Wine Room for a High-End Customized Home
With a focus on raw wine storage capacity, design and aesthetics, IWA built this dedicated 300 cu. ft. wine room in Tiburon, California. The project goals included an aesthetic that matched the rest of the home, maximizing bottle capacity and creating a "wow" factor for guests.
Opposite the door is a beautiful tabletop archway with dramatic display racking above the arch. To enlarge the countertop space and maximize bottle capacity, we designed double-deep solid-wood diamond racks below the tabletop. Bin storage is half-hidden in the dead corners of the cellar. The racks extend from floor to ceiling, which increases bottle capacity, and we designed a rolling ladder for access to bottles near the ceiling. We placed rectangular bins on the side walls for easy access to wood and carton cases. We used double display rows with LED accent lighting for maximum drama and impact.
IWA worked with owner and interior designer to choose finishes that would match the décor in the other rooms on that floor. Wine racks are mahogany wood with a dark walnut stain. The arched wine cellar door was designed to match the arch on the rear wall of the wine cellar. Tinted double-pane glass in the door provides thermal and UV protection inside the wine cellar. The ladder and cellar floors are stained to match the racking. Crown and base moldings, beveled ends and eased edges provide high-end finishing touches.
A CellarPro 3200VS cooling system was located in an adjacent room to remove compressor noise and create additional space inside the cellar. The controls and digital readout of the cooling unit are next to the wine cellar entrance for easy monitoring.
