Our client in Sandpit Lane, St Albans has remodelled their home to suit their lifestyle with a below-floor wine pod as a centrepiece. Home transformations come in many shapes and sizes but when there is a wine pod involved, you know the overall specification will be exacting and the finished result will be stunning. Its now a beautiful building in St Albans.
This building project has entailed Abbey Building Services and Maintenance adding a two-storey extension to the side of the property. This provides a much-needed double garage and utility room at ground floor level, whilst upstairs there is now a purpose-built home gym. The existing footprint of the property has been reworked to create an open plan kitchen and dining area, complete with the building and installation of an underfloor wine pod cellar as a design feature.
Floor level wine pods and spiral wine cellars provide space saving, climate-controlled capacity to store wine in the home. By carefully positioning the solid concrete wine pod together with in-built natural ventilation through humidity ports, we can ensure the perfect temperature and humidity for successful wine storage.
Because the wine pod or spiral wine cellar can be conveniently accessed at floor level, there is no need to incur the cost of building an underground basement room or full-height cellar room. With its thick glass access hatch, steel collar flush with the floor and gas strut for effortless opening, the wine pod is an ingenious engineering solution. The finishes make wine pods an impressive feature of any property with chrome racking, a mirrored base and smartphone-controlled LED lighting to create the right ambiance.
This wine pod installation adds to the appeal of this already impressive building in St Albans. It’s an attractive visual feature that Abbey’s specialist craftspeople are delighted to incorporate when building extensions and completing refurbishment projects.
