Belenko Design Studio have transformed this 19th-century cellar into Shustov Brandy Museum and Bar.
The space is darky and moody, creating both a mysterious and intimate atmosphere. As you enter the space, patrons are greeted by a truly spectacular lighting installation of an estimated 20, 000 brandy bottles, a design feature which instantly grasps attention yet compliments the shapes and shadows created by the unique wall coverings. In the bar, real barrel tops completely cover the walls and are ingeniously accentuated by spotlights allowing the walls to take on an entirely new texture.
Belenko Design Studio especially designed Shustov’s bespoke chairs which are accompanied with reclaimed oak table tops to complete the space, highlighting the character of the interior and nodding its head to the history of the once-was cellar.
