Wine cooler favorite addition in house remodel

A couple purchased a home that I originally designed for another family years ago. While it’s a spectacular house, they asked me to make some changes to meet the needs of their busy family. They added a dedicated game room and an office for the husband’s business, among other changes. But I have to say the one feature that probably draws the most admirers is the new wine cooler. This is built into a gallery wall off the great room, and it’s a showpiece–holding hundreds of bottles of refrigerated wine in a discreet steel rack cantilevered off a rock wall. The four steel doors provide access and a nice architectural element as well. I’ve done wine coolers for other clients, but I think this one may be the largest to date. I look forward to showing more images of this house in the near future–it’s been a great project.

It's tough to get a good photo of it with the glare–hopefully soon I'll get a more professional shot taken. For now this gives you the idea.

    That is one gorgeous wine fridge! I’m just wondering if the entire thing is cooled to one temperature.

    The wine cooler was insulated on all sides, top, and bottom. There were vapor barriers put on the outside of the cooler. It is a unit that has a fan coil in the back wall with a condensing unit outside. It maintains one termperature and controls the humidity inside the unit.
