Part of an extensive renovation, this wine room adjoins the kitchen and living areas and provides exceptional entertaining with coffee bar, wine storage and cocktail corner included. The original plan was to have a butlers pantry but as the house is over 100 years old, removing the wall between it and the kitchen wasn’t possible as the brick was crumbly and very structural. A quick rethink created this amazingly useful and beautiful space that is so much more than a wet bar.
The client wanted
Making the most of a difficult space that used to be a highly impractical laundry, each millimetre was manipulated to house two wine fridges, ceramic sink with hot, cold and sparkling water on tap, a full sized coffee machine, wine and bar storage.
Shaped shelving is beautiful and functional for wine storage and houses cocktail mixes and barware. Floating stone shelving houses glassware above the coffee machine and is in easy reach of the dining table.
A large opening was created in the non structural wall to house two highly functional glass barn doors. The ribbed glass lets light flood the adjoining dinig space but easily hides any mess and adds to the ambience of the dining room.
The space opens for easy entertaining with direct access to coffee and cocktail making facilities. It’s location adjacent to the dining room and back deck makes celebrating the cocktail hour a breeze in this stunning renovation.
