The consultancy was approached by the client for the project in summer 2010 on the strength of its previous work, and began work in October 2010.

Blacksheep co-founder Tim Mutton says, ‘[The client] was looking to do something quite new to the market. It’s paying homage to food and drink as being the hero, and looking to create an all-day atmosphere.’

Blacksheep will use a colour palette of off-whites, silvers and golds, aiming to create a ‘subtle retail atmosphere’ in which to showcase the wines on sale.

Mutton says, ‘We’re keeping it very simple and classic with some nice traditional detailing. We used a lot of honest materials like timber.’

He adds, ‘The French always have a certain element of philosophy behind what they do – it’s about understanding the products, then you go in to design the space from that.’

Galoupet will open in May.
