The team at Curious Yellow Designs was introduced to Vin de Garde when their New York City-based client requested the addition of a custom wine room in his home. Originally, the space was a 16,000 sq. ft. apartment building comprised of fifteen separate apartments. Today, the building has been transformed into a contemporary single family dwelling filled with light. The high design interior revamp includes a fresh color palate, a 1000-bottle custom wine cellar, a new kitchen and bathrooms, refreshed decor and contemporary custom furniture.
The creation of the richly textured black wine cellar was a joint effort, incorporating Vin de Garde’s modern minimalist design style with the sophisticated and elegant vision of Curious Yellow Designs. When designing the space, the client’s main goal was storage capacity to house up to 1000 bottles, including large format versions, while maintaining the contemporary aesthetic found throughout the home.
The resulting project covers a finished area of 8ft x 18ft. The cellar begins with a frameless glass-walled entrance that allows visibility throughout the main level of the home.
