Aaaaand it’s up! Our very first Tech Tuesday feature for 2016! So guess what we have in store for you guys today? Well, we’re not holding back this year, not when one of our New Year’s resolutions is to make custom wine cellar projects bigger and better for our clients and prospective ones, too. That’s why we’re getting the ball rolling with this knockout creation utilizing only the most elite of WCI’s custom wine racking collection – the Platinum Series:
Name: Mike Swanson
Project # 242847
Wood: Platinum / Black Walnut
Bottle Capacity: 2064
Where: Collier, FL
This 2064-bottle capacity wine cellar is quite the head-turner. Crafted from Black Walnut and stained with a beautiful Dark Walnut finish, the wood wine racking units are elegant with a rustic flavor. The bolder hues make them really stand out against the walls and floors. Notice as well how the darker colors showcase the quality craftsmanship of the racking units, particularly the sleek edges and crown and base moldings:
The play of materials in this project is also something to talk about. We’re all for wine cellars that combine elements that really mesh like wood and glass. But apart from being a glass-enclosed cellar, this one also incorporates rough-hewn stone elements. The white-washed brick pillars are a contrasting mix to the smooth, dark wood racks and panels. The resulting effect is rustic but oh-so-classy. Needless to say, we absolutely love it!
Clever use of the individual and bulk bottle storage racks from the Platinum Series enables this wine cellar to host up to a little over 2000 bottles. The shot below shows just how space-efficient this wine cellar is but without compromising on the bottle storage capacity. Talk about nailing it! Our design team utilized Individual Bottle Columns, Individual Bottle Columns with High Reveals for Wine, Champagne and/or Split Bottles with Beam Supports, Diamond Bins with Solid Face Trim, Rectangular Bins, and Solid Vertical Displays to put together this gorgeous assembly.
We again would like to emphasize the smart move in making this into a glass-enclosed wine cellar because it will definitely be THE aesthetic highlight of this home, especially once the racks are filled up. Check out the strategic location of the cellar in the snapshot below. We’ll keep our fingers crossed for a shot of the filled-up wine cellar that we’ll surely be sharing with everyone. *Cheers*
