Bread shop - Kreis turns Grau

SOMAA takes on the architectural heritage of the legendary Stuttgart wine shop Kreis


For a long time, the Kreis wine shop was the host in the small corner shop in the historic König von England house on Schillerplatz in Stuttgart, where the first hotel in Stuttgart used to be and where Chopin stayed. Now the Grau bakery is following in the footsteps of the established wine shop and is providing it previous concept on its head without completely discarding it. While everything used to revolve around wine, wine tasting and its sale, baked goods and fine sandwiches are now the protagonists. There is still wine.

For SOMAA, this task is an exciting challenge from two perspectives. On the one hand because the design of the former wine shop has already set the highest standards and on the other hand because of the small size of only 35 square meters of guest room and sales area.
