Simple and utilitarian, exposed concrete and reclaimed wood offer edgy, industrial-style appeal suited to the site’s SoMa locale.
Flexible and welcoming
Simple materials were reworked with consideration for an aesthetic that feels casual and approachable without being vernacular.
Reclaimed and reinvented
Charred wood and stainless steel take inspiration from traditional cooper’s barrels and the tanks found in the adjoining bottling room.
A certain intimacy
A feature wall tiled with green wine bottles softens the space, while thematically connecting it to the bottling and production room.
Stripped back to its warehouse shell and redesigned throughout with considered simplicity, Tank 18 is an expansive but welcoming multi-use space that transplants the traditional winery into the urban context. Configurable and custom, the furnishings are designed to create a sense of low-key flexibility, while up-styled decor fashioned from materials used in viticulture reiterates the brand’s approachable nature.
