A look at ten inspiring temperature-controlled wine cellars in private homes by various architects and interior designers.
Inspiring Wine Cellars
The following ten wine cellars are so stunning even a Teetotaler would want one.
1. Designed by architect Eddie Jones of Jones Studio for the Thurston House in Paradise Valley, AZ, this stunning circular cellar has a brick exterior and a wood interior featuring a large glowing light.
2. Designed by Focus Wine Cellars, this private ultra-modern cylindrical shaped cellar is as wild on the exterior as the interior. Inside CNC-cut glass shelving is arranged in a polar array of 300 degrees from floor to ceiling and LED lighting illuminates the shelves.
The exterior appears as a large curious cylinder in the back of the room with small illuminated glowing windows.
3. Designed by Butler Armsden Architects for a San Francisco Townhouse, this cellar makes the most of a small space.
It has acrylic storage drawers, wall shelving and even makes use of the ceiling space.
6. Designed by Marcio Kogan of Brazil’s Studio mk27, this wine cellar in the Ipêz House is a sophisticated minimal wood design with sliding glass doors framed in wood.
7. Designed by Revel, known for their luxury custom wine cellars, this private wine cellar in a Houston home holds 1,752 bottles in it’s semi-circular design.
Protected by glass door entry, the illuminated wood shelving and storage can be seen through interior windows inset in the walls of the dining room.
8. Designed by Cool Wine Cellar, this freestanding glass enclosed cellar has been constrcuted in the basement of a private home.
9. Designed by Joseph & Curtis, this New York understair wine cellar is a perfect example of the design and engineering expertise that the custom builders bring to projects.
The client had several people look at the space and were told ‘it can’t be done, there is no place to locate a cooling system and vent hot air.’ So Joseph & Curtis customized a cooling system and designed a venting system which they now consider a trade secret.
The result is a centerpiece to the first floor of this NYC duplex that features a polished chrome interior, Starphire glass & LED lighting to store & display the homeowners impressive wine collection.
10. Of all the wine cellars out there, Spiral Cellars of the UK makes the most unusual.
Set below ground, they offer three styles and three different depths of the cylindrical underground cellars to hold different numbers of bottles. Hinged or sliding doors (which can be transparent or solid) are available and each has wide steps for an easy descent.
