Near Washington a bomb shelter inspires a wine room. Jackhammered concrete openings are left exposed. A layer of glass doors is added. The suspended wine, centered between transparent movable glass and static concrete, symbolize the mediator inviting conversation in during conflict. Even if the design is questioned, it at least fosters valuable conversation while judging. Perhaps done over a glass of wine.
