A wine shop for the everyman

The Kansas City Crossroads resurgence has breathed new life into many historic urban spaces. Once abandoned, the Cellar Rat Wine Shop location underwent a strategic redesign using authentic materials and detailing to preserve the early 1900s feel of the structure, while adding the modern amenities needed to run a successful retail operation.

We worked closely with the client—even collaborating over a few fine bottles in their personal wine cellar! Together, we executed the vision of an open, approachable wine “cellar,” adding personality through the use of salvaged vineyard barrels and boards.
