In summer 2017, we received a really interesting order for a design project. The wine room had to be located in the basement of a single-family house. Space had the following dimensions: the area was 16 sq m and the height was 2.3 m. It had already been prepared for decoration and equipped with a large wine refrigerator that had to fit perfectly into the interior. We took up the project with great enthusiasm.
First of all, we came in to take all measurements, look at the space that was going to house the wine room and, of course, take some pictures. The walls had already been covered in photo wallpaper with wine corks, labels, and drawers. The floor had been laid with decorative tiles and the lights had been installed around the perimeter of the ceiling. The massive wooden door added to the tranquillity and solidity of the place.
Based on the dimensions of the future wine room and its interior, we put forward a few solutions for the design project and materials that would suit the walls and the floor.
The design projects we offered differed in the number of wine modules, their arrangement, and configuration. The first project intended to house 442 bottles in the wine room, whereas the second – 297.
Eventually, the customer opted for the second project – with smaller capacity but more open space. In this variant, a part of one of the walls was left empty, and the customer decided to put a sofa there.
After the project was confirmed, we prepared a price quote with the details of the view, dimensions and required numbers of each element of the future wine room. We also provided the customer with a choice of samples of finishing materials and tabletops. The customer chose the walnut finishing and marble in sandy pink for the tabletop.
At last, the wine room project was launched into production. After a while, the modules assembled at the factory were taken to their installation site to be mounted there.
To the left of the entrance, there was put a corner furniture unit consisting of various modules, to the right of it – the wine furniture and the refrigerator. The corner wall unit located opposite the entrance was fitted with a wine tasting module – with a tabletop and glass holders above it. The same furniture section carries roll-out shelves, inclined display shelves and open modules for storage of bottles. In front of the display shelves beneath each bottle compartment, there is a label holder.
The unit to the left of the entrance consists of wine modules. There are modules with different layouts of diagonal shelves, a section with hexagonal compartments for each bottle, simple open sections, display shelves and closed modules with bas-reliefs. The modules with inclined shelves inside are designed for storage of most expensive wines.
On the wall to the right of the entrance, there are racks with roll-out shelves on either side of the refrigerator with a variety of open sections for storing wine: both with and without pockets for each bottle, as well as closed modules with bas-reliefs. Each bas-relief shows an eagle sitting on a branch; the image of this noble bird ideally suits to the decor of the furniture that stores the noble drink.
The wine room is delicately furnished in the style of classicism with predominantly light colors: a compact sofa, two armchairs, and a low walnut table.
The project implementation took about a month from the moment the order was submitted to the grand wine tasting in the new, comfy and stylish room. The customer was very pleased with the result of our work, so were we. This room must be equally good both for storing a wine collection and spending time with a glass of the favourite drink and a heart-warming conversation.
