Meyer Wine Cellar – Coppell TX Project – A Processed Video Transcription
I invite you to walk with me on a journey through the design and construction of a very unique Texas wine cellar from vision to completion. The original space as you can see is under a curved and slanted staircase. The closet at the end was only about 2 feet deep, with unknown space behind it.
The Unique Texas Residential Wine Cellar Design
We did the drawings designing the structure with our customer’s design in mind. They requested wood case storage, metal wine racks and lots of glass. They also wanted some stone on the walls.
This is the overhead view. This is the front section, and the back wall section. Both sections have role in case storage below the 3-deep metal racks. We added a grill cover and box over the wine cellar door and a matching wood to hide the interior fan coil of the cooling unit.
Here, you are seeing the 3D wine cellar design that we put together to show our customer what the cellar would look like upon completion.
Here is where the demo was begun, and this is what we found. The floor tiles only went back 2 1/2-foot space of the original closet. We installed the electrical in roughed in for a ductless split climate control system. We added matching tiles and closed cell foam in the walls and ceiling.
Several other steps were completed before the cellar was done. The completed Texas wine cellar includes iron frame door and windows to provide maximum viewing from the exterior.
The walls and ceiling inside and out were created by blowing crushed limestone from France onto the surfaces, and then hand-carving and coloring into the stone look requested by our customers.
This view shows the finished room with the mahogany role in case storage below. Tabletops and brushed nickel 3D metal racking above.
Notice the LED spotlights on the opposite wall directed toward the racks. LED ribbon lighting was also installed behind the case storage to allow lighting to shine up the back wall. Both the ribbon lighting and spot LED lighting are on separate dimmable switches, allowing for lighting changes. Role in case storage allows easy access to the individual cases.
The Cooling System
The grill cover and box over the entrance hides the fan coil. It matches the other wood pieces and is manufactured in mahogany with chestnut color stain and lacquer. We changed the airflow on this wine cooling unit so that the cold air drops down and circulates within the room and rises as warm air sleeping through the grill cover at the top at the ceiling height.
Looking into the cellar from the door, you can see an up-close look at the iron done in a pewter color. This is a modern contemporary climate-controlled wine cellar, incorporating wood, metal, and stone. It’s beautiful and unique.
