Sotto Wine Pit
All Entries > Open
Located in the subterranean trattoria, SOTTO, the wine pit pays homage to Italian wine cellars. Wedged between four existing masonry columns, the wine pit was created by carving deeper below the streets of Cincinnati. The decision to recess the wine storage was critical to maintaining sight lines through the restaurant. An alternating tread stair reduces the footprint of the pit while maintaining ease of use. Backlit wine bottles provide a subtle illumination adding to the ambiance of the small space.
