SPIRAL WINE CELLARS?
I received an email from one of my fave clients the other day. She is contemplating a dream kitchen for 2011 (Maybe you should too!) Anyway she sent me some of these amazing photos. Check out this dreamy spiral-trapdoor-otherworldly-cool wine cellar! Was this an internet hoax, an urban legend, I wondered?
NO! It's for real and you can check out the UK firm that builds them here. The appeal is not only novelty but efficient design. The concept was designed in 1978 by a Frenchman (of course). It's not a basement, as I first thought, but an actual hole in the ground!
It's not only space efficient but it's Green as well. They claim the temperature stays constant at 55 degrees. Ok, so it's probably still only a dream for us in Florida. If you dug that deep under my kitchen you'd have an undersea wine cellar. Now there's an idea!
