Originally built in 1960 with a reasonably sized kitchen,
this home had been renovated with an addition for a new,
larger kitchen. This left the previous space available to use as a
substantial walk-in pantry. The reach-in closet was speci;cally
re-designed to house the client’s custom table leaves.
This job consisted of mini wine bottle storage, full size wine
bottle storage and magnum bottle storage. Considering the
width restraints, double-depth bottle storage was added on one
side of the room. Removable panels conceal all access points
for wires and plumbing.

The client wanted this contemporary wine room to re;ect
the curves of the wine bottle, the wine glass and the wine
barrel. So a mirrored serpentine curve was added on the left
and right sides that ;ows into the decanting reverse curve at
the center back area. Steam-bent white oak creates the curved
shapes of the racking components.
