Natural light into the fermentation cellar needs to be controlled. The building massing that will benefit from natural light, such as retail, lobby and office spaces are situated in south and west facing directions, concealing the fermentation cellar from areas with the most direct sun light. This portion of the building is arranged along the east and north facing side where there is the least amount of direct sun light during the day.
