I truly appreciate my repeat clients. Especially when they fall deep into the passion of wine tasting and collecting. After only a few short years after finishing the clients first cellar, they needed more space for case storage expansion. An under-the-stair space can be utilized in an imaginative way especially when it can grow into large enough area for a proper refrigeration system.
Referrals from another client is always very special. This client had an unused art room where the mother and daughter used to create art projects together. Now they were ready to renovate this space into a destination space of their home for entertaining adjacent to the billiards parlor and sitting room, wet bar and powder rooms. I still remember when the husband asked what my vision was and before I could even reply, the wife said…….honey, leave Evan alone. He is an artist!
A client calls one day and says, “I would like to convert my dining room into a wine storage room”. I said, “are you sure you want to do that? Yes, and my wife wants some very unusual wood!” One wormy chestnut wine storage room coming up and don’t forget the brick pavers on the floor.

It was a challenge to build a wine cellar with all of the required mechanical and storage space in the pricey New York City where ever square footage is at a premium.

Is the third time the charm? Working with clients over many years allows one to truly understand how their collection grows.

The grandeur of the space becomes visible through a stair landing and the lighting does the rest.
