For a wine loving client, Hoban Design were commissioned to design dramatic wine display cabinetry, fully climate controlled and accessible from the main kitchen. The challenge? It was required to display 180 bottles, maintain full zonal humidity and climate control suitable for reds, whites and champagnes and it was to be located in an extremely tight corridor.
As a result, significant structural interventions were installed to form the space for the cabinets. To suit the client’s unique aesthetics, the design incorporates Italian sourced full slabs of backlit onyx, floating staggered display shelving and a harmonious combination of santos rosewood with brass trims. The cabinetry was accompanied by a matching boot-room nook.
At 17,000sqft, the new home will set a new landmark in large scale modernist aesthetics and design within the exclusive Coombe Estate area.
