Embedded like a delicate piece of gem on Qingnian Road of Suizhou city, Hubei Province, China, Vine Bar is small bar serving craft beer, fine wine and featured cocktails.

The site is 25 meters in depth while only 6 meters in width, making the available space narrow and dark. In order to efficiently use the depth of the space, we set three platforms rising gradually toward the inner end of the site, which help strengthen the awareness of spatial longitude for the entire interior.

Upon the entrance to the interior is the bar counter. The whole counter area is gently yet clearly defined by a high arched wine rack. One side of the rack is the mixing bar and seating area, while the other side is preserved for beer selection.

Passing the counter toward the deeper interior, there is a completely open area for free seating. Long couches are placed against the wall to the left side; round tables and bar chairs are scattered in the middle; and the armchairs are arranged on the right. An enlarged logo of the bar, which takes the pattern of vines, is also projected onto the wall to the right.

Right adjacent to the free seating area there is a full height round arch. The bottom-left edge of the round arch is bent inward to form an enclosed platform, which is raised 0.6 meters above from the ground. This platform is a small semi-open seating area and it also marks the second level of the interior space. Next to the platform is the aisle, and on the other side of the aisle is an exhibition wall formed naturally by the concaves of different sizes on it to display various art pieces and installations.

The innermost of the space is a semi-closed private compartment with an eye-catching round window opening towards the outside. With lighting around the edge, the round opening becomes a visual element with the most abundant spirituality of the interior space. The private compartment which is 1.2m above the ground is the highest and most intimate area of the entire space. Together with the enclosed sofa sets, and the wine collection exhibited on the back wall, the room becomes a comfortable area for wine tasting and rest.
