This lower-level wine cellar was designed to capture the essence of an old-world Raskellar, with all the amenities of today's technology. From the locally reclaimed brick floor to the carvernous architecture and rustic furnishings, this space feels like a different place & time. The cleverly designed wine storage behind finger-print activated security panels, makes it the ultimate cellar for a connoisseur.
2011 ASID Award Winning Design
This 10,000 square foot home was built for a family who prized entertaining and wine, and who wanted a home that would serve them for the rest of their lives. Our goal was to build and furnish a European-inspired home that feels like ‘home,’ accommodates parties with over one hundred guests, and suits the homeowners throughout their lives.
We used a variety of stones, millwork, wallpaper, and faux finishes to compliment the large spaces & natural light. We chose furnishings that emphasize clean lines and a traditional style. Throughout the furnishings, we opted for rich finishes & fabrics for a formal appeal. The homes antiqued chandeliers & light-fixtures, along with the repeating hues of red & navy offer a formal tradition.
Of the utmost importance was that we create spaces for the homeowners lifestyle: wine & art collecting, entertaining, fitness room & sauna. We placed fine art at sight-lines & points of interest throughout the home, and we create rooms dedicated to the homeowners other interests.

Paul, could you do something like this where you put a table in the middle of a circular space and the wine cellar has a few openings like this? More of a walk way between the openings so that is all one. You could use this for cards or for wine tastings? Just a thought.
