2016 Ruby Award Winner -
ASID Gulf Coast Chapter
Our client wanted to turn her under-used, old school home office into a feature that enhanced the home, her enjoyment of her wines and a place for conversation.
The custom racking includes cabinets, drawers, storage using black iron rods and more custom features.
Bottle Count: 2,000+
NCV handled the complete project including all design work, all construction tasks and the completion of the room.
Wine feature in The Houstonian in Houston
This wine room is made from stained walnut and features a gorgeous countertop made from tigers wood.
Before and after: glass custom wine feature
The client wanted a climate controlled wine feature to both store some of his large collection in his partially completed new townhome.
We turned a nondescript window that looked at the fence into a custom wine feature storing around 250 bottles. The refrigeration is hidden but accessible for service.
Bottle count: approximately 250
NCV developed the design and was responsible for the complete wine room, including the glass.
Large Wine Room in the Entertainment area
Images are available in person.
This wine feature is part of the casita that the homeowner added to their home outside of Austin. The wine room includes a variety of racking styles and a custom wood ladder.
Floor to ceiling wood columns were used to break up the long wall of racks.
Bottle Capacity: approximately 4,000
Lunstroth developed the design and was responsible for the complete wine room, working closely with the client, builder and decorator as needed.
Wine Feature Under the Stairs
This wine feature was built in a new home in Houston. It is aluminium pins installed on Oak walls that are stained black.
The far wall, the one without wine bottles, slopes along the slope of the stairs. The refrigeration equipment is installed in the lower area of this wall.
Strips of aluminum were installed between the pieces of oak in the sloping wall to mimic the pins. This room is in a home designed by Janet Gust, ASID.
The feature is part of the bar and visible from the den.
It was impossible to get a picture without the reflection.
NCV developed the design and was responsible for the complete wine room including the glass, working closely with the client.
modern wine feature in a traditional home
The client had us build two climate controlled wine features in the very old home that they gutted and remodeled. The interior of the home is traditional and subtle with every detail perfectly executed.
This upstairs wine feature was designed to both stand-out and blend in. We worked closely with the builder on things like having trim around the feature that is the same size and color of the crown molding. The interior of the feature is dark gray.
Bottle capacity: approximately 225
Pins: Vintage View
NCV worked closely with the client and decorator on the design, was responsible for the complete wine room, working closely with the client, builder and decorator as needed.
Wine Feature at Laurenzo's in Houston
Laurenzo's needed a wine feature to properly store and display their wines and there was no readily available space.
The team worked together to find a place in the dining room that met all the requirements and found it along the wall going to the restrooms. It is visible from the dining room, stores the necessary bottles of wine at the proper temperature and is very functional.
Racks: Reserve Wine Rack system from diamond life.

All Glass Wine Feature
This small but very cool wine feature provide climate controlled wine storage, is visually interesting within the house and acts as a divider between the dining room and kitchen.
It was complicated because we wanted the refrigeration equipment to be invisible so we had to figure out a way to install it in the kitchen cabinet.
Bottle Capacity: approximately 220.
