Located in a ground-floor street facing shop space of an office complex within the Singapore CBD, Auterra is a wine retail and tasting space designed to be a sensorial experience that evokes the allure and flavours of wine. Intended to be a physical retail offshoot of an online wine distributor, focus was placed on creating moments for in-person interaction and the building of long term relationship with and among the customers.

Drawing on the idea of terroir, the space is defined by soft sinuous curves bathed in earthy deep red tones, dividing the long shop space into various cavernous sections with a moody and atmospheric ambience that changes according to the time of day.

The journey begins at the Sommelier’s counter in the middle, where guests are invited to browse the wine list or to explore the selection physically in the cellar space at the back, with advice available from the sommelier. Guests can buy the wines off the cellar to take-out, but are welcome to casually enjoy them on the spot or within the warm and intimate ambience of one of the sitting areas and the standing counter spaces.
