We are really pleased to debut one of our latest custom wine cellars completed in the city of Honolulu on the island of Oahu in Hawaii. This is because it is one of our favorite jobs and a great example of outstanding taste and design. The wine racking was built in mahogany and left unfinished for a pleasing natural look.
The wine cellar has a capacity of 2,446 wine bottles as well as several distinctive design features. The natural look does a great job of complementing the clients’ dark stained cabinet and sink which is a focal point of the wine room, the mix just works.
Incorporating a French style custom wine cellar doors with custom wrought iron detail and dual pane glass, the wood species on the doors is knotty alder with early American stain and finish.
In the video describing this project we show you through the design drawings, concepts and constraints behind the finished wine cellar. This cellar is designed to be a focal point of an elegant dining area, not just a basement wine storage room so it had to live up to the rest of the room becoming a focal point in keeping with the existing décor. The use of quarter round display shelves were incorporated to enhanced the style enabling magnums and other personal items to be displayed.
The custom wine cellar doors were created with dual pane glass with wrought iron detail offering an attractive grape vine look. In addition they were manufactured to handle the temperature difference between the dining room and the wine cellar. Within the wine racking design the corners are designed with true radiuses, this means there are no unsightly angles or segmented cornering to any part of this wine cellar.
One of the required design elements for this wine room was working around the family heirloom cabinet that was to be the featured center piece of the room and surrounded with wine racking. Over this heirloom we created a feature lattice style arch, the beauty of which has to been seen to be fully appreciated. The wood species chosen for this job was mahogany and was intentionally left unfinished as unfinished mahogany is particularly beautiful. The wood’s light tan color was perfect for creating a very pleasing natural look.
