Case Design/Remodeling, Inc., Bethesda, Md.

by Kacey Larsen

Finished Basement | Silver

Project name: Wine Lover’s Lounge

After spending approximately a year in the design phase for converting an underwhelming basement into a show-stopping wine lounge, Case Design/Remodeling created a lower level living space with an open floor plan, media area, transparent wine cellar and sophisticated wood materials. Many walls and doors were removed to create the desired open concept. A significant structural column in the middle of the room could not be removed, but due to its location right outside the wine room the team created a tasting table around the column using the same wood for a seamless design. The client knew from the beginning that he wanted a specific wine racking system — including frameless glass panels and metal racks — by the Canadian company Vin De Garde, and the result is a wine room that is temperature and humidity controlled, holds approximately 240 bottles and is aesthetically pleasing. The basement space also includes a media room with modern furnishing; an accent wall that repeats the Figured Sapele wood from Crystal Cabinets in the wine room around the column/tasting table and behind the shelving in the desk area; and a new staircase with cherry stair trend with steel cable rail railing.
