Before: Off the main hallway from the entrance, the original triangular room was wasted space.

Before: Off the main hallway and entry, the original triangular room was wasted space.

New focal-point wine room was created when space was borrowed from the adjacent den to convert the wasted triangular corner into a conditioned wine room that holds several hundred bottles.

The original house was architecturally interesting because of the many angled walls, but the angles created problems for the original builder. Homeowners disliked a wasted triangular room adjacent to the main hallway and the kitchen. Space was borrowed from a large adjacent den, to create a new focal-point wine room , conditioned  area that holds several hundred bottles and a custom cigar humidor. Its proximity to the kitchen makes entertaining guests a joy, and it adds visual interest as guests enter the home.
