GOLD MURPHY BROS. DESIGNERS & REMODELERS, MINNEAPOLIS, MINN. mbros.com Project name: Old World Wine Cellar Location: Eden Prairie, Minn. Square footage: 139 SILVER McDonald Remodeling, Inc., Inner Grove Heights, Minn., mcdonaldremodeling.com S eeking to transform an out- grown basement toy room into a private adult escape where the homeowners could savor their love for good wine and entertain, they wanted a space that incorporated old- world charm and rekindled memories of Paris wine tastings. Obtrusive HVAC ducts were rerouted to accommodate a series of three shallow aged brick and dis- tressed beam barrel vaults. Te room's single small window looked out at unat- tractive deck stairs, so an art glass insert was installed over the window to take advantage of the natural light while ob- scuring the unattractive view. Te home- owners wanted to incorporate a barrel to function as a table base, but it had to be shortened and stained to achieve the prop - er height and look for the granite table anchored to a nearby niche. Te designer and builder also incorporated an arched iron door, custom millwork, stone walls, functional niches, a hammered copper sink, themed lighting and a NuVo wireless sound system. | Specialty Room/ Niche Space QualifiedRemodeler.com QR September 2015 45
