The Wine Cave celebrates the collection and display of wine. The brief was to create a sophisticated, upmarket wine store that brings together a wide range of wine from around New Zealand. The main room showcases the beauty of the wine bottles en masse. The impressive timber shelving grid lines the perimeter of the showroom.  Beautiful diffused light is achieved by back-lit shelves designed to reflect light off the wine bottles. The rigour of the grid continues over the ceiling with expressed battens and angled LED tube lights arranged in rhythmic pattern forming the feature lighting across the space.  With only an eight meter table centred in the room for wine-tasting, the overall effect is a theatrical cave that makes wine the star. A separate VIP room – the Wine Vault – is designed to be an intimate wine library built with a limited palette of rich, dark tones and only ambient light. Surrounded by eight hundred bottles of wine and classic style chairs you can curl up in, the Vault is a wonderful retreat to have a relaxed conversation while enjoying wine.
