Cellar 360 at Ghirardelli Square

  • Northern California

Cellar 360 is a retail environment featuring wine tasting, a charcuterie, retail sales, a demonstration kitchen and event space located in the Woolen Mill Building at historic Ghirardelli Square in the heart of San Francisco’s waterfront. ARG developed a flexible space that can be configured to host the variety of uses while also preserving and maintaining the historic fabric of the structure. The small space (6,200 sf) was designed to be visually cohesive and a backlit overhead recycled wine bottle ceiling element unifies the space while drawing visitors from the entry through the space. This modern retail setting integrated the industrial building's original heavy timber structural system while preserving and incorporating historic columns, original 6 inch thick wood plank floor, original brick walls and heavy timber ceiling structure.
