Westfield NJ Contemporary Custom Wine Cellar
Joseph & Curtis Custom Wine Cellars have designed and built many traditional wine cellars in this leafy hamlet of center hall colonials where not surprisingly the client asks for a classic wine cellar design with wood wine racks.
Recently however, we completed a wine cellar in one such classic Westfield New Jersey home, but you might be more likely to see this contemporary wine cellar in Tribeca or Miami.
We met with the client and he said he wanted something contemporary, even a bit industrial looking with very clean lines and a design that would allow him to see his entire wine collection (which is predominantly French & Italian) at a glance.
We designed a glass and stainless steel facade with custom made metal wine racks inside that consist of raw carbon steel and stainless steel. The rods that cradle both 750ml & magnums are ‘terraced’ so that you can see all bottles from front to back.
Because of the massive weight of all the steel, we had to bring everything in in pieces and actually weld the steel wine racks on site! The client got a bit nervous when we fired the welding torch up, but we assured him no damage would occur to surrounding areas.
Once the welding sparks died down and smoke cleared, the result was a 16′ long one of a kind contemporary wine cellar with refrigeration and custom humidification systems. LED lighting bars are recessed into the ceiling for a very sleek and clean look.
Guests at this Westfield home will be quite surprised at what they find inside.
