Superimpose designed an exclusive members club and hidden wine cellar for a wine enthusiast. The project is situated at the top floor of one of Beijing’s newest and most high-end tower developments, the Genesis Community. Genesis Beijing is a mixed-use development combining a hotel, offices, gardens and a museum by Japanese Architect Tadao Ando. The members club will only be accessible to a private and selected group of members.
A segment of the central divider is constructed with dark mirrored glass which mirrors the skyline and hides the ‘Sky Cellar’. This ‘Sky Cellar’ is a designed to be a reinterpretation of the traditional wine cellar. Members access into the hidden exclusive wine cellar through the automated sliding glass doors. During day time, the mirrored glass doors hide the wine cellar and protects the wines from direct sunlight. The mirror doors allow members to admire both the wine and skyline whilst being inside the wine cellar. At sunset and during evening hours, the wine cellar lights up and reveals the 500 wine bottles to the main space.
