Commercial Custom Wine Cellars are a completely different challenge to most of the projects we have featured so far. Here our latest project, a commercial wine display and refrigerated wine cellar is a great example of just how different they can be!
Constructed in glass and metal this wine cellar created for a new restaurant in Irvine California called Capital Seafood was an opportunity for us to design something that would wow the clients whilst at the same time provide high density practical wine storage. Capital Seafood is a trendy new dining experience in the Irvine Spectrum Center offering dim sum, fresh seafood, not so Americanized traditional Chinese dishes all with ambiance and great service. Try the Thai Beef Salad and Hot and Sour Soup, we did, they were very, very nice!
The 7′ square commercial custom wine cellar is 10′ high and all glass, with the exception of one wall. The racking, a mix of standard and custom metal wine racks all with a black satin finish from VintageView has a total capacity of 1,011 wine bottles. Most of the metal wine racks are standard components which are available in 2 height options, with these we were able to pretty much do any height we needed enabling us to keep the overall cost within budget. One of the glass wall elevations is a one of a kind – a custom metal wine rack display that offers direct visibility from the entry and to the bar/lounge area presenting the wine menu or inventory. Due to the nature of these types of metal wine racks the wine bottles are highly visible and look almost like they are floating in the air unsupported. This is ideal in a commercial restaurant setting where the goal is to display inventory and impress clients with select labels.
10′ or higher glass walls are not unusual in the commercial and hospitality industries and certainly make for impressive wine displays. In constructing and mounting the metal wine racks we used floor to ceiling mounted frames upon which we secured single, double and triple depth horizontal wine displays.
Raw Canvas – Commercial Wine Cellar Design
In designing this commercial wine storage display we had a raw canvas as nothing was in place to start with. As part of this project there was a fair bit of construction to frame and drop the ceiling, add special lighting and ducting to the wine cellar cooling system, all so that it would be invisible to the restaurant’s clientele. Clearly important when dealing with an all glass wine cellar. The walls were constructed with dual pane glass to eliminate condensation and the entry door has a digitally controlled security locking mechanism. The wine cellar refrigeration system is a ducted self-contained air handler is situated up in the ceiling 20′ from the wine room itself.
The actual displays are a mix of a custom presentation row, lateral and 15 degree pitch presentations that create a highly visible unique look. The main benefit using this type of metal wine racks from VintageView for the display is their eye catching visual impact.
