A citizenry of bottles

Architecture is conceived in relation
to use. It emerges as a response to the
daily choreography, rituals, character, preferences and tastes of its inhabitants.
In the case of this project for a Champagne house, these considerations extend to a citizenry of bottles — a citizenry charged with its own powerful history, culture and rhythms — whose repeating forms populate the physical and emotional spaces at the heart of this site.
