an atmosphere that would be in harmony with the wines. Authentic wines are a luxury, so the idea was for it to be just as luxurious as the product itself, yet still simple and natural, for such is the reality of authentic wine production.   By definition, a natural...

Project • By Rina LovkoWineries


We easily found a mutual language with the art director of Balthazar and reached an understanding of the audience. This made it possible to quickly outline the concept, to understand what kind of institution it would be and start the building process. The building of the Bessarabian market (a.k.a. Bessarabka) is a monument of architecture. It is under the protection of UNESCO, that is, no changes can be made. Any architectural decision should be coordinated with the administration of the building and with the city – this paperwork remains time. Therefore, the reconstruction of the premises lasted a year and a half. From the very beginning, we were faced with a limited height of arches – 1.6 meters. And this is still without wo... More

TRA house in a citycenter

In the historic centre of a well-preserved village, opposite the church, a wine barn and its adjoining house were to be restructured in order to create an intimate and special living environment. Features of heritage and prestige remained in the existing house: the stone staircase, the cement tiles, and the wooden roof framing, while the barn’s large volume and minimalist forms have turned into an open-plan and fluid living space, opening right up to the exterior through a square patio at the rear.   The existing house space is given over to the bedrooms, whereas the old wine barn welcomes the everyday family life activities. The archetypal barn form, all in one long structure, successively provides the kitchen, living room and... More

Pullman Wine Bar

With Pullman Wine Bar & Merchant, David Machado Restaurants brings a new concept to Portland’s Lloyd District. Located in the southwest corner of the Hotel Eastlund, Pullman occupies a formerly empty retail space facing the Convention Center. To accommodate a range of functions—retail shop, tasting bar, private dining room, and prep kitchen—the design reclaims further square footage from the hotel parking garage. The sequence of spaces progresses from public to private and creates a range of experiences in less than two thousand square feet.  The wine shop sells bottles as well as ships by the case nationally, while the bar focuses on select wines from the Pacific Northwest. The wine inventory is developed and ma... More
