We engaged Studio S2 Architects to assist Wirra Wirra in creating an environment that would enable us to transition our cellar door from a tasting room to a wine tourism destination.

The result has positively transformed our historical site and provided us with a capability to compete as a world-class wine tourism destination.

The information that you have provided us with is so informative and applicable to our specific project. The insight and knowledge in your guides have not only answered many questions but have been a great learning experience. Your guides have pointed many things out to us that we did not think of, they made some great suggestions and provided us with data and facts that were relevant to our project. Most importantly they have inspired us to make changes and improve the overall design.

The various tool sets and fact sheets available free, and on-line, are but one example of how Studio S2 has reached out to advise, assist and encourage those contemplating building or upgrading cellar doors, visitor information centres; hotels and accommodation solutions.

Chris Byrne – Riverland Wine

The Cellar Door and café created a sense of space and light and a very inviting experience for visitors. Our foot traffic increased by 30% in year one as we became a destination of choice for locals and visitors alike, who now choose to spend significantly more time engaging with our site and our brand.

...the office layout is working very well – I couldn’t be happier with the outcome – has made a big and positive cultural difference in the way we work and in the relationships in the office

Paul Madden – CE – Wyatt Trust

It was important for us that the Cellar Door became not just a comfortable place to taste wine, but also enticed customers to purchase. The re-design has created a visually appealing display area for wine and merchandise, generating additional impulse sales, while creating additional space for customers to move around the room. It is apparent that our customers are lingering longer and moving between the café and the tasting area as the design allows for easy traffic flow and a sense of integration

Every time I walk in the gate, I am excited about the house and this keeps going as I enter the house with a smile on my face. Studio S2 Architects did an amazing job and the outcome is just what I wanted - it is more impressive than I ever imagined.

Private Residential Client

Choosing Studio S2 for our interior design was the best decision we ever made. ... Amy spent many hours thoroughly investigating ... and got a real grasp on the make up of Eden. You can really feel that when you enter our space. She created a stunningly beautiful Visitor Centre, that has exceptional practical use, fitted into the building perfectly, took into consideration everything (including traffic flow and maximising retail sales and other revenue streams) but also made it uniquely Eden.
As far as recommending them - honestly, you'd be crazy to use anyone else!

Clair Mudaliar – Manager – Eden Visitor Information Centre

We LOVE our space! And so do our customers. We still get so many positive comments from visitors how inviting our centre is. We notice they stay longer and interact and engage so much better with our team.

Jo Seabrook – Manager Tourism Services – The Barossa Council

Our beautiful cellar door and gardens are lush and vibrant. It is all thanks to some amazing local businesses!
