2008 | Paradise Valley, AZ | Private Wine House | 880 sq ft

One of life’s greatest pleasures is to find something you can be passionate about. If one is lucky, the ability to share that passion with others generates even greater enjoyment. Being given the opportunity to design a space exclusively around the unconventional experience of ‘a passion’ – versus the conventional idea of ‘wine storage’ – is an exceptional task. Designing a space which exists only to enhance this experience requires a designer to surrender alternative agenda to the passion itself, for any other solution only undermines the outcome.
