Wine Shop & Tasting Bar 2,000 sf Oakland, CA 2015

 Located in a 1920s brick building near Jack London Square, Minimo focuses on smaller winemakers and features a monthly "crush" on wines with a story.  We worked with the owner to create a light and airy space for browsing bottles and an inviting tasting bar that feels like a destination, not an afterthought. The space recedes as a sumptuous but subdued background for the jewel-like rows of wine. Bottles are set off against cubic forms of oiled Ash and our own hand-blown glass lighting.
