James Nicholson Wine, Crossgar
Felix O’Hare & Co Ltd was entrusted with the fit-out and redevelopment of a major retail outlet in Crossgar, Co Down. Jim Nicholson Wines is Northern Ireland’s leading independent wine retailer and had been trading independently for 35 years. Dealing in the wholesale side of the Wine catering business, his company had outgrown their existing premises, and acquired a new site in the locality to develop a new shop, support offices and storage warehouses for their thriving business.
The works involved the provision of separating the building into two distinct sections – a mono-pitch large volume warehouse space to the rear, and a simple cedar-clad ‘box’, incorporating the shop and offices, to the front. A double height tessellated glazed entrance screen greets the customer on the main approach route. Internally, we provided the internal fitting-out of the unit, with elements hand-crafted in our own in-house workshop, with oak flooring and bespoke designed veneered joinery elements continuing the warm timber theme throughout.
